Nicholas SPEAKS

This is one of those spine tingling moments that I wouldn’t have actually believed if Nicholas’ nurse Dan-Dan and his oldest sister Daisha hadn’t been standing right there watching it happen with me!  We we’re yattering on and on about home refinancing for like 20 minutes and suddenly we realized on the floor in pristine order was HOME from Nicholas’ magnetic alphabet letters.  Daisha thought Dan-Dan had spelled it.  And then we realized Nicholas had spelled it.  We just couldn’t believe it.  Then we all stood around him stunned as he spelled SHELF and then OVER.  We were all clapping and cheering and asked him to spell dog.  He calmly picked out the letters DOG.  Then he said “jet” and spelled JET and then changed out the J for W and spelled WET.  We literally all screamed in unison — If I could figure out how to download my video cam stuff we’d show you all the whole thing! — Nicholas never ceases to amaze me!  Thank you, thank you…little man for being so amazing!

  3. Hello Nicole!
    I am now living in New York and Little Man is playing right now on Showtime! I am crying, I am so proud of him and all of his accomplishments. His first two years in school with me were a learning experience for all of us and to see where he is now is amazing. Give him a hug and a kiss for me and I hope you are all doing well.

    love,

  4. Hi Nicholas and Family,
    I saw your film on showtime and was inspired to write and see how thi8ngs were going I found this site and am so happy and releaved to hear you are stronger than ever and keeping your head held high! Very inspirational story and I think it really makes people open their eyes and hearts to preemie babies around the world.
    A strong mother you have, with the strength and love to fight all the external voices that must have been discouraging and hopeless. I admire your courage and love that you passed on to your son, and all people who read or have seen your story.
    You are truly an amazing family with the power to prove the strength of ultimate love and hope!
    Sincerely,
