Aaron just turned 8 years old, and we loved getting to celebrate him! We threw a fun party for him among sweet friends, and Aaron smiled so big when we sang “Happy Birthday” to him. It’s a joy to know and love Aaron, and we’re hoping for big things in his life this year!

We’re thankful for a wonderful physical therapy team that’s helping Aaron grow stronger. And thanks to a generous donor, we have some new equipment that helps support Aaron as he moves into a standing position. His physical therapist says he’s doing well and enjoys practicing!

Aaron loves to be held and cuddled. He has fun whenever someone holds him and spins him around! We love Aaron’s sunny personality and are grateful to be able to care for him.

Aaron’s smile widens as soon as he sees a bottle of bubbles. He loves bubbles, and giggles whenever they float around his face.

What a fun fall it’s been for Aaron! We celebrated the season with an autumn festival where the children dressed up in costumes, listened to fun music, made a pumpkin craft, and got to collect treats from different caregivers around the room. The kids loved it, and Aaron looked so cute as a blue lego toy. We made a costume that wrapped around his wheelchair, and he wore the biggest grin the whole time!

It’s been a special month for Aaron. We just celebrated his 7th birthday with a pirate-themed party! Aaron enjoyed cupcakes with chocolate icing and sprinkles, and the whole party was full of balloons and friends. It is such a joy to celebrate birthdays with these precious children, and we’re hoping for big things for Aaron’s 7th year!

He’s doing well in physical therapy, and seems to thoroughly enjoy it. He’s very interactive and smiles a lot while the physical therapy nannies work with him to keep him comfortable and help him to become more active.
