Twelve and a half years ago, we didn’t know if Gerrit would reach three – let alone fifteen! Well, I am happy to say, here he is at fifteen, and doing great!

(Read his miracle journey here)

He loves: playing with his brothers, airsoft, video games, guitar and most of all his “baby” (cat) Lulu!

We are so proud of him and all that he has become in his fifteen years. He has a good heart and a love for God, animals and his family. He’s still not sure what direction he wants to head in life, but I know that he was put here for a purpose and has already made the world a brighter place for all who know him.

 Happy Birthday Gerrit!

You will always be my miracle boy.

    Stumbled across your blog ‘accidentally’ today! Yours is a beautiful story and an inspiration to all mothers. It is good to know that in a world where people will not acknowledge God and His active presence in our lives you and your family remembered Him in your most difficult hour. And a happy birthday to Gerrit and may God continue to grant him a blessed and full life. It is said that one of the best ways to thank God for all he has done in our lives is to give testimony. And you have set the ball rolling…
