That statistic has haunted me since the day we learned of Matthew's diagnosis. Since then, there have been too many days and nights I was scared he would fall on the wrong side of that statistic.
On Friday, I will be letting it go because our sweet, tenacious, unique, opinionated, fun-loving Matthew will be 5! It is a day I wasn't sure he'd ever see. Friday, we plan to celebrate it like the awesome miracle that it-- he-- is!
