Jennifer M. in Napa, California just sent us this video of blind-and-deaf Gabe rolling in their yard. Jennifer and her husband Paul adopted Gabe from us back in 2010, soon after Gabe had finished a lengthy period of cancer treatment requiring both surgery and weeks of radiation therapy. (Jennifer and Paul later adopted three-legged Ella, who you saw in a recent post asleep in Paul's arms.)
When she emailed me this clip, Jennifer wrote, "Love this boy more than words can say! Finally got him on video!" Some nice rolling followed by several contented snorts!
It was just three years ago when we found out in an MRI what kind of tumor we were dealing with in Gabe. Thanks to our donors, Gabe was able to get world-class medical treatment that truly saved his life. And to see how he's living now ... wow.
