Especially made for Sebastian... You are a star!!!

Yesterday before bed... as usual... my time to visit my lovely blogger mates...When I read about this little boy Sebastian on my friend The Sweetest - Amy Tsuruta's blog, I cried... it was hard for me to sleep after... tossing and turning...In my thought - whatever problems I am facing right now... its too trivial compares to what Sweet boy Sebastian has to face each day!!!...

Please STOP for a moment and read ......

Sebastian suffers from Arthrogryposis - he has stiff joints and abnormally developed muscles which makes even picking up a pencil a challenge. Yet he is happy despite the daily challenges he faces. His mother worries that he will soon notice the finger pointing and the judgement from strangers. That is one cruel and painful reality.

On February 15th, Sebastian will go into the hospital for another surgery. His sweet teacher is organizing a card drive for this boy to cheer him on. In her words, "Maybe, just maybe, when the day arrives that he notices the finger pointing and hears the name calling instead of being sad he'll remember the day that people from everywhere filled his hospital room with love."

Will you be joinning me in making and sending a card to Sebastian? [And I know for a fact you ladies would - coz you ladies are amazing bunch!!]

wow such an amazing story ... sometimes human beings are so cruel ... so pleased you posted this story I will make a card for sure .. no body ever knows what someone else has to endure .. must be so difficult for Sebastian and his family.. I am sending healing light to them all xoxoxo
my daughter is badly scarred from a burn she had when she was a small child and the adults used to say horrendous things to her .. I have to wonder where their heart is sometimes ???
big hugz to you xoxo
