Our son Keith was and is a miracle child. God chose him to do great things. Although we may not know exactly what his job was, or why he only had 21 months on earth. We do know that he brought families closer together and a love to last a life time. Keith could melt the heart of anyone that looked into his bright blue eye. My "Little Man" had to fight for his life from the very begining till the day he passed away. If you were to see him on his good day's you would never have guessed all the pain and surgeries he had gone through. Keith loved to play patty cake, roll over, move to music, sing with the Speech Therapist, look at books with the Vision Therapist, say "mama, dada,& bubba", and he loved to be held. Keith also loved to fall asleep right before PT & OT could work with him. My "Little Man" always had either his red dog pacifier or his foot in his mouth at all times. He lost more socks from pulling them off with his teeth and dropping them on the floor no matter where we were. He was a child who was loved and loved to be loved by all. I was told from day one that my son would never be a normal child and that his life on earth would be very short. As a mother I did not listen. I did try to live everyday as his if it were his last just because it gave me the chance to love him even more. He has tons of family that adored and loved him. I am so proud of his father Keith I, and his older sister's Cheyenne, Alexis, and Montana for not getting bitter for all the times we had to be apart. Keith was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus ex vacuo, and the absence of the (R) eye ball. He had a prosthetic eye, and an unusual shaped head but in our eyes he was beautiful and perfect in every way. Others may have labeled him as a "Special Needs Child", but to our family he was a "Need for a Special Child" in our life. If I could wish one thing in his short life it would be that everyone could have seen how wonderful he truely was. I want to thank my mom taking the time away from work to care for him, and the rest of my family for loving him for all he was. I enjoyed taking care of him and having the time to love him. I will always LOVE MY "LITTLE MAN". Keith, I thank you for letting me be your mommy, and I thank God for choosing us to be your parents.
