Here's the deal

On February 4, 2012 Wesley was in a skiing accident and broke his neck. He is 16 years old and is planning to graduate high school this year. There are not many 16 year old boys as amazing as he is. He is kind, thoughtful, and good date on his progress. I will make sure Wesley gets to read every comment this blog receives. My siblings and I will try to keep this blog current.

A few special thank yous...

We had a great Sunday. Wesley's spirits were up today. He had a few visitors today that made him smile a lot. The two munchkins took turns sitting on his bed giving him kisses and holding his hand. They would try to straighten his fingers for him as well. He likes that.

This little girl smiles a lot around Wes and Wes smiles a lot around her.

Now for a few big Thank yous. I know Destiny Rochford was behind this. She is a few years older than Wesley and has helped out so much. She was able to contact the Sacramento Kings and the BYU basketball team to get some treats for Wesley. Thank you Destiny... so much!

We would also like to thank Jimmer Fredette with the Sacramento Kings for signing a hat and sending it to Wesley. I love how he looks so good wearing a hat. He was so happy to get this hat.

Another package came for Wesley recently and it had a signed basketball from the BYU basketball team along with a signed poster. We were overwhelmed with gratitude as we saw Wesley's eyes light up when he saw the ball. He had me put his hand on the ball so he could feel it.

I love this picture of Wes because he looks genuinely content and happy. I would do anything to lift his spirits and I am thankful Destiny was able to get things done.

Wesley is doing well. He will hopefully get transferred to Barrows Rehab tomorrow or Tuesday. He is looking forward to starting the program. We have heard it is very difficult. He is going to have to work harder than he ever has had to. He is going to need a lot of prayers, encouragements, and love. I will have to post pictures of his room. The walls are covered in pictures and posters he has been given and I know these new items will be placed somewhere he can see them. This guy is tough. He knows he can get through this by putting his faith in the Lord and I know that is what he will do.

I hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for your continued support.

I would like to take a moment to share some bad news I received from my community back home in Louisiana. A couple in our ward (church congregation) and their step son were victims in a robbery. The husband and son were killed and the wife was seriously injured. The brutality of this story made me cry. Please  keep this family in your prayers as well. Here is a link to the story:


  1. What amazing friends and family you have!!! Wesley looks so happy...brings tears to my eyes. What an amazing person he is! Our prayers continue to go out to him and your family!
    We will also pray for the family in your ward in Louisiana. So very sad!

  2. I'm really glad that all that stuff got to him. Keep it up Wes!!! We all love and are praying for you! You're doing great! and looking great with that new hat!!! :)You're a super star!!!
