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.

Another Highlight for Wes from last week

Many of you, who know Wes, know he is very politically opinionated. He has watched all of the republican presidential debates and has watched them with a very open mind. In this process he has watched to see who he would vote for, if he were old enough to vote. After each debate Wes and my dad would discuss all the positives and negatives of each candidate. Even after Wesley's accident they still found time to watch the debates.
A few months ago Wesley determined his favorite candidate was Mitt Romney. Wes and my Dad have had a good time watching voting in each state and celebrating Mitt Romney's victories. Wes believes Mitt Romney to be honest, honorable and a great example for fathers and families. He believes Mitt Romney will do what it takes to make this nation great again and to live within its means. Not to spend more than it takes in, in taxes. He also believes Mitt to be an honorable priesthood holder which really says it all. We don't mean to offend anyone because of their voting preference and wish the best for everyone.
Last week Wesley received a personal video message from Mitt Romney himself that put a huge smile on his face.

A very special thanks to friends that made this possible. Mitt Romney, as you can imagine is a tremedously busy man, and even a few spare moments at this time in the campaign are rare and very valuable. We cannot thank Mitt enough for taking the time to cheer up the life of someone who is overcoming significant challenges with a smile and hard work.
Mitt, your example towards Wes says more than words could ever say about who you are and what you stand for. You are the type of leader that boys and men can pattern their lives after. You are a faithful husband and father and family comes first.

You will notice the Romney for president sticker that is over the door in Wesley's hospital room. A dear friend gave it to Wes a few weeks after we arrived here at Barrows and he asked me to put it above his door. Wes is a real Romney supporter.
