Trevor Update

Things have been crazy over here, as usual.  There is so much I could be posting, and will, but I want to update you on Trevor and his family.  He is not doing well.  The tumor in his throat is growing and it is believed that he now has tumors growing in his brain.  These are causing him to have horrible migrains.  Through it all, he manages to keep his positive attitude and embrace life to the fullest.  He has had many opportunities given to him lately by others who are moved by his story.  He has attended a Saints game, gone up in a private airplane, and performed a science experiment at a high school (yep...that's what he wanted to do!) lol...

Trevor's mom, Allison, has her hands full.  She is a single mom of 3 small children, one of which is losing his battle with cancer.  Allison's story has been a story of survival from the very beginning.  As she shares it with me, I just sit there with my mouth hanging open.  Nothing has been easy for this mom.  Through it all though, I have never heard her complain!  She is sad and overwhelmed, but she is dealing with all of this with such grace.  I am honored to be a part of her story.

Right now, her youngest child is staying with us.  Tiana is 3 and fits right in to this family.  We love having her here.  Her mom misses her so much, but right now she needs to be able to focus on Trevor.

They were all over the other night and I snapped some pics.  I have also enjoyed taking some pics of Tiana while everyone else is at school.  She LOVES all the girls toys and princess dresses!!!

 Trevor wanted to shoot the guns again :)  So funny that he doesn't have a shirt on...something about this house, I'm afraid!!

I love that my boys love to make these little girls laugh!

With the girls at school, I haven't had as many photo ops lately.  I have had fun taking some pics of sweet Tiana!!

I've had a crash course in African American hair this past week :)  How about this bedhead!!!!

Please continue to pray for Trevor and his whole family.  They need it!

I was just thinking about him a few days ago. Thank you so much for the update. Sending lots of positive thoughts and prayers up for his family. I can't imagine how difficult that must be for his momma.

What do your girls think about Tiana's gorgeous hair?? I'm thinking they want those beautiful curls as well. I'm so glad Tiana has found the Doughty family and yall have provided her a soft place to fall. Love to you and yours and prayers for sweet Trevor.
