On January 20th my son and I traveled to New Jersey so that I could finally meet Declan Bryant Malone-Caldwell!! I cried when I met him and when I left him.
I was so shocked at how big he was and what a beautiful little boy. He weighs 14 pounds and 12 ounces, he is rarely still unless he’s sleeping and when he talks to us he sounds so serious!!! I hope you enjoy the pictures I’ve attached of this wonderful little guy that was born almost three months too soon and weighed only two pounds and two ounces in July 2016.
We had a wonderful three days with him and I can’t wait to go for another visit but it truly breaks my heart to leave him. He is a very happy little boy and his mom said that when he has the final surgery she will feel better traveling any distance with him. She said she would bring him to the farm when she feels she can safely travel any distance away from his neonatal doctors and his regular physicians.
Then we had to leave, but I hope to get up to NJ one more time before he turns one year old. Our son visits him once a month and Declan’s Grandmother Malone keeps in touch with me almost daily and sends us pictures every day that she is with him.
