Ward Miles – First Year
A year from yesterday Ward came home.
32 years from today his mother was born.
I made this for both of these special days as a surprise for his mother, Lyndsey
This is a story of a mother’s love for her baby…
It sums up my son’s first year. He was born way too early, and the obstacles he had to overcome were really big, but not bigger than our God.
Many of you have not seen Ward like this. You have seen pictures. You have read a lot of posts. But, I think this video will show just how small he was when he was born, and how sick he was. I didn’t hold back when editing. I didn’t just include cute clips. There are some nasty moments. The reason being, I wanted people to see how bad he looked, so that when they look at him today they get a better sense of how far he has come. It is truly a miracle and we thank God daily for getting him to where he is!
I also want to thank all the doctors, nurses, and staff all over the world that make it their life’s mission to help babies get better! It’s because of you that my son ever stood a chance to make it home!
Here is a photo of Ward today. This was taken July 25th, 2015.
The following photos are from random moments over the last few years.
Song: ‘Happiness’ by The Fray
For the record… I have not made a single cent off of this video. I know a lot of people are complaining that I put ADs up… but I didn’t. I never wanted ADs on this video. YouTube ID’d the song in it and automatically put them up when they realized it was going viral. I had no say in the matter.
