Braden is what you call a fighter.  He was diagnosed with a rare (1 : 100,000 births) genetic condition called Larsen’s Syndrome.  He is able to walk, and is quite active inspite of everything.  He was full of energy and life when I met with him and the rest of his family last weekend and I was amazed at how fast this kid moves!!!  He was constantly climbing rocks, trees, picnic tables, etc.. just like any other 5 year old.  He was full of smiles and full of love for his sister and parents.  I felt very fortunate to meet such a determined little boy and a family not willing to let this condition slow them down!

Thank you so much for contacting the Maple Leaf Mission and for allowing us a glimpse into your family life.  I really loved meeting you all 🙂

I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Love Always,
