Musings of a Marfan Mom

Alpha Phi Omega Alumni Event


Last weekend my college service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, had our chapter’s annual alumni event. I decided to bring M with me. We made art kits for kids at the local children’s hospital (where most of J’s specialists are from) and M got to help decorate the covers of some of the journals we included. He also enjoyed eating the pizza, participating in a Harlem Shake video, and running around in circles.

Towards the end, I left him with one of the “actives” (college students) so I could run to the bathroom. This is what I came back to.

Please tell me I’m not the only mom who gets a little teary when someone is this nice to her child?

  1. You are not. I got teary eyed just looking through those photos. That is pretty brilliant!


  2. You are not the only one! I teared up a little looking at these photos…imagining myself in a similar situation with Daniel (headphones and all!). Love this. <3
