Forrest is strong and loved and is surrounded by the well wishes and support of many! He was so blessed to spend the past few weeks with his friends from A Place to Be and The Same Sky Project. Their belief in Forrest has warmed our hearts and brightened many of our days.
As we spend one last evening together before entering the doors of Johns Hopkins tomorrow, we are thankful for Forrest's unsinkable determination and his ever present humor. When asked how he felt about the surgery tomorrow, he replied, "It has to happen, so let's just get on with it!" He is ready to tackle this step in his journey with his incredible bravery and spirit.
Tonight, as he does so often, Forrest unknowingly uplifted and encouraged us when he stretched his 6'3" frame out on a small couch, patted Austin's arm and sang out "Don't worry, be haaaaaappy"!
We will update you tomorrow. Thank you for the continued thoughts and prayers.
