Okay, I feel like this is my right of passage.
It's time for my first video montage!
Everybody loves a montage, right?
This is the very first one I've ever made and I feel really nervous exposing it. I know that sounds funny but I feel like it's my heart right here for everyone to see. Yes, I know, I've been exposing everything since my very first blog post. But this is different.
A few things...
The montage chronicles Christian's life since he was born. I thought it was important that everyone know him from the beginning. Many people who follow Christian's Journey only know him from the time of the accident. So I want everyone to know him from before the accident, as well as who he is today.
It's also important for everyone to see not only pre-accident, but how far he's come from just after the accident. I'll warn you now that there are pictures that may be difficult to look at from when he was in the PICU. But they're part of Christian's story so I thought it was important that everyone see just how far he's come.
I thought this would be a painful right of passage, but I was sorely mistaken. I'm really proud of this video because I'm proud of the people in the video. When I watched it for the first time, I felt proud, happy, and hopeful. And every time I watch the video I have a big smile on my face at the end.
It's long! It's my first video so I had a hard time scaling down the pictures and videos. So if you can spare ten minutes (yes, ten minutes!), you'll have the opportunity to get fully acquainted with one of the loves of my life - my beautiful boy - Christian.
