One of Bei's closest little playmates is our little friend Nicholas, who we affectionately call Nick Nick. He is a train obsessed little boy just like Bei. As long as the two of them have a train to play with, they both are happy happy! Becky and I met at music Monday's and immediately had a connection, we both are stay at home moms, both were in corporate America previously, and both our boys are adopted. Nick is from Russia, but lived close to the China border. When Nick came home they found out that he had no sight in his left eye and that there is cancer in his right eye. He immediately went through a round of chemo. Up until February, Nick had great reports from his monthly exams, but now the cancer is back. So please lift our very sweet little train loving friend up in prayer for healing. I've pasted the following excerpt and address from Nick's caringbridge website if you are interested in following along with their journey.
This CaringBridge site has been created to keep friends and family updated about our son Nicholas. At 14 months of age, he was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, a rare childhood cancer in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the retina. Thank you again for all of your thoughts, cards, prayers and support. We know everyone is sending positive energy to us & Nicholas!
