He's my 12 year old grand son and is showing great strength to have survived all he's gone through. Maybe you've read about some of his trauma in my blog, but being severely abused by an ex-man (pedophile) in his life, watching his baby brother's agonizing death, and wondering if his other brother and sister would die, as well as his mom, my daughter, has all left his small heart guarded and scarred. He also wrote about the death of his brother, Isaiah, and of his confusion between death and sleep.
He's an insightful young man and very passionate about his feelings. He doesn't post often but his posts are truly from his heart. He could use the encouragement and he loves comments. He's formed a very special bond to one of my readers, and friend, Middle Child from Living in Pleasantville. She's been a wonderful encouragement to him and really lifts his spirits.
One of his latest posts was about the memories he has of my late mother, his Nanny. He brought her back to me and had me in tears.
He loves the medical field and wants to be a pediatric surgeon. He has a great thirst for knowledge and is always trying to cook up some ancient Chinese home remedy when he's at my house. I even bought him an arm, a life sized arm, from a medical student supply so he could practice his suturing skills. The kid amazes me. He once told me, "Nana if you ever need it, don't worry, I could intubate you." I told him, "Uh, I'm good. Just call 911."
His blog is called "House Of Monkies."
Please consider visiting him and maybe help raise his readership. You would be helping to heal the scars of the past and give him a renewed sense of self esteem.
I would greatly appreciate it. Love Diva.
