For Weston

Praying, hoping and all around banking on the best for young Weston Keeton.  The young Tennessee boy has been living up here in Philadelphia for a long time, a couple of years, since he was 4, a third of his life so far, as he waits for a heart transplant at CHOP.  (He’s the 3rd child from the left.)Wes2012-12-23_18-53-47_307

His mom, Julie, has been with him.  Dad, Adam, has been working in Tennessee, but comes up as often as he can.  Siblings are here off and on.  It’s not been easy for the Keetons.  But, it has been especially hard, of course, for Weston.  When I met him back in December, he was able to live for awhile at the Gift of Life House with his family.  He is a happy, beautifully rowdy kid by nature.

Things are getting a little tough for Weston.  Hang in there, buddy.
