I saw the child lying in the street last Sunday, shortly after the accident. The first think I did was pray for the child and his family. I then prayed for the driver. This will stay with them the rest of their life. That is how I was raised. I didn't judge or question. I let our Lord do his thing. I love all these perfect people and parents posting on what should have been done. Well, it didn't. So let's stop judging and pray for all those involved. And drivers, slow down, don't worry about getting through the yellow light and put your phone in the back seat.

He is doing very good. Still in the hospital but not in ICU. He is talking and started eating. He has a long road ahead of him , but considering everything he is a lucky little boy. God was listening to everyone's prayers.
