BIG SISSY TIME!

This online memorial was created in loving memory of my son, Joshua-Sean Dale Whidby, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Joshua's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Joshua forever.

He was a victim of SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME..(he was shaken by one of his biological parents before I adopted him) HE WILL FOREVER BE  IN MY HEART!

When I first got him IN January 2008.. they gave me little hope that he would live very long ,and tried to get me to put him away or take him home and let him die.. I COULDNT DO IT, HE WAS A BABY HE DESERVED EVERY CHANCE AND ALL THE LOVE NO MATTER HOW LONG HE HAD (IN HIS CASE NOT LONG AT ALL,BUT HE LIVED 2 YRS N 5 MONTHS & 2 DAYS  LONGER THAN ANY OF THE DRS GAVE HIM TO LIVE).. I AM A MOTHER FIRST N FOREMOST WITH A HEART FOR CHILDREN.. GOD BLESS THE CHILDREN WITHOUT A VOICE!(CHILDREN WITH SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME & THOSE WHO LOVE THEM!)

HE SUFFERED DAILY FROM MASSIVE SEIZURES AND ON 5 MEDICATIONS (strong enough to lay an adult out!)

He was blind,wheelchair bond,Cerebral Palsy(caused from the brain damage from when what happened happened when his bios had him)

He was completely G-Tube feed(tube inserted into his stomach cause he couldnt eat by mouth,paralysis in the right side n couldnt feel the food, and couldnt swallow)

He had little control over his body but he could clap his hands and touch our faces and tell who we were and when we walked into the room he knew by smell who was there and would say,"mama or K-K,or Naah-Nuh or Daah-DUH,or Gran-da-da,or Bubba".......

HE WAS THE BEST GIFT GOD HAS EVER GAVE ME NEXT TO SALVATION AND MY OTHER 5 KIDS!

THIS PICTURE IS OF HIM N HIS BIG SISTER MAY 10,2010

He passed away at home in OUR arms(COMPLICATIONS DUE TO SHAKEN BABY SYNDROME (I ADOPTED HIM & WAS HIS MAMA FOR 2 YRS 5 MONTHS AND 2 DAYS & ALWAYS WILL BE HIS MAMA !)... Love u big BOY! ALWAYS IN MY HEART,MAMA

I remember your bare feet down the hallway I remember your little laugh Race cars on the kitchen floor, plastic dinosaurs I love you to the moon and back I remember your blue eyes looking into mine Like we had our own secret club I remember you dancing before bed time Then jumping on me, waking me up I can still feel you hold my hand, little man And even the moment I knew You fought it hard like an army guy Remember I leaned in and whispered to you Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here You were my best two and half years I remember the drive home When the blind hope turned to crying and screaming "Why?" Flowers pile up in the worst way, no one knows what to say About a beautiful boy who died And it's about to be halloween You could be anything you wanted if you were still here I remember the last day when I kissed your face I whispered in your ear Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here Out of this curtain room and this hospital grey, we'll just disappear Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here You were my best two and half years What if I'm standing in your closet trying to talk to you? What if I kept the hand-me-downs you won't grow into? And what if I really thought some miracle would see us through? What if the miracle was even getting one moment with you? Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here You were my best two and half years I remember your bare feet down the hallway I love you to the moon and back

 

MY LIL ANGEL NOW WATCHES OVER US ALL
