This story is so inspiring:
Heather and David Britton want everyone to understand a few things about their giggling, bespectacled 3-year-old son, Chase.
“He’s happy. We call him the Little Gremlin. He loves to play tricks on people. He loves to sing. His goal in life is to make people smile,” Heather Britton told AOL News.
“He’s got so much love around him. We’re an extremely happy family. His story is not tragic.”
But to an outsider, the Brittons’ story might seem heartbreaking.
… He has the MRI of a vegetable,’ one of the doctors said to us.”
Chase is not a vegetable, leaving doctors bewildered and experts rethinking what they thought they knew about the human brain.
The witness of the parents is also inspiring:
Her message, she said, is simple: “Don’t give up on your kids.”
“Don’t believe everything the doctors say. Don’t get me wrong. I love doctors. But they can be wrong. … Chase is extremely healthy. And he’s extremely smart — his motor skills just haven’t caught up,” she told AOL News.
“People could view this as a tragic story. But that depends on how you look at life. You can be angry or you can appreciate what you have been given,” she said.
“Chase was meant to be with us.”
Here is Chase in action:
God bless Chase, and God bless all parents who don’t give up on their kids!
