Book Progress and Alexander

I am happy to announce that I have finished with the first round of line editing the entire first rough draft of The Heart of a Father. Dad has finished the second round of editing on the first two-thirds of the book! And Sue is right on top of things. She has already completed most of the interior design work on that first two-thirds of the book.

Although the progress on the book is quite exciting to see, something else very exciting has been happening in my life.

My son, Alexander, is the reason Baby Hearts Press exists. Alexander was born in 1994 with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and it was not expected he would survive his first surgery, but he beat the odds. Then he beat the odds by surviving the Fontan surgery. Then again when he reached age five.

Now Alexander has beat the odds once again. His robotic team has made it all the way to the international competition! This is Alex's sixth year to compete, but first year to make it to the FLL World Festival.

Our team needs your support. To read more about the team, please visit our website: http://www.centexacademy.com

Our heart children are amazing. Some of them not only survive against amazing odds, some of them go on to accomplish great things. You'll read about that on our robotics website. You'll read about that in The Heart of a Father. What is amazing to me is having the chance to witness this greatness firsthand. If you want to be a part of the support for Alexander's robotics team, please visit our website and give a donation. No donation is too small. If you want to sponsor the team, we'll put your organization or company's logo on our new shirts.

Thank you for your time and consideration. As my friends Greg and Rikki would say, "Always Believe!"
