Brighton's 2nd Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to a very special celebration for a very special little boy. Brighton is very near and dear to my heart as I have known him since the very beginning as his Mom & I have been close friends for 10 years. Brighton is a sweet little boy who has had a rough start to his life. The doctors believe Brighton has a rare metabollic disease called mitochondrial disease.
Mitochondrial disease is an energy depleting disease. You can read more about Mitochondrial disease at Http:// or
