    I posted this here instead of the prayer request forum to reach a wider audience. Please keep this little boys in your thoughts and prayers.

    Anthony is 10 years old. Several months ago, he was transferred to the custody of a friend of my mother's as a foster child. He had many problems as a result of the situation that eventually led to him being removed from his mother's care. In the last few months he has blossomed and has been doing very well.

    Tonight he was hit by a car and air lifted to Miami Children's hospital. When I posted on facebook, all we knew was that he was in critical condition. I just received another update. They are taking him for tests to determine if he is brain dead. We should know shortly.

    Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. At this point, doctors are cautiously hopeful. He has major brain injuries and is still critical, but stable.

    Cautiously hopeful is better than no hope.

    I kept checking back last night for updates. Continued prayers

    Dear God,
    Please let little Anthony makes not only a full recovery but also be in a better position than when he first was injured by having him be placed and remain PERMANENTLY in a good home where he can continue to thrive.

    If You know that his mother is not going to be able to be a great caregiver and provider and will bring nothing but harm, anguish and suffering to this poor child, please let this boy remain with people that will care and cherish him as much as You do.

    Amen,

    Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers. I do have another update. As of this afternoon, he is breathing on his own. When he wakes up, he becomes disoriented and angry, ripping out the medical equipment, so they are keeping him heavily sedated. It will be a long road, but the doctors are now throwing around the words "possibility of a full recovery".

    So sorry he's having to be kept sedated - but the rest of this sounds like remarkably good news, considering. Thanks for the update!

    This is wonderful news! I'm glad he was waking up (even if he was scared and angry), and is breathing on his own. Sedating him will let him heal without the panic so that is for the best. More prayers for more improvements.
