Aaron's Baptism

These are pictures of my great nephew, Aaron's, baptism. He was supposed to be baptized on April 19th but before that could happen, he was diagnosed with congenital glaucoma. My niece Amanda found out that he would need emergency surgery on his eyes on April 6th, so his baptism was moved up! It was all very last minute, but it turned out beautifully.
Aaron was baptized with water from Lourdes and his eyes were given a special annoninting.
He didn't even cry a bit!

I am happy to say that Aaron's eyes have improved dramatically since his surgery. He looks amazing and you can tell he can see much better.
