Christopher Anderson Pray for Christopher

Our son has epilepsy and this is his story...

On Friday, June 5, 2020, Christopher Boykin Anderson joined the world at 3:38 AM at 7 lbs and 3 oz. We knew from the getgo that Christopher was special, our sweet miracle baby, for so many many reasons. One week later, on Friday, June 12th, we found out through MRI imaging that the right half of Christopher's brain was underdeveloped, which is why he's been fighting seizures since birth. Christopher was named for a variety of reasons: 1) Because it was the only name my husband, Mike, and I agreed upon and 2) it means bearing the image of Christ. We also named him Boykin after my selfless Christlike grandfather, Richard Boykin Pool. I decided to start this website as a way for non-facebook users to keep up with our son's prayer needs as well as just stay in the loop on how our family is doing.  All around, I wear many hats. I am first and foremost a follower of Jesus. I am also a wife, I've been married to Michael Anderson for five years (since June 28, 2015).  I am also a sister, aunt, friend, teacher, sometimes a writer. I too grew up with epilepsy and know how hard it can be. I was talking with one of my friends at the beginning of this journey. As we were talking, she reminded me that I am not only Christopher's mother, I am his voice and his advocate too; and my pen is the strongest sword I can use to fight his battle and author the words that he cannot speak. SO welcome to his story. A story that is still unfinished and filled with so much hope. I have quite literally seen GOD move mountains in my own life and expect no different for our son. Thank you for visiting Christopher's site, we pray you join his fight, and watch GOD move mountains just one more time. {{Jeremiah 29:10-14}}

*I have also added my mother Susan Wilhelm (Christopher's Lolli), as a coauthor, that you may also get her perspective on how things are going. 

May GOD bless you and keep you always! 

Lots of love, 
the Andersons & the Wilhelms
