Stoyan has been a part of the Schuster familly for six years. He was adopted from Yambol, Bulgaria. He has had many hardships in his short life. When Stoyan was seven years old he was diagnosed with epilepsy. He would have two to three seizures a day and would end up in an ambulance more times than a seven year old should. When Stoyan was ten he was diagnosed with autism. He often has a hard time communicating with others and struggles to focus.
On April 4th, Stoyan will be having a ten hour procedure called a corpus callosotomy. They will cut into his skull and sever the corpus callosum—the part of the brain that connects the right and left hemispheres. Stoyan will be in the ICU after the surgery and then be moved to another part of the hospital for rehab.
Stoyan has been so brave and strong, stronger than anyone else in his family. He has a biggest heart that somehow has not yet burst from his chest. We want to thank you all for the support and prayers. This website will be used to update you all on what is going on during this time.
James 1:2-3. Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
