The child who was accidentally shot in his hand is home for Christmas and on the road to recovery, according to his mother.
“Bradley is happy, healthy and recovering fast. He is the strongest little boy I will ever know in my life and he is everything my heart is outside of my body,” his mother said. “Thank you friends, family, strangers, hospital staff and hand surgeons for their prayers and hard work. I am forever grateful. God has definitely been with us in our time.”
