A piece of my heart


So, I really didn’t know if I would do any more updates but today I just feel compelled to put a piece of my heart out here.  So bear with me...

Caleb is doing really good.  From a lung perspective you would have no idea he had such a tough couple weeks.  He is battling reflux now which is not fun but we will make it through.  He is growing and gaining personality.  We do a weight check on Monday but we know he is over 9 lb. 

I am disappointed in myself and embarrassed and really need to apologize to the many people that I need to send thank you cards to.  I am very behind after getting sick myself and I just feel terrible that I don’t have it done.  Please know we are so very appreciative of your gifts and I will catch up!

Today we had a homestudy visit to get toward finalizing our adoption.  As we talked to our case worker she asked if we had really processed everything we had gone through.  Yes...and no...I can tell you this.  God carried us...a lot.  When I look back I only see one set of footprints.  If you know the song “Jesus take the wheel...”....yes!  We were on autopilot being carried.  We trust God.  No matter what.  And to you our prayer warriors...the prayers and love lifted us so much.  Again...we thank you!

    Thank you notes are so formal. Truly I feel if someone that knows you and your family they know your hearts and how thankful you are. Dont sweat about that. Jesus did take the wheel and thank goodness you know Jesus. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
