Our Little Miracle

We have spent the last 3 weeks at the Hemby's Children Hospital with our son Seth Ryan. Seth became sick with a fever 3 weeks ago he was admitted into the hospital and diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis which is a very serious illness. It is a Life or death matter for the first 48 hrs which thank God he survived. Not only did Seth survive he survived with no complications and no serious side effects from the meningitis this could have been a very devastating illness. Seth was in the PICU for a week and half on a ventilator. We would like to give God all the Glory and Praise for Seth's total and complete healing. Our doctor at the hospital is truly amazing and God used him to save Seth's life. We are so Thankful today to now be home with a completely healthy baby boy!! God has been so Good to our family. Thank you God for choosing to give Seth Life.

What have we been doing?

Enjoying our summer!! We have been staying up late, sleeping in and loving it... It's so nice to take a break from homework and schedules. We have gone to the movies twice so far one of my favorite things to do in the summer when it's so HOT outside. We have been going to the water park, Carowinds and really just making the most of our summer. Last weekend Brian's brother Dwayne and family came in for the weekend. We don't get to see them very often so it was so nice and we had such a GREAT time with them just wish it could have been longer... I'm really praying before summer break is over that we here something about the adoption. Please join in prayer with our family that we will here something soon!!! I know God's timing is perfect and His plans are PERFECT and I trust in Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6

As I wait for my son to arrive, I am having to learn to Trust in the Lord now more than ever. I can't try to figure things out. In the adoption process you just have to jump in with blind Faith and Trust God!!!

A Relationship of Trust...

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

Why does waiting have to be so hard?

"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."
Psalm 27:14

I know that the Lord has the perfect time to bring home our son, but the waiting part is not always so easy.I have to remind myself that God is never a day late he is always on time!! I dream every day of what that day will be like when we do bring home our son. I get so excited just thinking about how awesome that day will be!!
