REMEMBER what God has done

Our first night in a hopsital bed together
Christian, mommy is so proud of you. It has been one of the most difficult periods of my life, and most likely will have been the hardest year of your little life. And each day I look at you, and I am reminded of the gift God has given us. I will remember that God has something special in store for you. That you will have the ability to reach out to people and to show God’s love in a way that many other people couldn’t. Your birthday gift this year was life, and I am overjoyed that God has given us this day to celebrate together. May God continue to bless you for all the days of your life.

Home at last!

We are very grateful to have been officially discharged from the hospital today. He is continuing to heal well and his spirits are great. Please continue to pray that God will light our path and show Chris and I what (if any) steps we take next in his treatment.

A few people have asked for our address to send Christian a birthday card, or for those of you who want to come and celebrate Christian's birthday on Sunday.

I remember: For your 4th birthday celebration at preschool, your mama made the most creative Cookie Monster cupcakes for you to share with your classmates -They were blue, of course! and YUMMY too! You sported a birthday crown with four candles on and you smiled ear to ear, inside and out -and in your eyes too as your class sang Happy Birthday to YOU! I had only just met you then. And so I just love seeing the posted pictures of you since birth -just how could you have ALWAYS been this adorable!? You, Evelyn and Ryan are such heart melters! And I l am so happy that you are HOME for your Birthday! With your mother and father, sister and brother! Enjoy! And sleep well tonight, coveted by your family and all watching over you. Gentle hugs and so many smiles to you and your family! Mrs. Howe
