God does not lead us places that he doesn't intend to carry us thru.
Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you
2 Chronicles 20:17
Today's church service was a blessing in many ways. Today Sam was healthy and ready to go to church. Last week, he was SO sick. We are thankful that his flu has passed. He is napping right now and has had a good day. Friends of ours from church dedicated their son to the Lord today. His name is Elisha Drew, he was a rare muscular disease and the outlook if fairly grim. Their testimony was strong, and they played a song that was very good. It spoke of the children being in God's hands - we must have faith in Him.
We also celebrated Andre today. He is the son of Val and Greg - Dan's cousins. He has SCIDS which affects his immune system. We are close to Val and Greg and Andre is special to us. He is always so glad to see Sam. They have been called to go to Maryland to do and experimental treatment known as Gene Therapy for Andre. This is the best shot for Andre to have a normal immune system. It will be about a 6 month stay. We will miss them a lot. I encouraged Val to set up a site like this for us all the keep in contact.
Both of these families have a lot of important medical decisions to make for their children. It is amazing though, their testimonies reminded us to embrace God. He will carry us through these decisions. Hence, we know that God did not bring us so far in this adoption process to abandon our 2nd chosen child - we will carry on with God's strength.
Prayer and Blessings go out to Elisha and Andre.
