How far we've come!

My sick baby at 6 lbs. after two open heart surgeries

My Happy baby at 10lbs 10oz. after a miracle!!

2 more open heart surgeries to go... The Lord will never leave us nor forsake us! If this doesn't build your faith I don't know what will! I was feeling a little sad this morning about all we have yet to face, when the Lord reminded me how far He has carried us already! Praise the Lord for His gentle reminders when we question how much we can handle... we never have to "handle" it alone! Go and hug someone you love today because no one is promised tomorrow. HE IS MIGHTY TO SAVE, HE IS FAITHFUL, AND HE IS LOVE!

  2. She is beautiful! I came across your blog and this is my first time posting. I couldn't help but notice her scars and think about how most people try to find a way to cover up scars from minor scrapes/surgeries... but her's are a beautiful reminder of God's grace!

  7. I was showing this to my niece Alexis (almost 5) and we had already talked about Ella before and she knew her heart was 'broken'. We saw the picture of Ella in the hospital and she noted the 'red marks' on her chest and we talked about why. Then when I scrolled down and it showed the silly pictures of Ella sticking her tongue out, Alexis said, "Oh, that adorable!!" and kept walking around the room saying it. :)
