Two Very Happy People Leaving the Hospital WITH Their Baby!!!

Look who is no longer in the hospital!!!! Our God is still in the miracle working business!!! Praise His Holy name!!!!

The Burk family was released to go to the Ronald McDonald house for a trial “at home” run. On Monday Ella has a doctors appointment at which time they will make further decisions about them returning to Oklahoma. We are so excited about the possibility about the family coming home but we know there are going to be many many new things to learn along this new part of the journey. There is a 10% mortality rate of these heart babies between the first and second surgeries who get a secondary illness and their bodies can’t fight back. Regardless of the new restrictions that will be in place for Ella’s safety we are so grateful to even have her on this journey.

Many of you have been patiently waiting for details about the fundraiser walk/run for Amy, Jon and Ella. So here is the scoop:

“Worth it All” Beneļ¬t Run for Ella Dawn Burk
daughter of Jon and Amy Burk of Immanuel Baptist Church
October 10th, 2010 at Shawnee Airport Track
1 mile/5k/10k Run/Walk your choice, all ages welcome
1:00 pm Registration, 2:00 pm start

I’m sure many of you have spirits that are willing but your flesh is weak. I understand your plight. Come support us by just being there cheering on those who are running. It is for the whole family and is going to be lots of fun! Look into that cute face, into those adorable eyes. Ok, now make your decision. :)
So are you going to join in the walk/run? Great! Click HERE to fill out the registration form and send it in. You can also just purchase a t-shirt through filling out the registration page as if you were running but on bottom of the form write "shirt only" so we will be able to keep a count of how many runners we will have on the track.

Thank you again for all of your continued love, prayers, and support!

For Amy and Jon,
Aunt Rachael
