Rejoicing!


We went to the Doctor today for the littlest superman!
He listened to his heart- no rubbing sounds!
The inflammation is gone ;-)


They took an x-ray. No fluid around his heart!
(We stopped the diuretics last Wednesday.)


He is RUNNING!
And he loves to run!
He didn't love to run...
BUT
He loves to run now!

Can I have an "Amen Jesus"!


He loves to jump!
He never jumped before...

He is starting to climb!
He never climbed before...

Can I have another "Amen Jesus"!

How can it be...
that an orphan from China 
with a severe, life threatening heart condition, 
that wasn't expected to live...

Is now thriving!

It can only be God!

IT. CAN. ONLY. BE. GOD!

He is 3 yrs old and he is...
Running, laughing, jumping, climbing, teasing his big brothers, saying boo to his Momma and Daddy(always trying to scare them), recognizing numbers 1-5, counting to 10 and more, knowing 6 colors, doing 24 piece puzzles, riding a tricycle, drinking all his milk (he is not a milk fan) and speaking English beautifully!
(and so much more)

AND
He has only been home 4 months!

Praise God!

PRAISE GOD!

Thank you, to his foster family and his special needs orphanage!
More than a thank you
 has to go to Israel and the Doctors that operated on him!
More than I thank you
 needs to go to the family that advocated for him and made the surgery... happen!

IF YOU EVER DOUBT THE WORTH OF WHAT YOU DO?

PLEASE DON'T!

JUST LOOK AT the pictures...

You have truly saved his life!

We go back to the Doctor in 3 months.
Then they will see us in a year
and the next year
and the next year
and...
well, you get the picture!

He has a normal life expectancy AND a normal activity level...


OH FATHER
I am on my knees in gratefulness to YOU!
