God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Summer's End

School has begun! Wedged in with doctor's visits and medical tests, we have started our school year this week. This has been a bit trickier, since there are more lessons to juggle and more girls to care for. Our biggest challenge has been medical details. In the last two weeks, we've had two MRI 's, EEG, growth hormone stimulation test, exploratory eye procedure, tubes in ears, tonsils removed, ear infection, fingernail infection, physical therapy, endocrinology appointment,  ENT appointment. The great news is that the results back so far are all good! Don't need to go back to endocrinology , Enya's feeling much better almost two weeks after tubes for ears, and tonsils removed, antibiotics are working, and the big news is that Eva's pressure is good in her eyes and her optic nerve looks good-thank you Lord! As unbelievable as it seems, the girls have all maintained an incredible attitude , and haven't complained through it all. It never ceases to amaze me. Most of the appointments are an hour's drive from home. Not one bit of whining. We could have looked the world over, and not found kids so easy going about whatever comes their way. As I write, I am waiting for Eliza to come out of sedation. She just finished having her MRI. Lili came with us, and has just kept herself occupied in the room for the last 3 hours. Amazing Girl's!!!

A little girl waiting-True

I have a friend who is advocating for a little girl with scoliosis. I can tell you that scoliosis is a vey manageable 'special need'. Xiaoyun 's scoliosis is considered a severe case, yet it doesn't slow her down. She's your typical teenage girl. Yes, she will always be petite, will deal with lung restriction, and need to find a car (one day!) that accommodates her tiny stature, but for us, it's been no big deal. The surgeries were rough, but she kept a great attitude. Please take a minute and read about 10 year old True! Below is a link to Annie's site and information on True. I'd be glad to speak with anyone who wants to know about our experience with scoliosis.
