By the Numbers

This has been a big week of milestones.

Monday marked 12 weeks since we've been home. 12 weeks of living in 4 different hospitals.

Wednesday marked 4 weeks of living in Delaware. 4 weeks since we made a leap of faith and left Arkansas.

Today marks 3 weeks since Samuel's open heart surgery.  3 weeks since we placed Samuel back in God's hands, for the thousandth time, and waited in HOPE.

Today Samuel is 2 months old. 2 months older than many of the doctors ever thought he would be!

Our brave boy is finding his smile!
Confession: I went back and read all of my blog posts yesterday, because I needed encouragement. I needed to remember. I needed to be reminded of how far God has brought us, how many miracles have been performed on Samuel's behalf, all of the ways God has shown Himself to us along this tiring journey.

I was blown away. Again!
So many things I had forgotten. So many little markers from God along the way that I haven't thought about recently. How GOOD and FAITHFUL He has been! I am so thankful that we have those things recorded as continual reminders, so even in the hardest of moments we can look back and say, "Yes, God is good. Yes, God is faithful. He has not forgotten us. He will not forsake us."

We are still praying for Samuel's digestive system to begin working so that he can eat again.
We are still praying for healing and strength for Samuel's lungs as they prepare to be tested.
And we are still praising God for each day if Samuel's life!

This is His story, and it is all for His glory!
