But God....!

I will let you all in on a little secret...
in our home - these are our two favorite words.

We quote them often - reminding each other that God shows up
when everyone and everything around us seems to have given up.

That, my dear friends, has been the cause of my elongated absence.

The "but God" of this season is our greatest gift 
and our greatest challenge.

Meet Abigail Grace!

Doctors once held her life in their hands...
they decided *twice* that they were going to turn off her life support 

moved on the hearts of those involved in her care to keep trying.

Doctors declared that there was so much neurological damage that she would 
NEVER breathe on her own...

declares He is the author of each of our breaths and intervened!

Doctors said she was going to be blind...

makes the blind to see and this precious one was given sight!

The audiologist said that although she had "functional hearing" she would NEVER 
be able to speak because of the neuro damage...

opened up her understanding and this precious one can say
"hi!", "uh-oh!", "more", "all done" and more

(and by the way she can sing the WHOLE song to "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and more!

The speech therapists told us that children with her condition rarely are able to ever eat orally and she would have her g-tube her whole life...

always has the final say - 
and our precious treasure is now EATING baby food 2-3 times a day!

 So - to all of you that may think something may NEVER happen....

just remember our two favorite words....
