"Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the LORD has been good to you." Psalm 116:7
I wanted to share with you that Alex was able to get out of the house for a little while today. It has been about 3 months since he has been able to do this. Ian called him and wanted him to go and see his new apt. and spend some time with Alex got ready and went! That was about an hour ago. I bet you have never praised God that your child could leave the house, have you? Well, in our situation, this is a blessing and I thank God for it!

Through out the journey we have been on with our sons, one thing we have learned for sure...that is to be as thankful for the small miracles God performs each day in our lives as we are for those major ones!

Adam went over, too. So, they are all together...being brothers...just like they should be...God is good!
"But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise You more and more!" Psalm71:14

I'm so thankful! What a blessing and it will do him good just to be with his brothers doing "guy" stuff. Continuing to pray for him!

That's great news. I hope he continues to feel well enough to get out.

Tonja, not sure how I got here but I just read all of the posts about your boys' stories. I am praising God with you that al the brothers are together and that Alex could get out of the house. I have been basically house-bound for a year (not comparing our situations at all) so I understand the joy in the little things of being able to get out. I will be back. You are truly an inspiration!

I am rejoicing with you and for Alex...this is a great day! I know the boys will have their fun as it should be...and I know you are doing the happy dance!! I will continue to ask God for relief with Alex's daily pain.
