Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Oh my, I typed this and it wouldn't publish, so here it goes again.

I am anxious, as you might imagine, that I haven't yet heard from Ellie's doctor. I called her care coordinator this morning, to see if she would contact the dr for me. The care coordinator is out today.

So, here I wait. Please say a few extra prayers for Ellie and for her mama.

I must confess, though, I've let Ellie stay out of her brace every night for a few minutes following bath time. She can crawl really well. She stands on some, oh so wobbly legs. Those muscles seem to have forgotten how to hold her up, so I know it will take time to build up that strength again. I've even let her take a few step while holdling my hands. She is moving her feet, to take steps, bending her knees, but she does not have the strenght yet to really take any steps alone.

Thank you for your prayers. She is so ready to try walking again. I am so ready for her to get moving!!!!!!!!!

Blessings on this Friday,
