Every Tree

Just an update on our sweet son Caleb. He had his blood taken for his Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) test this week.  We were originally told it will take one week to get the results but found out earlier this week it will be 6 weeks!  He was very brave and made his parents and grandma proud!

Thank you for your prayers.  Our family has been deeply encouraged by all of the prayer support and love coming our way. Please keep praying not only that he doesn't have SMA but that God would strengthen and heal him.  We also pray that God will give his pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, physical therapists, occupational therapist, and nurses wisdom in caring for our son.  Also pray that God would give his Mom and Dad strength and courage.

I love to smile!

Enjoying breakfast!
We believe in our son. We believe we serve an amazing God. The verse below really stuck out to us because a myrtle tree grows slowly but when it matures it is great in size and nothing like the shrub it was when it started. We are praying for healing and growth. Will you please continue to pray? Would you pass our blog along and ask for prayer? We are coming to the Father asking for healing and that Caleb would start to use every muscle. We are praying for BIG things to a BIG God! We need you all so much and please know how much we appreciate you! Caleb's Aunt Jen made this graphic below...please share this graphic as you share our story. We love you!

Picture by Aunt Jen

Cypress trees will grow where now there are briers; 
      myrtle trees will come up in place of thorns. 
   This will be a sign that will last forever, 
      a reminder of what I, the Lord, have done.
                 Isaiah 55:13
