Indelible Joy

For the past few months I had anticipated the fear and worry that associated receiving “the call” that gave us a diagnosis for little Dash. Last Thursday was that day, but it wasn’t filled with as much sorrow and sadness as I had expected. We have an answer, we have direction, we have hope!

As I was re-reading a few blog posts from this past fall, I ran across this one. It was exactly how we felt then and is exactly how we feel now. Please re-read this post and share in the joy we have for our son, then and now!

More information and “words” will come as time passes. Today, however, remember that Noah has looked at nearly every book he owns, torn all the wipes out of the package, opened and rummaged around the fridge, and ate a bowl of oatmeal giggling about the joy he has in his magical, beautiful life!

Be joyful, be encouraged. We are!

(and please, do re-read this post)

Jeremiah 29:11-13
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days, when you pray, I will listen. If you seek me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”

  1. His heart melting smile, contagious giggle and big bright eyes leave no room for pity or sadness. Little Dash, you amaze me in so many ways and will continue to do so. I love you all so much!
