Charlie is the one of the biggest and best things that has ever happened to me! “Oh, she is just bias,” you may be thinking. Ok, well…maybe only a tiny bit. 🙂 But, seriously! I cannot even begin to describe the amount of love and joy this little guy can pull out of you….it’s amazing. I LOVE babies….but I never knew I could love one SO much! When I asked he Lord for a little Down Syndrome sibling, I had no idea what kind of package God would send. This journey has brought so much joy, many tears, lots of laughter, patience, perseverance, and ultimately…it has brought us all closer to the Lord. As we continue our journey with Charlie, the Lord constantly reminds me that:
His timing is perfect
His power is made perfect in our weakness
Nothing is to big for God to handle
Never underestimate His LOVE, CAPABILITIES, POWER
And so, with faith, we are asking God for another miracle. God is full of miracles and we know the Lord saved Charlie once, and we are asking Him to do it again! The clock is ticking and time is running out with Charlie’s IV feeds. If Charlie is to live, grow and thrive, his stomach needs heal. The Central line (IV port) is risky and its infections have been the cause of the last few hospitalizations. It has also believed that we are out of central line sites, so another infection could be hazardous. Also, his liver and heart can only bear the IV nutrition for a limited time before becoming destructive to those organs. We have tried many things to help heal Charlie’s stomach, but ultimately he needs a miracle. The Lord has been so good, so faithful, and so powerful in Charlie’s life. HE IS ABLE!
Will you join us in asking the Lord for a miracle? Charlie is the Lord’s and we trust in HIM!
With love and gratitude,
I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
