Before and After


The doctors took Michael's stitches out today and with the tape gone from his nose, the change in his appearance is more evident. He is doing great and we are just thrilled with his progress.

The trips up and back have been uneventful. Poor Mickey... he had to endure Michael and I sleeping, but I am sure that it might have been an improvement over us talking his ear off for 2 hours straight each way!

As I put together these pictures of Micheal I couldn't help but think about God's plan for our little guy.... "I know the plans I have for you!" declares the Lord. God knew even before Michael was born that he would be our son... he knew that we would do all that we could to help Michael achieve his full potential. And he knows what lies ahead for this little life placed in our care. Awesome to think about isn't it?

"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." What a promise... one that you can literally see in Michael's life... and in ours....

WOW! What a difference! The life Michael will have now compared to what would have happened if you didn't adopt him - amazing! Definately God's plan unfolding!
