I meant to write this post yesterday but never got a chance to sit at the computer. So one year ago (yesterday, October 30th) this face literally made my knees buckle. If I had not been holding onto his crib rails or if the room wasn't filled with doctors and nurses I believe I would have fell to my knees that's what I felt like. It was one of the most intense and memorable moments in our sweet babies life. This was the day, at just over 5 months old, Josiah got his trach and his g-tube and so it was the very first time we ever saw his entire face. No tape, no tubes, just his precious face. The feeling I had in that moment was so intense. I am so grateful for that moment. From that day on we were able to hold Josiah whenever we wanted to and it was the day that gave us the hope for being able to bring him home. I will always treasure October 30th and the sight of that beautiful face. I love this boy so much. He is still such a huge part of our daily lives and our family. Today actually, Hazyl's class at church wrote letters asking Pastor Darrick questions they wanted answered. Her question to him was, "Does God take care of babies in Heaven?" When she told me her question she added, "because I want to know if He is taking care of Josiah." What a precious question she has about God. Not a day goes by when our precious son is talked about between the four of us at least. We love him and we love God because of what He is doing in our family through Josiah.

    Anonymous Wow...another moment that just takes one's breath away. Actually,two--I remember seeing Rudy for the first time with the trach in so I know what you're talking about. And Hazyl's precious. The way you have journeyed is impacting your kids. So many lessons we wish they never had to experience, but the glimpses we get of their character and concern are remarkable.

    Bless you all,
