faith leapers



He sat by himself for 2 minutes!  We were all cheering him on and he looked at us like, "what is all the fuss about??"  He also is getting so much stronger and bearing more weight as he is trying to crawl.  He needs to get his hands more open in order to better bear weight, but once again we were brought to tears at the work being done in his brain to allow these new skills.

Hill and Wick were cracking him up by throwing balls and knocking over Elmo, Avery was filming, Issy was being silly, Susan was sitting there getting my wee one to work hard, and I was standing in awe, thanking the Lord for His sweet provision of Abe.  I am so humbled that I get to parent this child, that my kids get to learn daily from their baby brother and that we get to participate in the Lord's great work in his life.  We are blessed!

Thank you for standing in the gap for us, and for being committed to Abe!  He is working really hard to make you proud. :)

That's awesome! I am not sure that Sabrina stands much longer than that and she is almost two! Her legs are so weak and we are still working on walking. I also noticed that Abe opens his hands when he is playing, so I am sure it is just a matter of time!! God is so good.

Dear A Family,

I am so very thankful to the Lord for his loving kindness in regard to Abe and his progress, and the adoption of another family member.
II Cor 1:3-4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted by God.
In Him,
Lenora
