What am I doing? I actually got Elijah to bed earlier this evening, so I should really be sleeping too. That's exactly what I'm going to do now, so this update is simply to let you all know that we are doing well. Nothing exciting is happening; we’re just living and laughing. Hope you’re all well too. :)
This is a story of overcoming the odds, putting trust in God, and the miracle of prayer. Our son, Elijah, was born in August of 2007. As a result of the oxygen deprivation that occured during his birth he spent his first three (agonizing) weeks in the hospital. When he was seven days old, we were told that Elijah had "severe brain damage" on both sides of his brain. At that moment we entered Elijahland and we've been here ever since. We're learning to live with the diagnoses Elijah has started to accumulate, but mostly we're grateful that God chose us to be his parents. It is truly a privilege to live in Elijahland with our handsome boy. Thanks for visiting.
