Life as a special needs mom is really freaking hard, but it’s also equally BEAUTIFUL,THRILLING and MAGNIFICANT, because two years ago, I wouldn’t have found so much joy in all these little things that are all actually big things if we take a closer look. I would have missed the opportunity to be so grateful, so moved by the mundane.
The littlest moments have brought us so much joy, because when you throw “normal” out the door, you really get to see the beauty of life.
These past few weeks have been another test for us, and I think it’s another one we have crushed.
The Lord doesn’t seem to ever forget about us, and that’s just the feeling we cling to.
Thank you all who love us and support us! I usually don’t always have the right words to say, but you keep us going. Love is the fuel we need to conquer tough times. Grace is the ultimate feeling in all of it.
We love you and I just wanted to let you know, NOTHING, I MEAN NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE, YOU JUST GOTTA BELIEVE.

Special Note from the Editor:
Our Grandson Levi Zachary spent three weeks in Florida recently, with his Dad and Mom, undergoing two surgeries to straighten out his hands and wrists. Having been born 22 months ago with TAR Syndrome, leaving him with no forearms and twisted hands, among other things, we are grateful for the wisdom and expertise the Living God has given Dr. Paley, an Israeli surgeon.

What a joy it is to have your children grow in the love of the Lord and then reach that place where they too become an encouragement to others, sharing His love for people.
