Nora – 74 Days Old

I feel that gradually I’m getting back in to a better place, once again placing my trust fully in God. I am limited in my human capacity to what I can and can’t do. This relinguish of control I think I have on things is eerily reminiscent of when we received the diagnosis of trisomy 18. It took me about three days to dislodge the knife out of my heart and just TRUST that God had something great in store. AND DIDN’T HE???????

The fear and uncertainty continues to knock me down on occasion, but at least it is coming in waves now instead of being thrust on me like a fire hose. When these waves come, I literally cry out to Jesus. Usually I feel the pain of the uncertainty ebb away within a few minutes. I’m able to take a breath of air and cling onto my faith, ready for the next crash. I noticed my phone was accidentally connected with a number listed as “Telemarketer” during one of these such moments. I suppose they figured out that it was a bad time to call!! (?)

Daddy and Nora went for a long walk this evening!

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
(Psalm 107:6 NIV)

  1. I missed your post about Nora’s appointment until today. Sending prayers of healing for sweet baby Nora and her heart and lungs, and for comfort and peace along the way for you guys, as well as joy in all circumstances. Isn’t that a tough one? Something I am not good at all. I seem to quickly lose sight of the joy and goodness God has for me. ~Kristin Wooten

    ps. I love the baby sanctuary that your family room has become. It looks like a cozy place to hang out!

  2. I love you guys. I really do, even though I’ve never met you. I am praying.

    I don’t know exactly what you’re going through but I do know what those desperate cries to Jesus and grasping for the slightest touch of His robe with every last bit if your might feels like. And I also know this….He is close to the broken hearted, and He will answer. Some how and some way, He will answer.

    But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

  3. IT SEEMS LIKE I HAVE NOT BEEN IN TOUCH WITH YOUR FAMILY FOR WEEKS, AND I REALIZE NOW THAT I HAD ONLY MISSED 2 BLOGS, BECAUSE OF THE ELECTRICITY BEING OUT. I LOVE THE PICTURES TODAY. THANK YOU WILLIAM FOR THE BEAUTIFUL ONE OF MORNING CUDDLES. I AM SO GLAD YOUR MOM AND SISTER CAME TO VISIT YOU. THAT ALWAYS HELPS TO COPE. I LOVE THE PICTURE OF NORA WHERE HER LITTLE HAND IS SAYING I LOVE YOU HAWAIIAN STYLE. NORA GETS MORE AND MORE BEAUTIFUL EACH AND EVERY DAY. I FEEL SO BLESSED THAT I CAN READ YOUR BLOGS EACH DAY AND KEEP IN TOUCH WITH SUCH A WONDERFUL FAMILY. I HOPE SOME DAY TO BE ABLE TO MEET LITTLE NORA AND HER WONDERFUL FAMILY. HAVE A FANTASTIC DAY. LOVE AND PRAYERS TO EACH OF YOU. GOD BLESS!!!!
