grateful, thankful and humbled

do you ever wonder why ... sometimes I do.. sometimes I don't.. I am not going to tell you I don't think about why Drew was born with bi-lateral club feet.. and how humbled I feel to be his mom. I often wonder why God would trust us again with a child that is so amazing.. I wonder if I will mess him up ! :O) I wonder why we were chosen to be a family. I wonder why God blesses my family time and time again ... then I feel very grateful, very thankful and I am brought to my knees in awe of the one who knit us in our mothers womb.. who knew us first.

I received a CD of photos of Drew. The first one is dated a few days before Christmas in 2006. We brought Drew home a few days before Christmas in 2008. I am posting him at 3 months old and his club feet. They are precious. They are broken. They are what brought him to us.

Then i am posting a 'today' photo. showing his feet again. The perfect, straight, smelly feet of our son.

God is ... He is .. I am without words to describe the swell in my heart for my son and the God I love. I am without words b/c none can explain the way I feel for the opportunities now available to Drew. I am without words to thank our maker, our healer, our gracious Lord.

I am amazed and full of joy for God giving doctors the expertise in manipulating a limb.. I am grateful to God for it working on Andrew. I am grateful for this little child.

I'm so happy you are doing so well with Drew. He looks so happy as does his mommy. You talk of him just the way I feel about my sweet boy. We miss you on the cop yahoo group try not to be such a stranger.

Oh, my sister, I hear your heart. God is so good. Of course, I wonder why Ellie was born with spina bifida, but I also know that is what brought her to us.
I know that I am one abundantly blessed mama!
Love ya',

All I can say is Amen. God is good. And he chose you because you are Drew's mother...from the beginning of time.
