Strength to Care

Lessons from Matthew & Isaac – Our CHARGE Syndrome Journey

Lightning update…the short-term forecast

A quick update for all of you have been praying fervently for us over the last few days. We had the 3-D ultrasound today and it did confirm that our little boy does in fact have a cleft lip and possible palate. It appears to be unilateral (one-sided).

As far as the ears are concerned…we will have to wait until we send the results to out geneticist friends and allow their expert eyes to take a look.

We were able to get some good looks in between his hands AND feet blocking his face!

We have to be honest here and say that our drive home was a little somber. It usually takes a few days to process this kind of news…we know, at least in the short-term, we will be looking at some surgeries to repair the cleft…as far as the rest of the puzzle pieces, we will have to wait and see until he graces us with his presence in late May.

As a family, we covet your past and your continued prayer for us as the pieces are put together and we see a clearer picture.

Please share this news as you feel led…Kevin, Theresa, Hannah, Megan, Matthew and Sarah Anne…and baby boy!

    Praying, praying, praying. Nothing else we can say, except we are in awe of the glory you’re allowing God to shine through this trial. Blessings.

      Thank you Scott and Lisa, the power of prayer is certainly felt. We pray that this will be another “fingerprint” that God will use for His glory.

      Thanks Marty…I am certain that is why we are keeping strong and facing each new trial from a position of strength.

      Just happened to be on-line…thanks Kent. This whole thing has delayed some goals set for this year having to place more time on the family spoke…but, Iove the family time…these kinds of trials always have a way to draw us closer.
