If you look back at posts from May of 2007 you will see the anxiousness of a mother as she awaited the arrival of her new son.
Not long after that, you will see the exhaustion of motherhood taking over, as well as the frustration of having a difficult baby.
In November and December of 2007 you will see the uncertainty of a family as we faced a never before heard of diagnosis and the doubt and fears of a major surgery on our sweet six month old.
There are times of joy, or praise, of thanksgiving too.
One of my prayers is that through this blog, you will see our faith. A faith that carried us through the hard, dark, and uncertain times. A faith that made our joy and praise richer than ever. Look past the doubt of this mother, and see the hand of Benjamin's Creator as it moves through our lives.
My other prayer is that this blog would be used as a resource for parents who have children facing the same diagnosis as Benjamin faced. It's scary! Craniosynostosis is a big word that I had never heard of. If you are a parent of a cranio kid, you're not alone! On the sidebar of Benjamin's Blog is his story, as told through this blog. And the best part is that there's a happy ending!
And if you have a cranio kid, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more encouragement. Or just leave a comment, so I know you were here.
This picture was taken today, of my beautiful, blue eyed, cranio kid!! How far God has brought us and I praise Him for how good He has been to us!
Thank you to all our friends and family who have supported and encouraged us on this journey. You mean more to us then we can express!
God is good all the time, all the time, God is good!!!
