Hearing Update....

Well, our high hopes for Kyalynn were dashed on Thursday morning when we received a call from the Doctor stating she would not be able to help us with figuring out if Kyalynn would be a candidate for the BAHA surgery. :( That's not her specialty. It was so kind of her to call us so we didn't have to make the 1 1/2 hour drive to the hospital. 

However, God was still moving and opening doors!!!
Thank you for your prayers! I have no doubt they prepared the way. 

We were able to contact the surgeon who specializes in this surgery!! How GOD is that?! They are so booked that the soonest appointment we could get is August 31st but if it means our girl may hear for the rest of her life, what's a couple more months of waiting?? How it works is Kyalynn will undergo 1 1/2 hours of testing with an audiologist and then she will meet with the surgeon. The surgeon will do additional testing and then put a trial BAHA on Kyalynn to test to see if it helps her at all. If it does, then we will prepare for a surgery date. I am so darned excited! I am fervently praying that this will be successful for Kyalynn but if not, that God would show us the next road to journey down. I know He will. He's so good at that! LOL! 

I have told Kyalynn in rudimentary terms that we will be going to the doctors and maybe they can help her hearing. Of course, this is the same girl that gets excited to go to the doctors so she is already asking me (over and over and get the idea. LOL!)  when she goes to the drs. Goodness, 3 months is a looooonnnnngggg time to field this one. LOL!!

Thanking God for His perfect plan for Kyalynn and each of our lives!!

I pray this precious one will have perfect hearing in Jesus' Name.

I'm believing doors will continue to open for this sweet girl.

Bless you!

I was SO disappointed when I read the first sentence, and so thrilled when I read on! I will keep praying!

We thought that E wasn't able to hear when we first adopted him. He has several siblings who are hearing impaired and he failed his first few hearing tests. After a few years of tests, we were told that his hearing is fine! We had a good outcome but I know the feeling of being willing to wait and do anything to help a child hear!

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 

She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us sometimes that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
