Thanks to some pretty darn good advice and some thoughtful prayers, I got to see some of this today.


And this…


And this.


I cant tell you how much I appreciated you sharing your very own heart wrenching experiences.  I am taking everyones advice and making some changes… hoping that its already making a positive difference in little Eddie's life.

I will keep you updated on his progress as well as my own!


Its crazy how I have this public blog and have been allowed to participate in this amazing community, yet was so scared to share how I felt!

Thank you for letting me do that in a safe and welcoming way.

Just in case you are gaga over this little hat just as much as I am… I thought I would share who sent it to me!  The beautiful Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen gifted Eddie with it.  Is she the best or what? 

I highly recommend stopping by her blog and reading every single word she has ever written a few of her posts… guaranteed she will make you smile.  Thanks Kristan!

Share with your friends!

  1. I’ve been a slight bit busy lately so this is the first time I’ve seen your posts about Eddie. I’m so thankful to God for things getting better. It is so hard when they are so small and you just don’t know what is going on, it’s scary and frustrating and overwhelming, all wrapped up in to one. I’m also thankful that you have a community that would wrap their arms around you and give you some great advice along the way. Praise God for His mercies, they are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness. 🙂
    Praying for you, and sweet baby Eddie, now.
