Boston

June 29th. Malachi will be having his brain surgery on June 29. Yikes. It's really happening, it no longer seems surreal. 

Now what? 

We pray and we never cease praying. I'm terrified, worried, confused, stressed, excited and full of anticipation. This surgery is life or death for Malachi. If it is successful? He should lead a life stroke free. If it is not successful? He will continue to have strokes that will eventually end his life. It's to much to think about. Why Malachi? It's not fair. Why us? 

Silly me, I know the answer. God chose us to teach us and to mold us to be more like Him. We are learning and growing in the midst of our pain. We know that we are not in control and there is absolutely nothing we can do...but pray. And pray we will, and pray you will. Together we will give God all the glory and praise Him for providing time and time again. 

Boston...here we come, ready or not.

Our family is PRAYING for you. My son (now 4 1/2) had neurosurgery at 3 months, and although nothing quite as terrifying as you're faced with, I learned to trust the Lord with all of my heart. I will be praying that he's able to beat this, and that he will be restored to good health. I'll be following your blog for updates.

Hugs,

Liz

I'm praying for your sweet boy! What a special family you have. So amazing to bring these two very special gifts from God into your family to love. How blessed you are, how blessed they are. May God hold you and comfort you during these next weeks as you prepare for your son's surgery.

Just found you through the blog frog. My family is a foster family and my two little brothers (now ages 8 and 9) were adopted through the foster care system.

I'm so, so, sorry you are dealing with this, and I can't even begin to imagine what you're feeling. I will be praying for your sweet little boy!

Praying that you have peace during this time leading up to his surgery. I love Boston, it couldn't be at a better hospital!
