It has been a busy spring
On June 12, 2010 at 7:50 am Chase stepped from this life into the next. He fought a long hard battle but his weakened heart could fight no longer. But as he walked into glory he did not walk alone, unloved or unknown. He was accompanied by all our prayers and a heavenly host. We will miss him, but are glad his battle is done and that he is at rest.
Since our last newsletter we have had seven children adopted and seven new arrivals.
Joshua, Julian, Hannah and Joel are on the road to recovery following surgery. Joel had spina bifida surgery and when we met with the doctors they said his MRI showed he also had a tumor on his spine. But when they did the surgery- the tumor was not there. So he only had to have spina bifida surgery. This is always exciting when a child’s surgery is much easier than expected.
We would like to make special mention of:
Scott's wife Jenny says, "When he first thought about participating in the Janus Charity Challenge, he thought of the physical fight the children must endure for their health, and the emotional strength they display while awaiting a forever family. What better motivation to push him to finish the 12+ hour triathlon? While pushing his body to its limits, he will have much time to think, reflect, and pray. The kids, volunteers, and Foster Home staff will be there with him in spirit every step of the way."
