GREAT NEWS!!!


WITT WAS ABLE TO NURSE!!!
WITT WAS ABLE TO NURSE!!!
He will get a bottle next feeding so they can keep a good handle on his intake. Mel is checking to see if he would be able to nurse again at 9:00pm.
In the words of Grandbud, "HALLELUJAH!!!"

Every day, I can hardly wait to get home from work to see what has happened during the day. All through the day, I am thinking about WItt and our family and trusting God, Whose plans are perfect! What a glorious day! What glorious gifts from God! I think this precious baby has brought us all closer to our Lord. I agree with Evan--Witt is perfect. In fact, we all are created in God's image and likeness! Oh happy days!!!!!

Praise the Lord!!!!!! I was off work yesterday and had been planning on coming up and spending some time with Mel and Witt, but I have been fighting a cold so I figured you didn't need my germs up there. I would love to come and see the beautiful new family when I can, though! :)

Tears of Joy for Little Witt. Such a hard struggle, but such good and faithful servants, not only praising God, but taking the opportunity to learn how to be a better person by watching the miracle of Witt. God Bless you all!

Awesome news!!!!!!!!! God is so good, he wastes nothing. He has shone so brightly through little Witt and people ARE seeing his grace.

I am but a bystander on your journey but praying and praising God all the way. It is so wonderful that Mel is able to breastfeed little Witt what an incredible bond for Mom and baby. He seems to be picking up the eating skills with great ease. I hope this moves your family ever closer to going home!!

As I read I am amazed at the strength of your extened family for your new special little boy. God has indeed touched his life.

Thank you for your witness to God's love!
