Witt turned 18 months old today...a year and a half!!!!! He is doing well being at home with Melanie and Austan. They are still moving in and adjusting to being out of the hospital. It is wonderful for them to be in their own home but there are some changes to adjust to! I am even having to get used to an empty home! I am grateful that one thing left behind is the scripture on my wall in my living room which had become Melanie's and Austan's bedroom...

The LORD is my Strength and my Song;
He has become my Salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise Him,
my father's and I will exalt Him.

The LORD is a warrior;
The LORD is His name.

Exodus 15:2-3
Please pray for all of us as we adapt to these wonderful changes. Please pray for Melanie and Austan as they continue being parents in ways most of us will never experience...ways that are far from what most parents would expect!!!

This picture of Mel and Witt is PRICELESS!!!

Enjoy each day as you transition into 'home'...
