Long time I know.
I feel like I’ve let you all down. You were there for us at a very difficult time. There were times that we felt like we were going through the fires of hell itself, and I could always count on someone leaving a comment that would make our day.
But there came a time when we were being bombarded by everything that was going on in our life and we just began to crave a little more privacy. I’ve tried to be transparent as possible but there are a lot of details that I could not include here for legal reasons. I have been working on a book that I hope to finish within the year. The book will share a lot of the other details of our journey raising Mandy and dealing with other issues. I’ll share more about this as we get closer to the launch date.
That being said,
I am going to publish a new post on Mandy’s story at least once a month to catch you guys up. I will publish more often as things come up.
Mandy is doing amazingly well. She is growing by leaps and bounds. She is 54 pounds at her last Dr’s appointment. We thank God for what he is doing in her life. She is truly a gift.
We have moved to New Mexico and have enrolled Mandy in the School for the Blind here. She is doing so well there. We are so happy that we made the transition, even though it was difficult with all the paperwork and Medical Statements we had to get to make it happen. She was out of school for almost a month trying to get everything processed.
But that’s all behind us now…..
She has continued to develop her musical talent and can play about 20 songs or so. Its kind of cool on the weekend we wake up to her playing a new song on her keyboard. We fully intend to get her lessons, but just have not found the right person yet.
We are making some progress on her feeding. She has been cleared to eat double nectar thick foods now and the school is working on it every day. I have no doubt that she will be eating solid foods in the not-to distant future.
Thanks for all the prayers and support. We could not have come to this point without them.
We serve a Great God, an Awesome God and Please don’t forget it. He will bring you through your circumstances regardless of how hard they are. Believe me I know first-hand

Proverbs 3:4-6 (ESV)
So you will find favor and good success[a]
in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
