Sitting in the waiting room at Children's Hospital and who walks in?
A classmate and old friend that I haven't seen in 20 years.
A welcome yet unexpected blessing on Jakobe's Journey!
Great seeing you Mitch Thomason!
After an appointment, the Pour House in Siren, WI was the perfect place for an early dinner with the loves of my life!
Heidi Johnson's and my heart are full....now our tummies and Jakobe's!
Every Christmas following her birth, Heidi Johnson received a dated ornament from her parents highlighting a significant event within that year. Since the passing of her parent(s) in 1999 & 2005, I have been honored to carry on the tradition for her. This year, it is our privilege to extend the family tradition to the next generation.
Jakobe received a dated 'mobile' ornament. The mobile brought comfort to our Jakobe during his 7 month stay in the hospital and assisted with the transition into his forever home.
Heidi received a dated 'mom' ornament; affirming her new title and role and signifying a lifelong dream that has come true in 2016.
Circled around the crib, holding hands with our Jakobe this Christmas night and overwhelmed with emotion I asked Heidi, "What do we say?". With eyes and gentleness of a mother, she replied, "thank you, thank you Lord". 'Amen' my dearest love--Amen.
