Thank you!

I need to interrupt our little hiatus to tell my blogging friends a great big


A year ago on Wednesday started our traumatic events leading up to the birth of our beautiful McKenzie. As you know, things did not start out well. You can see here where Reese knew we were headed into some tough times. I started to tell you a little about what was going on here and another update here. You guys have walked this road with us. You have been there through the many updates, the frantic birth, the surgeries and all the praise reports along the way.

Here we are a year later and we are enjoying every moment with McKenzie. She has been a fighter since the day you she decided to be born - six weeks early! I am so thankful for all she has accomplished and how far she has come. My sister is a star mom and takes care of McKenzie's every need. God has certainly answered prayers with regards to McKenzie. He has shown who is in control and that He will guide us.

So, thank you! I can't tell you how much our family has appreciated your prayers and support. I really want you to know that it has meant alot to me.

Here is our girl now. She has glasses now, although rarely wears them as she just pulls them off. She is such a happy girl and laughs and talks all the time. She is slightly behind other kids her age, but not by much. She really is doing so well!

And now, back to our regularly scheduled hiatus! Enjoy the rest of is right around the corner :(

  1. My sister was telling me her story. Amazing! It looks like her surgeries are going well. She's an inspiration to us all.

  2. She looks so happy and sweet! What a neat thing that you can look back and see the blessings. I just know that God is going to use this little girl to inspire many. Thank you for sharing her story with us.

    I so enjoyed talking with your mother this last two weeks at swimming lessons. It was great to catch up on your family! Jessica just loved Trystan and said she saw her at soccer! We would love to have her come over sometime for a playdate!

  3. It's amazing that it was a year ago when we found out about McKenzie. I'm glad you keep us posted on her progress, so thank you to you as well.

    I love that her little glasses are pink, even if she doesn't keep them on well, she's still stylin'.

    Come back soon, girls! Miss you!
