Bodie Isaac Bennett

Welcome to the world, our little fighter...

7lb13oz, 20.5in






Bodie...a small mining town in the Eastern Sierra Nevadas - shows our love for the mountains and matches his big sister's name Sierra perfectly.

Isaac - in the Bible, God asked Abraham to sacrifice his only, long awaited for, son. Abraham willingly did so, and God rescued Isaac at the last minute and rewarded Abraham for his faithfulness. We chose this name as a constant reminder that our children are not ours, but a gift from God, to be consecrated to Him and to His purposes.

May Bodie Isaac glorify God through his life.

  12. Even looks like a fighter! You have a tough boy on your hands! I am still constantly lifting up prayers. Landon is sending all his healing heart vibes over to Bodie. They are bonded and they don't even know it. I hope one day they can meet :) (and compare scars...you know, cause that is what boys do ) :HUGS:

  17. Hello my name is Jackie. I found out about your precious Bodie from a mutual friend. My daughter Hayden Faith is just over a year old and is also a "heart" kid. Her defects make her very similar to HLHS. She's had 3 open heart surgeries so far and faces more in the future. We'll be praying for Bodie and the whole family through this journey as it's near to our hearts. jax762@yahoo.com

  18. He looks like Sierra, in a boy way. Adorable! I love his name even more, knowing why you picked it. Glad you're feeling OK, definitely different. Get a lot of rest. Praying for all four of you. Erin

  19. Amy, I've been especially heavy in prayer for you guys since I saw you Sunday..and so anxious to hear updates. He is absolutely precious, and when I read your explanation on his beautiful name I just broke down and wept. You can be sure that God is most certainly being reflected through that precious little life, for His light shines on me every time I find myself glued to your beautiful updates.
    Sending all my love...
