Good things come to those who wait

Today, Bodie went back to preschool, for the first time since before his pre-Fontan cath. For the first time since May, actually. 
It is hard to put into words what this picture represents; the sheer volume of prayers, hopes and dreams, the sleepless nights, the time spent on bended knee praying for this little boy, the days spent in hospital rooms, the countless hours spent researching doctors and procedures. 

And now, for the first time in his life, Bodie  is back at school without open-heart surgery on the horizon. And in a wonderful twist of God watching out for our son, his teacher is Teacher Sasha, who was Sierra's teacher at her preschool 5 years ago. Love it when God throws little things in like that. Couldn't possibly have felt better to be leaving Bodie with a familiar face. 

Thank you for the love and prayers that have brought us to this point. 


  1. LUCKY TEACHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. So happy for Bodie and his proud family.

  3. Such wonderful news to know the prayers are working. Go Bodie!

  4. Such a great time for celebration! Praying you will have some peace of mind and recovery time...for as long as God permits! xox

  5. what a precious and beautiful moment. Seriously, praises to God for this beautiful little boy and the battle and testimony that is his little life. :)
