what's going on...

I was writing a response to an email this morning about Izzy and realized there were enough things going on to warrant an update on her!

I'm seeing some new things this year and it's pretty exciting. Izzy is starting to actually show interest in certain things. This after so many tries to get her to act interested in a toy or a food. She pouted when her teacher tried to replace a toy she was holding and stayed unhappy until she was given back the original toy. I watched her reach for Barney stickers in therapy yesterday and was actually surprised to see her little hand reach high to get the sticker. She really wanted it! I brought home cheesecake from lunch the other day and offered a bite to her. She gobbled up all I would give her. She loved it! I am so excited to see her show preferences!

She loves being read to, likes to be talked to like a big girl, and enjoys her time at school.

You know that we always give God all the glory and praise for any and all improvements in Isabelle, without His healing and protection we would not have her at all. We are so thankful for the work that He is doing and the wonderful things to come!

Great updates on Izzy. Good to see she's actually reaching out for things she wants. That's got to be a huge step in the right direction.

I just saw the post on her hair! Wow - that's a great gift she's giving someone. Amazing. I know you were sad to see it go, but someone of Izzy's beauty doesn't need hair to complete the package. :) (Although I'd have cried like a baby to see it go, too!).

How exciting that she is getting some strong interests & opinions. And it's a variety of things. That is really wonderful.

Continuing to believe for Izzy,

Annie, I left you and Izzy an award on my blog. Don't feel like you have to do anything with it, just know you both bless me so much.

Way to go Izzy! What a huge answer to prayer, I'm so glad to hear that Izzy is doing so great. I always say it's the HUGE small things that make all the difference in the world.

I've been thinking lately about a verse I used to quote everyday it's, Hab.2:2-4 Write the vision on the wall for all to see, but know these things won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow do not despair, for it will not be overdue a single day.

I would chose God to reach down and complete the healing in Luke right this second and I continue to pray for this to happen. But as we have learned my friend God's timing is perfect and as we continue to trust Him, He is faithful. I'm encouraged to hear that God is slowly, steadily and surely healing Izzy, just as He is doing with Luke and Abbie. I continue to pray for a complete miracle and am believing for this to happen as I know you are too.

Be blessed my friend and don't ever lose hope,

That is great news. I loved the photo on the bike up on top. I haven't seen a bike like that one.

Prayers that she continues to make amazing strides.
