Update On Amden




















As you can see, my gorgeous great-nephew Amden is riding in style! He is growing into a handsome little man, defying all odds and shocking his doctors. He is on target with his peers in ever area accept strength in his neck muscles. He is attempting to crawl and explore the world.

My family and I thank each of you for your prayers. Clearly, GOD is listening and continues to answer daily. We can not express our gratitude adequately  for your love, prayers, encouragement, and support. The outpouring of love on Amden's behalf  has been beyond belief or comprehension.

We are truly blessed and we count it as a blessing, the greatest blessing to have Amden as "our" baby! He is a precious gift shared with each of us by our Heavenly Father.

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

Thank you for the update and sharing your blessings.

It's amazing how doctors say, "no hope," and God says, "Just watch!"

Rebecca said...

"What mercy, what love, and what grace!" These words from a song I used to sing in a trio years ago ("I Am Unworthy")come to mind as I rejoice with you and ALL of Amden's family!

Lisa said...

Praise the Lord Andrea, I will keep praying.

Tara said...

Oh my GOLLY! Amden is adorable! I want to snuggle ... I can't get past that 'baby fever' mode, so help me!, & never will, I guess.

Hug that precious child closely & be so ever grateful Amden is just fine.

Love you, Andrea.
Hugs, Me

Much Love and Prayers to all of you. Thank you for taking time in your busy lives to think and pray for my GRANDSON. He is beautiful and sweet. Just like the people praying for him.

Good Morning Andrea Sweetie...
Oh how precious is this little guy. God is so good to us. I will be keeping him in my prayers.

I see in scrolling you have a precious new grandson. He is so precious sweetie. Our little grandson was born June 10th. Not much older than yours.

I love the photo of you and sweet hubbie on the beach. What a blessing our hubbies are. I don't know where I would be without mine. He has stood right there beside me through ths all.

I also see that your little Savannah is struggling with asthma. I will be praying for her. I know how hard this is. I have been battling that darn pneumonia and asthma excaberation for almost 4 months. It has been one of the roughest roads I have ever gone down. Actually all the coughing is what has taken my voice from my body. I can squeak a little.

Marydon can understand me most of the time, but she has been listening for so long, it is like baby chatter, you learn it you know? I am researching sign language and going to start learning some of it. Someday down the road I just may need it. For now, I squeak it out when I really want to talk.

Poor Tony can't hear, I can't talk, and when I get out my wipe board he has to find his reading glasses to read what I have written. God help us in 10 more years.

I have some other issues going on Andrea, and I would certainly appreciate your prayers. You can email me privately and I will explain. Lots of prayers around the 19th sweet friend.

Talk to you soon. Have a gorgeous Sunday. The sun came out, so we will have a blessed day.

Many country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

My Dearest Andrea,

I can't believe how big he has gotten...such a beautiful handsome little one. I just want to kiss those sweet little cheeks and snuggle him into my neck!!

You know how I love little ones.

I am so happy to hear that he is doing so well...but then God does everything so very well doesn't He?

I love you,
Alleluiabelle

So wonderful to hear! Just said another prayer for him!

Ozjane said...

Praise God for His faithfulness to you all.
I so love that we always have so much to be thankful for and to be able to rest our answers to our prayers in His gracious sovereignty.

Being Me said...

Wonderful blessings. God always has his own ideas. We should continue to pray always and not assume that we can predict the outcome even though we say we hope.

i recently bumped into a lady whom I expected to be in her last legs of life because she had been diagnosed stage 4 breast cancer. Yet she is surviving (hair growing back, put on some weight) and recovering with treatment.

To me it is amazing, because we all assumed she would go the same way as some others before her. It's not remission, but a miraculous recovery which means God has a mission for her through this experience.
