A Quick Minute

I have only but a minute before Ty wakes up from his morning nap and Jaden is ready for his morning nap! I wanted to let you all know how we were doing and the decisions we have made regarding Sweet Jaden's head.

After lots of sleepless nights for Kevin and not due to Ty waking up, Kevin and I made the decision that Charlotte was the best choice for our family. After Jaden's last appointment we wanted to make sure that there was not another way we could go about fixing Jaden's head. There are many different types of helmets and prices. However, Kevin did his homework and it was obvious that even though it was more expensive Charlotte was the best option. Once we made the decision we began praying for the financial help!

God is so faithful- a constant in my journey; I am not sure why I struggle with trust when God has proven himself faithful in every situation, even our darkest ones! Anyway Kevin started filing our taxes and with the money we are getting back we will be able to pay for Jaden's helmet! What a blessing that we don't have to borrow more money from family, God is good!

We are praying that Jaden will only need one helmet and that it will be a short process (two to four months...). I can't thank you enough for all the prayers and support. We are at peace with decision, I am just not looking forward to the trips to Charlotte once a week but you know maybe I will get the chance to see my amazing family that lives down there!!

Oh Beth, that is wonderful! I know it must have felt good to have a plan, but even better to see God provide the financial means to see it through. Still praying for all of you! Thanks for the update. (Love the pic! You look great & sooo happy.)

That's great news! Isn't amazing how God provides?

When Stacey and I were first married we prayed for money for a washer and dryer but never knew where the money would come from. As it turns out, I never changed my W-4 when we got married and I was paying more taxes than I needed to. When tax refund time came we had exactly enough money to purchase a washer and dryer!

That is so awesome, Beth! How sweet of our Lord to care for you in such a perfect way. Praying for Jaden's treatment to be quick and effective.
