My baby has a star

and I have wonderful friends.

I went to Bunco last night, my first time away from the boys since this mess all started. I am so glad I went. At the end of the evening my friends presented me with a large package and a card. I wept. A lot. And that was before I even knew what it was.

They named a star for Little Jimmy. We know he is in Heaven amongst the stars--now he has one of his very own. They had tried to get everything done to present it to me on his due date last month, but were unable to. That's fine. The timing was perfect.

Only one of the ladies knew before last night what's been happening around here. I had her share with everyone, as I was crying too much to. They were wonderful. Afterwards they all gathered around me and prayed.

Nothing has changed as far a the situation with social services, but we're doing better. Pumpkin is running and playing as much as he can--with one arm--and two parents constantly cautioning. He's being such a super kid with it all.

Sweetheart goes into the orthopedic today for his broken hand and to talk to the doctor about what kind of tests can be done to see why he and Pumpkin break bones so easily. We'll see what the doctor says. It's the ortho that Pumpkin saw for his leg, not the one we saw last week for the arm.

This is all far from over, but we are trying to just live, pray, trust and not fear as much as possible. Your sweet comments, and prayers mean so much. My thanks to each one of you.

I will be praying for you-I understand your fears. Never forget the Lord is TOTALLY in control of this situation. He will not allow into your lives more than you can bear. He holds every doctor, social worker, decision, etc. in the palms of His Hands.
And He loves you.

I'm so happy to see an update from you Kimberly! You've been so much on my heart and mind this week.

The star is so thoughtful...what a lovely idea and what a lovely group of friends you have!

Still praying.

Ah, Kimberly - This brought tears to my eyes. What precious friends you have. It's so good to be one of God's children.

Praying the first ortho doctor will be able to find some answers. Hugs to you!
