hey guys this is Aaron, Jamie’s husband, blogging on her behalf!  she asked me to blog tonight for her, so here it is!

Jamie is almost asleep with Story at Dell Children’s Hospital.  I’m here with the boys back at the house.  Jamie is LOVING having her baby girl home!!  We’ve absolutely seen God’s hand and perfect timing all over this adoption.  We’re so GRATEFUL to have her here in the USA with us.  We found out today that Story has viral meningitis.  They are watching her closely until she’s able to eat/drink/walk as normal before they  will release her.  Because she came from Haiti, they are doing all kinds of thorough tests to make sure she has no parasites or any kinds of other bacterial infections.  They are doing an amazing job of caring for her at Dell.  We’ve had so many friends come by and bring food and gifts… it’s been amazing to see our community (online and local) gather around us and pray for Story’s homecoming and healing.

Jamie says she has A LOT to blog about…but since she’s pretty much got Story in her lap 24 hours a day, she’s saving the blogging time for when she gets home.  She says she’ll give a re-cap of ALL the amazing things God has done.

Please pray that Story starts feeling well enough to move/play/eat very soon so she can come home.  Also, please pray that our sweet AMOS gets to come home very soon as well.

Thanks for your concern, support, and prayers!!
