Happy Craziness!

One of these days, I'll have to get into talking about my past, because it really explains what a miracle all this stuff is in my life.

We've had lots of very happy stuff going on lately...stuff I'm excited to share about!

(For everyone who's praying for us too, S's appointment is on the 7th with her local pediatrician......the 15th and the 26th, we make the long journey out to see people on her cleft team.....hopefully, we'll have results from the Thyroid/pituitary testing I'm pushing to have done here locally, so we can see if there's a problem, and if there is, find a road map...)

One really cool thing that happened lately, is I was contacted by the PR director of our hospital.....they had used our story for their annual appeal last year, which resulted in over $8,000 in donations for the cleft and craniofacial team. This alone made my heart sing, but I was so honored by what else she had to say. Apparently, she had asked the cleft team if they knew of any other families that might be interested in putting themselves out there and letting them share their story....their response? "You should give Lindsay a call....she's more in touch with our families than we are! She'd have a pretty good idea of who may, or may not, be interested."

It is such an honor to be able to reach out and help other families that are starting this journey, not that we're a little bit further down on the path.

Anyway, in our super UBER big news.....we may be buying a house! We're waiting to hear if our offer was accepted, but we're so excited by this possibility! It's next door to my parents house too, and it puts the kids much closer to their school! Praying we hear back today or tomorrow, but we were able to get the pre-approval bank-wise....now it's just a matter of them agreeing, and us moving forward with all things home-ownership!

Anyway, more to come soon! So excited to see what's on this path God's laid in front of us!
