I am so thankful for the prayers and encouragement and wisdom extended to us in these difficult days. Today my stepdaughter was arrested for the injuries to our grandson, Heath. She confessed and is now in jail. At 21 she is facing a maximum of 40 years in prison. The one bright spot today is that Heath (13 months) was more himself than he's been since this all started. He ate very well, smiled, laughed. He even took a few steps today and had not been able to even stand before today because he was so weak and frail. We are so grateful over his progress and for his dad and grandparents, who are giving him love and safety and who welcome us into Heath's healing process. We are so incredibly sad over our daughter and sad for her. Our son in law is under enormous stress, as well. I ask you to remember all three of them in prayer, please. Only God is able to put shattered lives back together, and He does so with His love. I know He is able to do all that seems impossible and I give Him thanks and praise for that. Again, I thank you, my friends.
