THANK YOU

I want to thank each of you who are so dear to faithfully intercede on behalf of our family; specifically regarding John David.  We have been blown away by how the Lord has been marvelously working in his little life, as well as the life of our family as a whole.  The improvements we have seen in him since returning to Alabama have been amazing.  Praise be to God, who is gracious in all His ways!  

John David loves the preschool program that he is attending twice a week and speaks with great fondness about his teachers and classmates.  He is such a big boy and goes into class now without insisting that Mommy be in the room.  Even taking him to the nursery at church has been so easy, for he knows that "Mommy be right back". :)  He really seems to enjoy his friends and teachers there, as well.  When I do come back to get him, he gives his teachers good-bye hugs and then usually proceeds to tell me which of his classmates had been crying that day.  He is very concerned for others when they are upset.  I am so grateful that he seems to be so happy now during these times that we are apart.  

These improvements are HUGE, for anxiety ~ specifically, separation anxiety, ~ has been one of our biggest concerns.  But PRAISE THE LORD for His lavished grace in allowing such beautiful improvements.  Thank you for your prayers for John David; please continue to pray for him, as well as for us . . . that God will give us wisdom to know how to best parent this precious one with whom we have been graciously entrusted.
