Elmo is the Bomb Digity!

At least in our house that is. Little J is an Elmo freak!!! I have an Elmo story to share, but your going to have to wait for it, because I still have to take the perfect photo to go along with it. All I can say right now, is that Elmo makes little J happy. Since Elmo makes him happy, he makes me happy too!

Things have been crazy in our house lately! We have had tons of family visiting, and that isn't going to stop for at least another week or so. That's just fine with us too! It's been so nice having everyone come to see us and offer their love and support for our new journey. It was really nice to have my stepmother here, to go to Little J's evaluation and eligibility appointment for Early Intervention Services. I was a bit nervous about this appointment and what it would entail. We knew, that it would primarily be an evaluation of what types of therapies little J was going to need. Since he was diagnosed with something so rare, we knew that he was going to be automatically eligible. My stepmother is one of the few people who can keep me grounded and focused when my emotions start to take over. The appointment went very well. I really think that the team of people doing his assesment really got a clear picture of what little J can and cannot do. I also cannot wait until we can get all of the right therapies in place and going. Little J has been making such great progress in the last few months while we've been waiting for this appointment, and I am very anxious to see what he will do once the pro's get a hold of him!

There are so many things I am thankful for these days. Mostly though, I am thankful for my family, my friends, the doctors who are working with our family and all their care and concern, and that my faith in God is strong. Everyday, he shows me that he is there for us, that we are not alone, and that everything is going to be just fine.

Today, the things I am praying for are that God will keep his guiding hand on little J and our family, and that he will give the doctors, therapists, us and others that work with him, the wisdom, knowledge and capabilities to work together to give little J every opportunity to stay healthy, be happy, live as independently as possible, be able to do anything his little heart desires, and live his life to the fullest. I also pray this for all the other families of little ones going through similar circumstances.
