  9. REJOICING!!!! (And crying . . . and REJOICING some more.)

    September 11th brings a NEW DAY, for Joshua! We praise You Lord!!'

    Just looked down at my desk and saw this quote that I'd scribbled down a while back--

    "When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life or in the life of another." --Helen Keller

    Thank you Sonia and John for doing your best for JJ! He's coming home! Thank you Lord for Your miracles!

    Love you girl, hang in there!
