Our family has been asked by God to answer the cry of an adorable little boy in China to have a family!! He is a special little boy with an amazing, sweet heart even though his physical heart isn't "perfect". We are honored and blessed to answer his cry.

Jace goes to kindergarten and some extra prayers needed

It's hard to believe but Jace started kindergarten on the 16th. He loves school and not sure if he was more excited about going or taking his Mickey Mouse backpack. The boy is obsessed with Mickey Mouse.
It has been 3 months since his surgery. His vocal cords have improved. Left nearly back to normal and right still paralyzed. We are eating and drinking without trouble. Overall Jace has had more energy and has been so happy to spend time with his sweet friends Jabin and Lucy Kate. So amazing how God worked out for these 3 special children to stay close!!
Over the last week Jace has developed a bad cough, is a little more short of breath and his oxygen level is low again. Our pediatrician is unsure what is going on so we are headed back to St Louis this week for his heart specialists to look at him. So happy for the expertise of the drs there even if it is a 3 1/2 hour drive.
So pray for Jace and the dr's. Last night he asked me to read a book before bed. I was exhausted and my first reaction was, "tomorrow, mommy is tired.". Then I realized each day with Jace is a blessing and I was honored to read him a story. Jace has been granted a wish from the "Make a wish foundation" and of course he told them he wanted to go to Mickey's house. Praying that things improve for him and he gets his wish!! Jace coming to our family has had lots of ups and downs. I daily am reminded that God doesn't give us more than we can handle and that God is in control. Thanks for everyone's prayers for Jace.

    I echo your heart when you talk about "Then I realized each day with Jace is a blessing and I was honored to read him a story."
