Late night but good day

Eden had a great day today. Sorry no photos. We were at the hospital very late because Eden was so awake and active. I didn't know a T-5week old baby could be so fun! I thought they just did the old "eat, sleep, poop" trick. But she had her eyes wide open and a smile (as much as possible with the tubes) and she would kick and squirm. She looked great. Thank you God for a special time with Eden!

I'll try to post a video of this event later tomorrow.

Tina's mom arrives in about 8 hours. I will be great to see her. I suspect she'll be pretty jet-lagged after 18+ hours on an airplane.

Thank you all SOOOOOO much for the prayers, verses and words of encouragement!!!

I'm so glad that you both have been able to feel the undefineable wonder of seeing your daughter as a special individual from God. To think that God would entrust you with one of His little jewels is just wonderful. Give her a soft little kiss from Grandad & Grandmother!

John and Tina,

We are following Eden's progress on the blog and we wanted you to know that we and the Family at Lighthouse are praying for all of you! Already, Eden is a miracle of miracles in our book. Remember that God's promise to give Eden a future and hope is yours too.

Trusting God,
Pastor Brian and Jeanine
