A Day Of Farewells

Oh man have the tears been flowing today saying so many goodbyes to our friends and our Massachusettes family.  We have been blessed by so many people.  

 This is me and Dan

 Mike (Dan's brother), Me, and Dan

 This is Kim she is the Child Life Specialist here at Spaulding who has been working with Mackenzie since we arrived in October

 Mike and Liz with Mackenzie and I

 Norman and Joanna with Mackenzie and I

 Gary and Holly

 The two most incredible nurses Adam's team Kendra who has been Adam's nurse for the last 6 months and Maryellen who has been his evening nurse for the last 4 months, when these girls were on, I never had to worry about Adam, they are amazing!  All 3 of us were in tears saying goodbye.

 This is my dear friend Helen, she has been family for us, we're going to miss you Helen

Mackenzie, my dear friend Lisa (I refer to her as my angel sent to me here in Boston), and myself

This picture really doesn't do it justice, but this is my latest accessory, my cane has butterflies all over it, if I have to have a cane I might as well have the reminder that God is doing a work in us... oh how I love butterflies!

God has been so faithful at sending such amazing wonderful people to walk this journey with us, I will miss all of Massachusettes family and friends.  Thank you to all of you for walking this journey with us.

We are looking forward to tomorrow and ready to start the next chapter of this journey.  Thank you for your prayers as we travel tomorrow, pray that Adam will be okay clminbing up and down the stairs to the aircraft.  Pray as we make the transition into working with new staff, pray for God to continue to prepare the way for us and that we will be obedient to His calling.  Please also pray for my back as I will be sitting on the plane tomorrow and sitting is my most painful position.  Thank you for your prayers, we could not do this daily journey without the support of your prayers, you all are amazing!

"I know, O God, that wherever they travel, You will be with them. There is nowhere they can go, no situation they can face, which is outside Your love and strength; and so I commit them into Your care and keeping on this journey, knowing that at all times I am in Your hands. Amen" You are in the best of hands!
