Psalm 127:3-5

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.

Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"

Psalm 127:3-5

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-jig!

Dusty and Sonya were in the same room at St. Mary's Hospital.

Sonya was glad to have Daddy with her!

One tired tiger!

Johnny and Carolyn came for a visit - with Build-A-Bears.

Dusty in the Play Room at St. Mary's Hospital.

Johnny and Sonya having FUN.

Happy too!
On Sunday evening we were told that Sonya could come home on Monday, however, Dusty would need to stay until Tuesday or Wednesday.  Then Monday we were surprised and caught unprepared when we found out that BOTH children could go home.  We were one car seat short!  Not to worry - our wonderful friend Jennifer came to the rescue with a car seat!  

Jennifer and Sonya
A great visit with friends!
Heading Home - Fun ride from their hospital room to the car!
Bye - Bye!  Thanks for all of your help, St Mary's Hospital Staff!  You are WONDERFUL!
Big Brother helping out with all the STUFF!
The crew!

We're going...Home again, home again, jiggety-jig!
Thanks for all of your prayers and support!  Stay tuned... our giveaway is coming soon!


  1. Oh my. The kids are beautiful!!!

    Dusty is such a tiny little guy. I hope he is doing well. Have you had them checked for h. pylori....I notice people feeding him and hoping they aren't "sharing" with their own food as that would be how it is spread. 6 of the 10 of us had it after we got our sweetheart home.

    Love following your trip to get your beautiful children.

    God bless you!!!

  2. Whew! so thankful your little ones are home, though it looks as if the hospital is not only a good place to get better, but a place where children are cherished. Love the "nameplates" on the door of Dusty and Sonya's hospital room - what a nice touch to make families and children feel at home.

    So now - blue skies and sunshine, all the way, as Sonya and Dusty blossom!

    Very best wishes,
    Susan in Ky
    Cousin to 2 from U.

  3. I'm so happy for you! Your babies are gonna love their home, I'm sure! Sonya is loving all the atention isn't she? So beautiful!

  4. Yay home! Bet that feels good. I love reading your updates!

  5. YAHOO! Welcome home!!! So glad they are doing so well now.

  6. Glad you're home and the kids are doing so well.
