Quick note of thanks!

I wanted to say two BIG thank yous.....

1. Thank you to sweet
Hollie Anderson for wanting to give me a blog "makeover". Many people charge for this kind of service, and she reached out to me a few days ago asking if she could design a new look for me for free! This gesture was extremely touching in many ways... For one, Hollie and I have never actually met (though we've realized we grew up very close to each other back in Texas!), but she found our site a few months ago and has followed our story and has prayed diligently for our family. Her friendship has become very special to me. Also, this blog is my connection to the "outside world" and has become a place in which I allow myself to be fully open and expressive... and in return friends, family and strangers pray for us. It's a wonderful thing to have the site more personalized and created for me in this way. Oh! And she did a sweet favor for me by incorporating the color orange... orange is the color for leukemia awareness (just as pink is for breast cancer). Needless to say, I'm extremely thankful for all of her work. So thank you again, Hollie for your creative kindness!

2. Next, I want to say thank you to "5 minutes for moms". They've added a link to our blog on their "prayers for children" website! If you scroll down on the right hand side of my webpage here, you can see a pink box that says FAITHFUL PRAYERS FOR OUR CHILDREN. If you click on that box, you will be brought to a website with several children who are in need of prayer. ETHAN is on that list and you can see his picture. If you click on any child on that page, you will be brought to their particular website. Such a huge encouragement to me that Ethan's situation could be spread to even more people who might feel led to pray for him. I am overcome with gratitude that they would include our little boy.

Thank you, Lord for the kindness you continue to show us through others...

Hi Kasey...I noticed your post on Angie's blog, and the word cancer caught my eye. I'm so sorry to read about your baby, but I love the verse on your side bar, that his illness is for the glory of God. I have cancer too and believe the same. Just wanted to say Hi and that I will keep you in prayer. Lorri Steer

I love being able to see Ethan just staring up as soon as I log on to read. Very nice job Hollie it definitely adds that extra warmth, especially seeing it was done with Christian love.

Thoughts and prayers with you and your family. Ethan you are a remarkable young man I can just see it in your eyes. Thanks for inspiring us all to have so much faith Kasey... may God bless you both infinitely! - Amy
