7 Months and counting

It was February and we were in the CICU when Whitney Houston died. Around the hospital people were asking the question, "What is your favorite Whitney Houston song?"   My thoughts turned to the movie, "The Prince of Egypt."  Whitney Houston and Maria Carry sing, "When You Believe."  I looked it up on UTube and listened to it several times that day. 

Today Kamryn is 7 months old and in 7 days will be 5 months post transplant.  As the song says, "There can be miracles when you believe."  While Kamryn has some delays, (she is about 3 months behind developmentally) she is catching up quickly.  Those things we do naturally as moms, help with balance and coordination.  Missing out on those small things makes a big difference.  Yes, she will catch up.  Like her siblings she is not lacking in the social skills.  She is a good flirt.  Tonight as she lays sleeping I can't help but sing, "There can be miracles when you believe."  I know it's cheeeeezzzzeeee!


  1. She is a beautiful baby and a miracle that speaks truth to your families faith in God. We continue to think of her and pray for her as well as your whole family. Hugs.

  2. She will, indeed, catch up. Such a doll.

  3. Happy 7 months! Thank God for your little miracle!
