My Sweet Evan

My Sweet Evan
On my way from Heaven

God delayed my trip that day

He said that I was special

and then sent me on my way

but not before he kissed my ears

He left his Blessed mark

to carry with me here.

He whispered in my ear right then

that he loved me without a doubt

and then he closed my ears up tight

so the whisper won't get out

My baby has a new ear!!!!!!!

Well, if I did not have any patience before God is sure showing me how to be patient now. Evan is up ripping and running like any 3 year old. He does not even seem to know that he has his new ear unless we point it out. We went to the doctor yesterday and part of the ear that we were worried about has healed and worked well. Part of Evan's old ear was used to help build the bottom part of his new ear but that part did not take. Sometimes this happens but it is completely fixable. Evan will have another surgery next Thursday. This will only take about an hour and they will remove the skin that did not work and perform another skin graft. Dr Reinisch and his staff are WONDERFUL. If you are going to be a future patient of theirs you will be very impressed. Despite the bandage changes, Evan was giving Dr Reinisch high fives and telling him 'thank you'. He is such a trooper. I am very blessed to be in Evan's life and walk this journey with him. Although we are VERY homesick and emotionally exhausted I have to look at the whole picture. My baby is getting his ears and life for him will be better. For all of our friends and family out there - WE MISS YOU VERY MUCH AND CAN'T WAIT TO BE HOME!!!!

God is good ALL the time....we just have to wait for his time...


  1. Hi Angela,

    I know how disappointed you must be, but hang in there! This is why we choose the very best surgeons for our kids - if sometrhing doesn't go to plan, then you know they are in the best of hands. Dr Reinisch is such a talented doctor & such a perfectionist that Evan's ear will end up looking fabulous!

    Our thoughts are with you.


  2. I wish I were a billionaire. If I were, I would use my private jet to fly all of your family and friends to you for Memorial Day, buuuut I am a poor school teacher with no private jet. I can just reassure you and tell you that God has such a special plan for your Evan. Your journey and your faith have inspired so many people. We are praying for you!!!

  3. How gorgeous is your little boy, just beautiful we love him dearly xxxxxxxxxx
