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

Today has been a good day for Evan. We are 2 days out from surgery. We went to the doctor and Evan's drain tubes were removed. He is such a trooper. You honestly would not belive how fast he has recovered. I got a glipse of his ear today and it is very swollen and still has the packing. I still have hope that the vessel will work and the surgery will be a success. Please continue to pray for us. I know the prayers are working because I feel at peace today. Somehow I know that everything will work. I doubted putting Evan through this but God led us here and I know that it was for a reason.
Evan made a new friend today. Luca is a 4 year old from Australia that had surgery about a week before Evan. We met Luca and his family and had ice cream at the Disney Soda Fountain Store. Such a great family and so inspiring to me. If you get a chance you can check out his blog @ It is eerie how similar he and Evan favor. They made our day great and I hope that we made a lasting friendship. Evan was so funny tickling Luca today. I will post pics of them soon. Good night all and say a little prayer. Can't wait to come home .......


  1. Hi Angela,

    So glad to hear Evan is recovering well. Lisa, Luca and their family are close friends of ours. They are such a beautiful family. I am so glad you got the chance to meet them. We have been following Luca and Evan's journeys this past week or so. Both families have been constantly in our thoughts. We are also hoping that everything works out with the blood vessel used during the surgery. You are in great hands with Dr Reinisch. He performed my daughter's surgery last year and was just amazing. We love him!

    Wishing you all the best,

  2. Hi there :-)

Lisa actually sent me an email saying you wouldnt believe we met a Evan & Ayden, thats the names of my boys. Ayden has Microtia and has his surgery booked Dec this year. I have been reading your blog and you are very inspiring I pray that all works out with the blood vessel just trust in the Lord and I am sure that it will all work out.

    Bless you all
