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

Joy In My Heart

As we get closer to Evan's first surgery date I think back to the day that I said that this would be impossible. I remember crying and physically having a heartache because I could not fix my baby. Well, the impossible is happening all around us. So far we are halfway to our goal of paying for all of Evan's surgeries. We could not have done this without our friend, family and the wonderful community we live in. Each day I receive a call from someone wanting to help. I was reading on Mercy Me's website today and they have a new album called "Mr. Lovewell". The whole concept is basically to love others well and make a difference in someone's life by showing them love and sharing the word. Each of you are our Mr or Mrs Lovewell. You have made such a huge difference in our life and we will always pay that love forward. Thanks for loving us!

Just wanted to update everyone about our progress. We are leaving for Evan's first surgery on May 16th. We will be in Los Angeles for about 2 weeks. I am very nervous and beginning to doubt the decision we have made for Evan. They all tell me this is normal... BUT - How do you decide to make physical changes to your baby who you see as perfect? I ask myself this everyday...I have gotten into the bad habit of kissing his little ears and I will miss them - BUT I have to remember I am giving my son the chance to be normal and miss all the stares and comments made about the ears that will soon be a thing of the past. So for now, I am hearing with my heart which tells me to do everything in my power to get EARS FOR EVAN.
