We were blindsided today. Today Xander had his pediatric gastroenterology appointment. I figured it would be a general intake appointment... you know.. give medical history, talk about symptoms and dietary habits. And then the doctor would order blood work and testing. So instead of dragging four children to a medical appointment to be crammed into a too small room, and possibly be distracting, I stayed home with Lainey, Julianne and Solomon.
His birthmom made an adoption plan for him instead of aborting him.
He survived his birth and withdrawal.
He was matched with parents that continue to push him instead of using his birth circumstances as excuses for him not to try his best.
He was spared from contracting Hepatitis C.
He has shown NO developmental delays.
God's hand in Xander's life is apparent. And I'm choosing to cling to that as we pray about the journey ahead.
