Dear Lord, it's me, Noah...I'm joining with everyone else who is praying for me...please send a miracle. Thanks!

This morning I found Noah's hands folded neatly around his bunny in the "praying" position. His nurse is pretty cute! This, though, set the tone for the day as we had a good time of prayer as a family before everyone headed out of town. It was great to have everyone here, to feel the support physically, emotionally, spiritually and to be reminded that Noah isn't only our son and Em's brother, but he's somebody's grandson, nephew, cousin, great-grandson...

We had a sort of "preliminary" meeting with a doctor this evening who specializes in bone marrow transplants, different than umbilical, but somewhat in that field, who will likely be at the meeting. We weren't discouraged, though we certainly weren't encouraged...this is such a controversial topic, it is so new in research and experimentation, there are so many politics the more you look into this topic and the reality is, not a lot of doctors or the FDA are interested in being the first in the USA to try this on a child without a concrete diagnosis...I'm pretty sure when Peter stepped out of the boat, he knew that he wasn't going to be walking on a concrete sidewalk, he was fully aware that his surroundings were water and he was activating his faith...

God knows what is supposed to come of the meeting at 1pm tomorrow in Tammen Hall in the Founders Room on the second floor. One thing I do know is we have all of your support and prayers. Thank you all for your continued strength! You guys ROCK! Going to bed early for the big meeting...good night, and may God richly bless you beyond your wildest imagination!

(Tammen Hall is the original historic building of the hospital, so not in the main entrance but across the round-about from the main entrance. The Founders Room is on the second floor. Take a left off the elevators.)

  2. Our whole family is sending prayers for your whole family. God never told us to sit back and let Him take over. He said, "Be active with Jesus in your hearts, minds, and souls, and He will lead you. It sounds like you are doing just that. May His peace, comfort, joy, and happiness be with you always.

    Love,
    Ryan & Ellen and the kids, Jacob, Christian, Emma, and Grace Berends

  3. Adrienne,
    I've set a reminder on my computer at work so I don't "miss out" on your meeting today. I'd love to run over for it, but can't pull away from the office. Just know that I'll be praying for you during that time.

    Much prayers,
    Audrey

    It's 9:00 pm here in Arizona. I'm waiting to read your next blog to see how the meeting went. It's amazing to think about how many people around the world are praying for Noah. When I think about that I think about all these hands linked hand in hand in unity lifting up baby Noah. Be still and wait upon the lord. He'll speak through the right people.
    Love, angie
