1 Month Home

A Month ago today Miss Mila entered the United States with a future full of hope. Today she will receive the gift of health as she undergoes open heart surgery to have her heart repaired. She will have a mama and a daddy by her side every moment loving her though her recovery and advocating for her needs. She will have family and friends praying for her and cheering her on. She will have LOVE and HOPE and A CHANCE AT A NEW LIFE.

October 19: Met Mila
November 19: Brought Mila HOME
December 19: Open Heart Surgery

JANUARY 19: Celebrate Mila's life!

I woke up this morning with the song "This is the Day that the Lord Has Made...We Will Rejoice and be Glad in It....." and I've been singing it all morning. Shawn is snuggling Mila as she drifts in and out of sleep. The world continues on ourside our window but today our lifes pause in anticipation as our daughter is made healthy by The Great Healer. Please join us in prayer throughout the day as Mila comes to mind. Thank you friends.


  1. Praying for your family and for Mila this morning.

  2. I am from Russia, I pray for you and you little daughter Mila. You are a wonderful mother and I thank God for putting Mila into such loving family.

  3. The Holy Spirit promted me to pray for her at the gym this morning. Will be lifting her up through out the day. God is indeed doing making a new creation!!!

  4. I wish I knew the right words to share with you! I remember the morning we handed our daughter over for the same surgery. It was five years ago but I can still feel the intense emotions that we went through. A nurse told me once that children with DS seem to handle the surgery better than typical children. It will be amazing when this is over how much she will grow and change! My thoughts and prayers are with you this morning as Mila goes through this.
