1 YEAR OLD!!!!!!

About a year ago my husband and I contacted over 100 churches across our nation to have them pray for our unborn son Jonah. Soon the word was spread( thanks to the internet) and we had people in over 13 countries praying for our little man. He was diagnosed with severe Hydrocephalus. The Doctor made his condition sound like a death sentence. They said if anything the best scenario for his life would be that he would have slight physical and mental disabilities. The day of his birth I was so nervous and excited but most of all scared. I just kept clinging to the words God gave me which was ‘ I kept the Jonah of old safe in the whale and I will keep your Jonah safe today’ . At about 8:34 a year ago today our son Jonah was born. His cry was the most beautiful sound I had ever heard, we were so worried he wouldn’t cry and we wouldn’t be able to keep him. He weighed 6 lbs 7 oz and was 5 weeks early!! ( big boy) He quickly went off to surgery to get his shunt placed. he was in the nicu for a month (mostly because he wouldn’t eat on his own) and then we brought him home.
Now a year later he has only had to have one shunt revision and he has NO disabilities whatsoever!!! he is progressing the way any one year old should be. He actually took his first steps a few days ago and loves to clap and wave hi! Jonah is my reminder that God is good and he is who he says he is. I look at this kid every day and I’m amazed at Gods mercy and grace. I don’t know why but he chose to heal Jonah and let us borrow him for a little while longer. Our God is still in the business of miracles! I have living proof laying right next to me. And his name is Jonah. Happy birthday to my sweet little boy!!!!!!
