"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16

Trying to Answer Questions

I don't know what questions people may have about this, but maybe one of the biggest questions is: Can we do anything about it? The answer is yes. They can do surgery to fix both cleft lip and palate. Although we do not believe our baby has cleft palate at this time, we can only prepare for the worsed and pray for the best. Most of the time babies born with cleft lip and palate live to be normal, if not ahead of the game because they have some special that most people do not. Through this blog I encourage people to ask questions and also to pass this along. There is already a strong community amoung families with cleft, but I am out to make it even stronger.
I already want to send out thanks to our family. It is really in time of crisis that you see your families true colors, and I can't say enough about the Frost's, Jenson's, Adam's, Begley's, Haefele's, Holme, and the list continues as we get this awesome support. We love you guys so much and appreciate everything you have already done.
One more question we have already got is: What can I do to help? Right now everything people have been doing is what we need; Thoughts and Prayers! We love and appreciate all of them. Like I said before, God has this under control and will provide us with the path we need to take in order to make things great.
Again, I encourage questions and/or comments, and I also encourage this blog to be past along.

Dear Heather, Peter, Colton and baby Jenson,
You are absolutely right in wanting people to have correct knowledge about the baby and help us with understanding what is going on. We thank you for that. I think we would have been confused about a lot of things but you were most open and helpful about getting information to us. The support and love of family and friends is utmost at this time and shall be all the time. Love, Grandpa and Grandma
