God is Working!
In one of my, if not the first, blogs I wrote about wanting to reach out and connect with other people. When I would talk to God, I would ask Him to use Abigail's cleft as a positive in our lives. I find it easy to focus on the negatives of everything that has already happened and is going to happen. So, trying to focus my energy and prayer on positive things has already started to work. I have asked God to use us as comfort for other's that would be touched by birth defects. I think God heard that and said, "Wait a second, I understand that you want to comfort others, but let's stand back and let me have others comfort you first." So, not only has God answered the prayers of connecting with other people, but He has thrown my own prayer right back on us and allowed us to be comforted by other families that are going through, or have already gone through, the process of raising a child with a cleft. This is just one simple example of how God works. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, and mostly Heather and I thank God for answering those prayers. I am just so excited.
