Almost Forget...

I can't believe I forgot to mention the biggest news of all -- the Owens' family is going to Disney World!  Make-a-Wish has made our dream come true.  We are set to leave on May 17th for a week of fun at all the parks and relaxation at the Make-a-Wish resort, Give Kids the World.

They are so accommodating to all of our special needs and are bending over backwards to make this happen for us.  In fact, if Gavin were to get sick the night before we leave -- no biggie, we just go as soon as he is discharged from the hospital.  Our team at duPont is gong to do everything in their power to make this happen for us -- thanks guys, we love you all so much!

Someone also commented on how Gavin was sitting up in the photos.  Yes! -- Gavin is regaining a lot of strength.  He can sit unsupported for periods of time and although he still has moments of "hello are you in there?" the good moments are by far out numbering them.

Yes -- he is amazing,an answers to so many prayers!

Praise God! This is full of amazing news! I pray faithfully for your little sweetie, and I hope you don't mind, but I posted a pic of him on my blog with the words "praying for" above the pic and a link to your blog. I don't know how many people read my blog, but I figure he can use all the prayer he can get! I am so thankful that God is hearing our cries out to Him about your sweet boy. I just KNOW He will continue to work in Gavin's little life. Praise Him!!!

I take so much for granted. You have taught me to enjoy every moment, to be real in my disappointments and to stay steady at the wheel on this ship of life.
What a ROCK you guys are, all of you.
Happy Resurrection Week!
