I Heart Faces | Summer Fun

I heart faces

I have to admit something:

We’ve had VERY little


And if I can be so bold…

(I don’t care for summer.)

I know…you all want to throw tomatoes at me.  Probably freshly grown tomatoes from your SUMMER gardens.

But I live in Oklahoma:  it’s 100 degrees roughly 300 days of the year.

(I may slightly exaggerate.  Slightly.)

But this summer, my Dad happens to still be in the hospital (since the end of April), and we are up at the hospital with him 5 days a week.  So Summer Fun hasn’t been able to happen outside of the hospital room.

But spending time with their MiMi and Papa?  We wouldn’t trade this time for anything.  We look forward to every day spent with them!  Nothing for granted!

So I had to really think of a Summer Fun photo for this month’s photo challenge!

And here is where I tell you:  I am BLESSED beyond words to have this little MIRACLE!

You can all comment on how adorable he is.  I won’t mind at all.

Let me just say, ONE.MORE.TIME:

fostering and adoption is a WONDERFUL thing!

    I love love love this kiddo! I saw this picture and couldn’t help remembering your story of when Chandler noticed he was having a seizure, and your summer fun came to full stop as you raced to save his life. And look at him now! What a huge miracle in such a little (cute!) body!

    Praying for some summer fun for your family… but it sure looks like he was having some right here too!

    I’m sorry to read about your dad. I can totally understand. I have an 88 year old mother in law in failing health….she is 2 hours from here, we have made the drive often. She continues to be a blessing. Now this little guy in the photo? A whole different kind of blessing…the photo say it all! Congratulations, Dana.
