"They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness." Psalm 145:7

Kyle turned five months old this week!!! In celebration of this milestone, attached is a video diary of Kyle's life thus far.

We will always be thankful for all of you who have prayed to the living God on our behalf. We believe that God has been more than evident through it all. His presence has been all that we have needed and ever needed. His power and wisdom to work in the midst of this entire past five months is beyond our understanding. We praise His name for the good that has come as a result. God has been gracious to give strength and comfort, He alone deserves our worship and adoration. Even in the time of distress, heartache, uncertainty and tragedy, He remained constant and faithful. We have been to both ends of the emotional spectrum and through it all He has been there. I look forward to the day when we join our voices together and sing... ‘I stand, I stand in awe of You; I stand, I stand in awe of You; Father God to whom all praise is due, I stand in awe of You.’

“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by His grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.” 2Thessalonians 2:16 NIV

In Christ alone,

Jennifer, Joe, Madison and Kyle

Hey guys, that is a great video. I just wanted to sit her and cry. His journey is so close to home for us. He has come such a long way and has the greatest family in the world. He is such a little miracle. I am so glad that you all are home, but I really do miss you all. I suce hope that we keep in touch over the years so one day the kids can actually meet when they will know each other.

That video was great. I just got home from church and checked like I alway do and never thought there would be anything new>>but WOW WAS I SURPRISED>>>I love that so much and thanks so much for putting that on for everyone.

I guess you see where over 10,000 people have seen this BLOG that is amazing I think and should really make you all feel great.

Kyle is such a beautiful baby and getting cuter every day.

Thanks again for sharing that with me and everyone else and any time you feel like doing something like that again, I will love it.

You all are special to me. I wish your grandfather was here to see him, he would be so proud of him.

Thanks again.

Love & Prayers, Aunt Sandra

Hey guys, I know the video is not meant to be sad, but I too cannot help but sit and cry through the entire video. I am sure that you are enjoying every moment being at home near your family and friends and your stay in Orlando is becoming a blur. I hope that we can meet Kyle some day as we feel as though he is such a special part of our lives just like everyone else. Take care and hope to see you soon! Take care! The Hudkins Family

Wow! What a beautiful commemoration of all God has done for your family. I know we shouldn't be surprised at God's miracles, but when you think about the overall journey, it overwhelms and causes tears to flow. Thank you for taking the time in your life of many busy adjustments to share this with us. I was also wondering who wrote and sang this song. It was beautiful.
Love, Aunt Karen

Indeed, Jennifer, the song is beautiful and what a tribute to our Father and to the miracle of Kyle's life. I should see you Saturday at Gabe's party and hope to ask you then who sang it! Thank you for continuing to share the milestones and achievements with us. Laura

I have listened to that video about a dozen time or more, it is wonderful and I love that song so much. Every time I go to see if there is any thing new on the BLOG I have to hear it again. If you happen to make another one please let us hear it also.I have tried to forward it to my friends who have been praying for him also, but I can't do it,and I know they would love to hear it also. I just wanted to tell you it was great. My son-in-law made some of my granddaughter when she was born also like that and they are great also. THANKS FOR SHARING WITH ME AND I AM STILL PRAYING FOR YOU ALL AND LOVE YOU VERY MUCH.

Love & Prayers, Aunt Sandra
