We have been forever changed by experiencing a faith-filled journey that first brought us our sweet Caitlin, then an adoption that ended in disappointment, and now one that placed us in the NICU with a sweet little baby boy. Never would we have chosen the disappointment and grief of losing children we had come to love and now worrying about the health of our new little addition, but God's plan has been to forever leave His mark of grace, brokenness, and freedom to obey even when we don’t understand. To Him be the glory for what He has done, and is doing, and will do!

With love and gratefulness to our Heavenly Father who has adopted us into His forever family, and to you, our family and friends,

Robert, Carlene and Caitlin Belue

So very grateful!

Wow, time flies! I didn't realize it had been so long since I've been on the blog. Here's what's been happening.
Cannon is off all medications and doing great! He's happy, eats and sleeps well, and is getting physical therapy from a wonderful lady once a week. No more blood thinner shots or seizure meds. His MRI in July showed blood flow through the area that was once blocked by the clot. His EEG in August looked good and he'll be seen by his neurologist next year to follow up. He is about 18 pounds and almost 9 months old, and smiles all day long.
His adoption was finalized a few weeks ago! We are so grateful for what the Lord has done in our family, for the lessons learned through sorrow and uncertainty, and for this sweet baby!
Psalm 28:6,7 "Blessed be the Lord, because He has heard the voice of our supplications! The Lord is our strength and our shield; our heart trusted in Him and we were helped; therefore, our heart greatly rejoices, and with our song we will praise Him."
