I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

Caring for Carter

The past few weeks have been CRAZY to say the least!  We have been super busy.  There was Caring for Carter Day, a pep rally for Carter, Brandon and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary and we unexpectetly had to move!  We have been very busy, so I do appologize for not updating the blog sooner.  I am going to try to play catch up with the next few post.  Here we go...
Caring for Carter was a HUGE success! Hundreds of people came out to show their support for Carter.  To say that it was overwhelming is an understatement.  When we drove into Shiloh Park, I saw all of the cars and thought there was a baseball tournament going on.  Much to my suprise the full parking lot was for the Caring for Carter event.  We are so blessed to have such great co-workers and live in such a great community!  I have to say a special thank you to my coworkers on the second floor of Blair E. Batson and a bigger thank you to Emily Sullivan.  Emily came up with the idea and basically lived and breathed Caring for Carter for months.  You all completely took my breath away and you honestly have no idea how much it meant to us!  We are also extremely thankful to our Brandon Elementary School family.  You all continuously do things for our family.  We honestly could not make it without all of you.  I am still in shock that there was a day devoted just to Carter!

There have been multiple times on this journey that Brandon and I have both asked one another how we are going to make it?  I am not only talking about financially, but how will we make it emotinally and physically.  To say that the past two years have been hard is just not good enough.  We both feel like we have been tested on every aspect of our faith and lives.  It has been hard!  On the morning of the event Brandon woke up and read his daily devotional.  It said, Relax in the knowledge that the One controls your life is totally trustworthy.  Come to Me with confident expectation.  There is nothing you need that I cannot provide.  I am pretty sure this was meant for us.  Actually, I am pretty sure the entire book was written for us.  I will talk about other verses in my future post.  God has met every one of our needs this far and I know he will continue to do so.  Sometimes I am confused on what I did to deserve this.  I do not deserve all of these blessings!  God has been and continues to be so good to our family.  I do not care how hard it gets.  I will stand strong in my faith and continue to ride along on this little journey. I want to say a big thank you to everyone who came out to Caring for Carter Day.  I also want to say a big thank you to all of the businesses, vendors and Colleges for your donations.  It will be a day we will NEVER forget!  As always... To Him be the Glory!

Here are a few pictures from the big day...

 It was ALL for this little man!
