Thankful



My mommy and daddy wanted to take a minute to tell you guys what they're thankful for...
One year ago (on Thanksgiving! (we don't think it's coincidence)) Kouper came into our lives. Little did we know that he would turn out to be our very own miracle. We were totally distraught at first, not knowing if our little angel would be okay, not knowing where to turn. It was like a whirlwind, yet time stood still. All we knew in the beginning was that he had "multiple congenital anomalies". We were told he had heart problems, words like ventricular septal defects, heart murmurs and holes in his heart were thrown out there. What? Our baby? It couldn't be!? But it was. We didn't even know what anomalies were, or the impact that they would have on all of our lives. It took months to decipher through all of his "issues". We left the hospital with a ton of doctors to see and still questions about his eye and most everything else in our minds. What? Now what do we do? Is this really happening to us? No one ever thinks that their baby will have health problems. It can't happen to me! Yes it can, and it does... every day. The only thing to do is pray (a lot) and lean on your family and friends.

Well look at Mr. Kouper now! He is doing wonderful. Most of the holes in his heart are closed, he is sportin' one uh I mean TWO beautiful blue eyes, his solitary kidney is functioning great, his bladder diverticulum hasn't caused any infection, his scoliosis is okay for now and we are two very proud parents of one very little miracle.

We are so thankful for all of you guys who have offered prayers for us. Most of all we're thankful for our sweet, sweet baby boy... Kouper Shane.

Secondly we are so blessed to have Kayson too. He is the best big brother anyone could ever ask for. He is well mannered, kind-hearted, loving, generous, adorable, brilliant, hilarious, a great helper and we couldn't be any more proud of him.

What are you thankful for?

I have no doubt that Kouper was put in your care by the Lord b/c you are two wonderful, caring parents. I'm thankful for knowing you and sharing your beautiful family, your friendship and many more years of happiness to come!
