Feels Like a Dream


Yesterday's appointment went great!


Mason's lungs look much better.


We were given permission to go HOME!


This Friday, July 16th, will be exactly 5 months from when we began our huge "LEAP OF FAITH", the chapter of Mason's journey when we said goodbye to our family to go get Mason a NEW HEART!


Walking by FAITH it has been for certain, accompanied by a lot of HOPE and BELIEF IN MIRACLES!


With many bumps in the road, lots of twists and turns, we acutally accomplished what we set out to do and now we are ready for our next chapter: Home With a New Healthy Heart.


Feels like a dream!


The next time I post hopefully will be from our HOME in Utah.


Please pray with us that upon arriving home Mason can stay healthy and continue getting stronger and stronger.


Even though Mason and I have been here in California away from our family, we have never been alone:

"And whoso receiveth you, there I will be also, for I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you to bear you up." D&C 84:88


I love this dream!!!

I have goosebumps!!! Thank you for allowing me to share your story online and watch your journey with Mason. Our early years with Ava were never easy (truthfully, they still aren't) and I appreciate your reminders to stay strong, have HOPE, keep the FAITH, and TRUST God. I am praising Him today that you will soon be HOME with the rest of the family.

Huge lump in my throat and a heart full of gratitude for the blessings that are yours. You shared those blessings and now they are ours. Summer, I cannot express how much admiration I have for you and your family to have made the sacrifices you have in order to experience the victories you deserve. We will continue to cheer and pray and hope for a life changed by faith and blessed with more ordinary miracles going forward.

HUGE HUGS!!
