Well, we received the news this weekend that Braden will not be going to Susie's after all. We eagerly wait to see what the Lord has planned for us next.
Our friend Stacie has been an amazing caregiver to Braden in the few weeks she has been watching him, and we are so blessed she was able to help us for a few short weeks.
As of today, we have no temporary or permanent solutions, and so begins another round of trying to figure out who can provide good care for our son. The women of my bible study have been TRULY AMAZING and supportive, and they are all trying to help me find viable solutions.
Please pray for us, as this has been very emotionally distressing on Mommy... we know that God will show us His true plan for us, but until we find the solution, it is truly agonizing every day we don't find an answer. We hope to find a stay-at-home wife or mom who may be interested in taking Braden, or a college student with the availability and willingness to learn about how to care for our little man. He is actually pretty easy, the hardest part is finding a comfort zone when his machines tell you something is going on. We really loved his last nanny, Ms. Caralyn who has moved to TX to take care of another families' children as a live-in Nanny, as her schooling plans didn't quite pan out for her in Arkansas.
We are open to any and all suggestions you all may have for us, as we are running out of options. We are faithful that God will send us an answer, and that Jesus is with us in our fiery trial of life - we are not alone. (Isaiah 43:1-2)
Thanks for your continued prayers and support!
