Another year has come and gone. 2012 was a difficult year in our house, but it was a wonderful year too. For every challenge there was a blessing, for every heartache there was more reliance on God. This year medically for both boys was very overwhelming and scary. But this year also was very rewarding medically. In being vigilant and proactive, we have finally gotten some answers to Sam's abdominal issues. And although the eosinophilic colitis was certainly a scary diagnosis I am praising God we found it, that we were able to pinpoint the foods that were bothering him and remove them. Praise God that this year was a year of healing for Sam's stomach. As we look forward to 2013 and realize that there may yet be some more scary news in the first part of the year for him, I am placing my trust in Him the one who created Sam and us. The One who knows the answers, the One who knows the outcomes, the One who will walk with us through each step with Sam. Rejoicing in knowing that whatever comes in 2013 for Sammy that God will be there too. Sammy has thrivied this year emotionally and spiritually. When I listen to my children' pray I am so blessed to know that they KNOW that God is there and that He hears and loves them. Sam has really become a much more sensative individual this year. He has definitely reached out to those around him that are hurting. I am so proud of the person he is becoming, a person who enjoys helping others, and is aware and sensitive to others feelings.
