Happy Mother's Day Patience. You have certainly showed the world and GOD the true meaning of your name. I'm sure when your Mother gave you this special name she never imagined your patience would truly be tested. You and Jordan are an amazing couple to share your life with others and show your love for GOD, each other, and especially your beautiful boy. May things continue to improve with each and every day.
Love,
Angela Clinard

Happy Mother's Day Patience!!!!
My faith also wavered as the days passed with no new post, call it another mom's knack for worry :0)

Praise God that you have had days to snuggle and kiss that sweet boy of yours. I look forward to seeing the WHOLE Leino family at C3 in the future and being able to spoil Isaac rotten in the children's ministry. Much love for all 3 of you!

Patience, I thought of you this Mother's Day morning when I woke up and was praying for you and wondered how things were going. What a blessing to look and see you here holding your precious little boy. Isn't it amazing how you can love one so much who you are doing all the caring and giving to! That is the love of a parent--such an illustration of how the Lord loves us--He is doing all the giving and caring and we are recipients! I am so glad that you all have been able to hold your little one. I can only imagine the peace and comfort tht it is for Isaac to hear your voices and maybe to hear you sing to him. May our gracious and loving Lord continue to give you strength as His light shines through you. In Christ, Dixie

As I read your updated blog this morning, I was brought to tears of joy because what better Mother's Day gift could you have gotten than to be able to hold your precious son. The picture of the two of you with Isaac clearly looking at his Mommy is priceless. Our contiued prayer is for Isaac to continue to move towards recovery and soon be able to go home with you and Jordan where he belongs. I'm sure I speak for everyone who has followed Isaac's blog, you have all become part of our extended family and we love you all. Praise to God for His love and grace.

Thank You Lord for the blessing of mother getting to hold baby in her arms. This just reminds us that everything is possible and it will happen in Your Timing .. You are such a faithful Lord and so lovingly awesome.

Just to see the 2 pics of Patience and Isaac brings tears .. tears of joy & happiness in a way of seeing the moment I know Patience been praying for and tears of just pure awe of our God. That He is so wonderful and abundantly pouring down blessings on the family. I know it is so, His awesomeness, because I see it and feel it each day but each time I read an update, its just so much more astounding.

Praise You Lord - we love you with all our heart and being.

Patience & Jordan - I know there will be many more days of holding Isaac. And the pic from Mother Day with Patience looking at Isaac. That pic just shows the peace and the love that is flowing from mom to baby thru the ultimate love of God.

Lord Father -- again, Thank You for the way you unconditionallyl bless, love and give to us.

While we have never met, you have been in my prayers for quite some time. I received word about Isaac through a relative in Florida. I have been keeping tabs on you all via this blog. You are close to my heart as I too had a son born with a heart defect who had surgery at birth. He is now 9 and wild!! I praise God for His love and grace as I see Isaac face and overcome hurdles in his young life! Please know that I, as well as many of my friends, continue to be in prayer for you all! Isaac is a beautiful miracle and God continues to use you all!

I am so happy you were able to spend Mother's Day holding your precious bundle of joy. I remember being able to hold Brandon for the first time and looking at that picture only makes me feel the same feelings all over again. I can feel the joy you were feeling at that moment. My thoughts are always with you and your family and I look forward to the updates and hope for good news. I get nervous when it has been a few days. (((HUGS)))
