Just came across your blog and am so blessed to read about your journey thus far. I know some of the road that you have traveled thus far... and you remind me of how tiring it can be. My son Ricky past away about a year and a half ago... but his long and noble fight changed my life forever.

Isaac is right where God wants him... as are you both. And I can't thank you enough for your vulnerability and willingness to share your beautiful son with us all.

Please visit Ricky's site if you have a chance:

He truly is a miracle..and an adorable one at that. May Gods love and peace continue to be greatly present to you! Knowing all too well those feeling of the NICU and the uncertainty that comes with it, I will continue to pray for your little Isaac for continued strength and health. Congratulations!

Hey, guys!!!

This is Sharon Jacobson, one of Patience's old friends from Annap EP. I have been following Isaac's story online and through Philip and Christie Johnson. Amazing how God is using this situation to totally saturate your lives with himself.

Anyway...I live in Chapel Hill/Durham now so I would love to visit! Pae, I ran into your mom at Christie's wedding. Anyway, I'm so glad he's doing better. Please give a call (410 491 6767) or email me (sharonlydia@yahoo.com) sometime. (I was trying to figure out how to email you from here, but couldn't! So..sorry for the public post.) I want to come visit you and your boy.

God is faithful!

LOVE, Sharon

i am sure you guys a so busy loving on that little one. would love to know how things are going. what are the next steps, surgeries, etc? want to start praying for continued healing as isaac prepares for what is to come.

Hello Patience and Jordan,
We've just come back from a holiday in Portugal (to a somewhat rain-soaked UK), but we checked on your blog while we were away to see how Isaac was doing.
So glad to see he's back home again, and looking so gorgeous! (Why is it that the boys always get the best eyelashes? It seems so unfair!). Hoping that he stays nice and stable for you and that you get a good spell at home before stage two.
Just wanted you to know that you are continuously in our prayers. Charlie still asks after Baby Isaac all the time!
Take care, all of you - hope you manage to get some rest.
With much love,
Alison, Pete and Charlie xxx

PS I don't know if you've done this already, but if you go to www.sitemeter.com you can put a visitor counter onto Isaac's blog (You just have to paste a bit of HTMP into your template). It doesn't cost anything, is really easy to do (if I can do it, anyone can!) and you can check all sorts of statistics about the visitors to your blog - which country/state they're from, how many people have visited, where they've been referred from, etc etc. They send you an email every week (but no other spam!) to let you know how many visitors you've had too! There's even a little map of the world with different coloured dots on to tell you where your visitors are on the planet ... it's great!!

Isaac, the Lord truly has a special plan for your life. I hope that these notes will show you how God has touched your life and the lives of your parents and that your lives have touched us as well. Jeremiah 29:11 is a verse that God has blessed me with and always know that God is there and loves you and has a special plan for you.
I am a friend of Becky Boyd who has a sweet precious daughter, Lauren, whom I also know and love.
May God's touch and blessings continue to be abundant.
Love,

I just logged onto your site which I found through Ricky's site. My son has HLHS as well as pulomonary atresia. They told me he would live to be two. He is thirteen.
It hasn't been easy, but it has been wonderful. You are all in my prayers.
