The Touch Felt 'Round The World

Jordan & I eagerly await the day when we can tell Isaac of all God did in his life, of the people his journey has touched, & how far reaching his story has traveled. If you've been impacted by his story or follow this blog, we ask that you post your name, city, state &/or country following this post so that we can show Isaac one day of all the lives he's touched. Even if you usually don't leave any comments or don't want to put your name, please let us know if you've been following his journey by letting us know where you're from. USA, India, Guam, UK...it'll be amazing to see where his story has traveled!

I have followed your story from the beginning. I was lucky to have family who passed your story on to me. I have a baby who was born shortly after you on March 1. He has been my inspiration much as I know you have been your parents inspiration. Thank you for sharing your story with us all and teaching us what true love nd compassion is. I am forever grateful. I pray everyday for you all to be as healthy and happy. May God bless you and always watch over you. You have become a pillar of strength and a model of love to us all!

We love you guys so much and can't wait to meet precious little Isaac. I just know that he will grow to be healthy and strong and we'll be able to see our little ones playing together!!! God has done such a miracle through him already and I can't wait to see what he has in store for Isaac. You are such an encouragement to us, showing your faith in God and never faltering. God Bless and we love you!!!

Home! Wow, God is so faithful in every circumstance. How amazing to witness His power working in your lives! Though we've never met, we too, spent time at UNC with our son. Your blog has been a trip down memory lane and a reminder that God is at work in every facet of our lives.

For those of us who have gone on this journey (via the Internet) with the Leinos . . . we will NEVER deny the POWER OF PRAYER!!!

P.S. Charla's brother, Gregory, battled the same thing back in 1973 when nothing could be done. He passed away at age 4 1/2 at the Children's Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. We don't know it for sure, but believe that Gregory helped advance knowledge of what to do in these cases from what was learned from him a long time ago. Praise the Lord for Baby Isaac!

Jordan, Patience, and Isaac:
You do not know me but I feel as if I know you all personally. You have made an impact on my life daily and I rejoice with you now that Isaac is home! We began attending C3 this past December, but it wasn't until late February that I received an email with a link to your blog. Since then I have checked it regularly and my 3 year old daughter prays for Isaac every night.
I do not think there are adequate words to express the courage and faithfulness you guys have shown. On many occasions I have read and wept and prayed for your family. Every time has been a blessing for me and a reminder that God's timing is perfect. I am so impressed by your faithfulness and you are all truly an inspiration! Your family and your journey have changed my life!

I have followed your blog since the second week of your life Isaac. My friends go to your parents church, C3, and I have been there a couple of times too. I go to a simular church, and put your family on our prayer list as soon as I started following the blog. I know many people from our church prayed for you as well.
I went on vacation from the 9th till the 17th, and had no way to follow your progress. I really missed out on alot of great news, and was sooo happy to hear that the Leino family was finally home. The tears flowed as I read all the updates, and saw all the new photos. I am 41, and have never been able to have children, so Isaac has become a child I have grown to love through the great power of our God.
Bless you little Isaac and your loving parents. Thank you Lord for giving the world the Leino family. They have forever touch so many lives through Your amazing love and grace.
Look foward to many more wonderful updates!!!!!!!!!

My eyes fill with tears as I write this. I have never met either of you, but was asked to pray for baby Isaac from a friend of mine who attends C3. However, after checking your website each day, I feel as though I known you all along. What a blessing to finally have your sweet baby at home. I pray God's richest blessing continue to fall upon you. There is no doubt that the Lord has a mighty plan for little Isaac...after all he has already touched so many lives. He sure has blessed my life. Congratulations!

I am so happy that you are all finally home. God has surely kept his hand on your family!
