Lots of New Updates...and Updates on Kiss Kovers

 Wow....Been a long time since I have sat down to write on the blog but I have to say I have sincerely missed it. It is such great therapy. There were so many times while being in the hospital with Ryder that I could not speak but I could type. God just put the words through my hands. First and Foremost I want to let you all know that Ryder is doing really well. Our last visit with the doctor was good. His ECHO was not great but his blood pressures were good and he looked good.  He still takes medicine everyday to control his blood pressure and so far so good. We are just thankful this was all caught when it was so know we know when to go to the doctor and signs to look for.
 He is loving Soccer and so is Rowe. They are also enjoying their Pre-K class at First School this year. The boys turn 5 years old on September 29th and for their birthday they are collecting blankets for the children and families at Arkansas Children's Hospital. Ryder has another appointment early October so we will be delivering then. Many of you have asked when we were taking another load, so letting you all know. All of the blankets that everyone helped with in March and April are all gone. It is a huge need there so if you would like to help it would be so greatly appreciated.
 You all may remember about the sweet baby girl I wrote about that touched my heart while there and I found out yesterday that she went to be with Jesus. Oh that precious face, beautiful head of hair and always smiling! The blankets help a baby like that feel loved and feel peace and warmth. It broke my heart never seeing family come to see her but the nurses at Children's were her family and I cannot think of a better place for her to have felt so much love in her short life...and now she is not sick and dancing with the Angels.
The blankets also help the families that are there month after month have their own since of something that feels personal to them especially when they have come with just the clothes on their back and nothing to wear. Thanks to all that have followed us on our journey and I promise to write more on the blog and will definitely be updating you all after Ryder's next appointment. For now if you all would pray that he gets another good check up and that he continues to feel great.  Your prayers are beautiful blessings to us. Also you can email me at if you would like to donate a blanket. I leave you with one of my favorite verses...
                                         Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer
                                    and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the
                                     peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts
                                    and your minds in Christ Jesus.   - Philippians 4:6-7
