You can read the book God's Miracle of Sebastian at no charge and hopefully be encouraged by our story.

Sebastian came to our home for the first time last week and I took him to our church one week ago today. He celebrated his first birthday in July.

How can I express how deeply humbled I am, how filled with joy and gratitude for you who have prayed for Little One or to our Saviour for His unending love and mercy.

"God's Miracle of Sebastian" is a self published book the Lord has led me to write which chronicles His mighty miracle. Dearest Little One will soon celebrate his first birthday and we are humbled and thankful beyond words for His loving mercy to us.

Sebastian now sits up, drinks 8 ounces from a bottle, laughs, and even eats!He still wears his foot braces and oxygen at night. He no longer needs an NG tube.

We must tell of His great work!If you are interested in knowing more about the book or in receiving an electronic copy of it, please email me at

Of course, there is no cost. If you are interested in a hard cover copy, please let me know.

Please do continue to pray for our Little One as well as the many others who are in need of your prayers.

Please also pray for those parents whose Little Ones have gone on early to be with the Lord.

Your prayers mean more than we can ever tell you.

The cried to you and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed.

It is truly impossible for me to go to bed tonight without sharing this wonderful news.

The docs gave Rob and Taylor the ok to take Sebastian to church, so yesterday on Palm Sunday, precious Little One went to church for the first time. At a little over 8 months of age, he went to church with his Mommy and Daddy and brother!

Our omnipotent and loving Lord is truly mighty to save!

They cried to You and were saved. In You they trusted and were not disappointed.

I will praise Your name, O Lord!

I have been unable to access the blog to keep you updated about Little One because I lost my password, but we cherish your continuing prayers.

God continues to bless dear little Sebastian. He still has a feeding tube and still is on oxygen and still has little boots on his feet. He continues to grow and continues to smile!
He has had two hospital stays and we pray for no more illness.

I have been away from him for two weeks but return soon and cannot wait to see him again!

God’s miracle of Sebastian affects me no less today. Soon it will be a year since the doctors gave a zero percent chance (as a recent email I reread from Rob stated).

Our most wonderful heavenly Father is in the business of miracles and in the business of building our faith.

Yesterday I read that early email from Rob in which he said the experts said there was basically a zero per cent chance for Little One. I also read our pastor’s response to a letter I had written asking his counsel on the counsel I was giving. He said, “and as you pointed out there is always the possibility of a miracle.”

I wept from deep within myself as I read those two phrases yesterday….zero per cent chance….the possibility of a miracle.

I turned on my CD and knelt as the choir sang:

O God our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast
And our eternal home.

Under the shadow of Thy throne,
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defence is sure

My puppy dog Russell came to me as I sang with the choir. And he licked away my tears as they fell.

They cried to You and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disapp

Praises be to our merciful God, precious little Sebastian was dismissed from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon. They think he had pneumonia. Thanks so much for your continuing prayers for him and his health.

For those of you who are led, please pray for serious health matters facing two of our other family members.

They cried to You and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed

This is the text message I received from Rob at 5 AM this morning. Please pray to our merciful and omnipotent Lord to heal our precious Little One…

“Sebastian had 103 temp at 1 this morning. Called the doc and she told us to go to Georgetown. I’ve been here since 2. They are admitting him at this time. His white blood cell count is 25000. 4000-10000 is normal”

They cried to you and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed

I cannot go to sleep this nineteen week birthday of Sebastian’s without telling you what his three year old cousin said when he spent the night with us couple of weeks ago. The grandchildren call me C.C. and Nathan is thrilled when he can spend the night at C.C. s and of course she is too!

Nathan has not met his cousin yet and has only seen pictures of him and has heard stories. Mick has enlarged the picture that was on the last blog posting and has it hanging in our kitchen.

As Nathan looked at the picture this particular night, I could not imagine what he was thinking as he saw the tubes in the nose of his little cousin. He had a most interesting look on his face, one totally unfamiliar to me.

I looked at Nathan and explained that the reason for the yellow tube in Sebastian’s nose is that he cannot yet eat by himself so Rob and Taylor feed him through the tube.

Nathan’s gaze seemed more intense. I tried so hard to explain what he was seeing. How could his little mind comprehend this? Then I pointed out the additional tubes going into each of Sebastian’s nostrils and explained that he cannot yet breathe on his own so those tubes give him oxygen.

Nathan took a deep breath and looked up at me. Joy filled my soul when little three year old wisely said,

“But, he’s smiling, C.C.”

They cried to You and were saved; in You they trusted and were not disappointed
