We're still here!

Its been a LONG time since we've updated, but no worries, we're still here! No news is good news! Austin is staying busy and enjoying his summer!

"Hey friends! I'm doing well! The past few months have been busy, but I've loved every minute of it. At the beginning of May my Mommy graduated from the University of Montevallo! We are so proud of her. She was in school when I was born, but then because of my heart she decided to take some time off and had recently gone back to school. I am so proud of her for finishing school. Then a couple weeks ago we went to Myrtle Beach, SC for family vacation with Mommy, Daddy, and some family. It was LOTS of fun, I really liked playing on the beach. And yesterday I went to see Dr. King AND Dr. Colvin. Two doctors in one day! Dr. King thought I was doing well, but since I'm still having trouble with my appetite he wants to see me back in 3 months. Guess I need to eat a little more... maybe some candy will do the trick, ha! Dr. Colvin was pleased with everything he saw and said I was doing well! Everyone at his office kept talking about how cute I am, at least I made them laugh. I even knew everything Dr. Colvin and the nurses needed to do and kept telling them about their jobs. Dr. Colvin said I might be doing his job by the time I'm six years old, ha! I don't know about that, but maybe one day! Thank you for praying for me, I'm off to keep playing and enjoy my summer!" -through the eyes of Austin

As you can see, Austin is doing well and we're thrilled! Thank you for continuing to walk this journey with us! The updates will probably slow down at this point, but keep thinking about Austin and remembering him in your prayers! Thank you!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Austin!

We celebrated Austin's 3rd birthday at Chic-fil-a yesterday. He enjoyed that special time together and had fun opening some presents! He blew out his candles, and after one bite was ready to play. Such a boy, and full of energy!
Yesterday was Austin's birthday, but today is also another special day in our hearts as we remember three years ago today when we found out about Austin's heart. It was three years ago today that God drastically changed our lives, and oh what a journey it has been! We're blessed to have Austin here with us today, blessed by the friendships we've made and people we've met, and even more blessed by your prayers for Austin.
Thank you for being a part of our lives!
