Philip's Story...Part One

Tonight I wanted to start my History of Philip....Not so sure where to start ...so I decided to start in the very beginning.

I am so excited to share this journey with each of you. I will admit that there may be some parts of the story that are harder to tell. Even there I had to catch myself. It is not a story. It is the life of my oldest son who I love more then life itself.

I think sharing his story with all of you will be so good for me. There are things that I have buried deep and I need to share to deal with. So please be patient with me as I go through this process of re living some wonderful and some sad days of our life with what I call the Miracle of Philip. I promise you if you stay with me through this story you will not be sorry. It will renew your faith in hope, and miracles. It also would be a blessing to have your support as I recall these days. And as a added extra it will help you understand more about Philip's medical condition and how to help pray for his medical needs now.

So here is where I decided to start...


This is a picture from my baby shower for Philip. This was a very special day. Maybe a little more special in more ways then just the normal special baby shower day...

I had 3 miscarriages before I got pregnant and had Philip. Back years ago they did not have all the advances they have today with maternity care. In fact the rule was one MC was a fluke..Two was a worry..Three and you might not be able to have a baby ever. So when I got pregnant with Philip I felt like the luckiest women in the worlds. And to this day I am still the luckiest women in the world to be his mom. I never thought I would ever be a mom. And God blessed me with not only being a mom. But being a mom to the most special young man. He is strong and special. And most of all he is my son.

Please check back for Part two..and feel free to ask any question along the way.

Very much looking forward to reading about your journey through Philip's life and medical journey and to see the ways that God has used his story in all of your lives. Thank you so much for sharing with us. As we are on our own journey with our daughter, it is such an encouragement to hear about others struggles with health issues and to see how amazing our God is in the midst of these trials. I will be following and look forward to learning more about our Savior through your Philip and your family :)

Staying with you through the life of you son... before and now with the re-telling/re-living it here in your blog. I already know I will not be sorry... from what I've seen and heard so far HE is a wonderful young man...

Yay!! I've been looking forward to Philip's story starting. Great idea with the baby shower picture. Your hair sure is a little darker and pouffy! Hmmm.... I'd say the blonde is a better fit. :) Well, I guess we'd better not be picky. Right now we'll just be thankful for hair, right.

Back to Philip, I'm really excited about learning more of his story. This is such a good idea to fill us in on him. Anxiously awaiting part 2!

I can see that not only is Philip a blessing to you - but I'll bet if I asked him YOU are indeed a blessing to him!

I'm looking forward to reading his journey ...... I want to thank you for sharing it with us.

When God picked you to be his mother he knew he selected right.

God Bless you!

This was just sent to me via e-mail .... how appropriate:

When you are DOWN to nothing... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible!
