Surgery for Sure in September

Dr. AngelWe finally received a firm answer that Adeline will have head surgery soon. Since we’ll be living in Peru for an extended period of time, Dr. Angel (to the right) thought it would be best to go ahead and remove Adeline’s knot. He is not sure now if it is an osteoma or a dermoid. We go back to Dr. Angel September 6th and schedule her procedure. Without a doubt we’ll keep you posted.

IMG_1918* Abigail and Adeline’s Grandmother J made a surprise visit last week. She delivered an early birthday present from Aunt Ashley, Allen’s sister. See stool to the left. Abbie now brushes her teeth in style.

* This Thursday and Friday, our family is going to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We’ll celebrate Sandi’s birthday (Aug.13) and our 6-year wedding anniversary (Aug. 14). Abbie can’t wait. Adeline has no clue.

* Peru is getting closer! As of today, we are at 82% of our support. All praise be to the King of the nations who is raising our support. The One who has called us is also the One who provides our partners. And we love our partners!

We are so thankful for your prayers and support. Please keep on praying! And tell us how we can pray for you

Getting a Second Opinion

Here's a quick update on Adeline's knot. We went to see Dr. Richard Allen Smith last Monday. He strongly encouraged us to take Adeline to Dr. Angel, who is a specialist with children in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. So next Tuesday (August 9) we have an appointment with him. We'll update more latter.
