I look at the picture I posted earlier today and am just amazed that God has given us these blessings. How unworthy we are to receive His trust to raise these 7 beautiful children. Thank You, God.
We took the boys to the eye doctor on Monday. Here’s the lowdown…
Matthew’s vision is within normal limits and won’t need glasses, but he has some little bumps/growths around one of his eyes and on his eyelid. It’s some sort of viral thing that has to be lanced and scraped until it bleeds and scars and heals. And both tear ducts are either not working or are non existent. Either way, he’ll have surgery on both eyes in a couple of weeks to get rid of the virus and to correct the tear duct problem.
Micah is nearly blind it seems. The normal farsightedness for children is 1.5 diopter. Micah is 8.5 in one eye and 9.5 in the other. He got his glasses today. They are thick and make his eyes really big but he is EVEN CUTER than before! He loves the glasses. He just points at them and smiles and giggles. He has started grabbing our faces and forcing them to look at him and he just stares at us. Wow. He is an amazing boy.
Every since we’ve had him, we’ve assumed he has some sort of vision problem or depth perception problem. He wouldn’t cross thresholds, or if the terrain changed from cement to grass or if there was a big crack in the side walk or something he would sit down and scoot. We didn’t have any idea that his vision was so bad though. He’s been looking at everything and I think he’s just amazed. I wear glasses and have very poor vision with them but his vision is even worse than mine. I can’t imagine living without the glasses. In fact, I couldn’t. The poor little guy. Thank You, God for letting us help him in this way!
So, more pics are coming soon…we got some great shots at the Down syndrome Easter Egg-stravaganza.
The Dickinsons are home and things are going pretty well for them! They still need to raise some money toward their adoption expenses. Also, they are having a shower at FBC Moore SUNDAY, APRIL 19 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. (come and go) in the Atrium.
Thanks for your love, prayers and support!
Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
