God sets the lonely in families

This post starts out sad..............

But it ends VERY HAPPY!! :o)

Noah developed an infection and tiny tear in his surgery area. He has a high tolerance to pain. So I knew when he was a little shaky...........something was not right. I found the problem- cleaned it and the Dr said it will be o.k. Except it really really hurts! I don't care if he has a high tolerance for pain! I know it hurts him! So BIG HUGS are given even more frequently!

Remember my post called "Did you ever wish more than anything in the whole world for a little brother?" (here~ http://theroaddownhome.blogspot.com/2013/04/did-you-ever-wish-more-than-anything-in.html

Well, Noah is Isaiah's big brother by 6 months! Look at the smile on Noah's face! Noah had no idea what a little brother was! But he got one! He got Isaiah! (and a few more! LOL) And he LOVES his little brother to pieces!!

This is Isaiah making his brother Noah laugh and laugh..............

AND laugh!!
What a doll! What JOY this boy gives to all who LOVE him!

Noah needs a lot of fluids. He caught the intestinal bug that MA brought home. We have all had it in one form or another. Noah has bad diarhea. He is drinking pedialite by the buckets! But the only way he drinks enough to flush out his infection and re-fill his potassium is with a bottle.

Noah is the only boy out of the 3 bottle fed boys who still will use a bottle in emergencies. It really helps. I wish Jakie and Mosie would take one when they had their surgeries. (Dad also calls Noah- Nosie- HA!)

So "little" brother lovingly gives Noah his bottle. Because its a guy thing, and they really really bond over guy stuff!



This is a pictorial of ~

Psalm 68:6 (NIV)
6 God sets the lonely in families,
    he leads out the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
                                          Thank You God!


  1. Poor little guy, having the infection and tear. Oh, I hurt for him. Hoping it clears up quickly.
    I love the pics of Noah laughing at Isaiah. Does he laugh out loud? Sure looks like he's got a great laugh!
    The "nurturing" Isaiah is doing while even just holding Noah's head and shoulders while he drinks from a bottle has to be so beneficial. Do you think it's adding to his little "infant" stage that was neglected all those years ago? I'm glad he will take a bottle and go through that stage somewhat now.
    You mentioned before about how the last 3 boys have grown in the short time they've been home, but look at the little bit of chubbiness on Noah's face when he's laughing! love it.

  2. I sure hope he is feeling better. Such sweet pictures. I have been going back and reading some of you old posts and have really enjoyed them.

  3. Your Isiah is one very special boy. Noah is very blessed to have such love and care from him!
