We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Vanessa's New Legs

Here she is up and moving. She still has a lot of progress to make in restoring her strength and learning how to walk properly in her new legs but we are off to a good start. Here are the pics of her trip back to CO and home again. I am so glad we rented a ranch style house and have a pool. Swimming has turned out to be a really great method of physical therapy for her.

Fifth plane ride in 3 months, I am now a pro.
Self portrait of the finished work. Thank you Dr. Erickson.
First steps in 8 weeks.
Hi Jerrod! Thanks for watching over me.
Freakish similarity?
Proud to be standing tall.
Thanks Ronald, the food and housing was great.
Dad especially liked the free Bic Macs.
No more motion sickness.
I am ready to be the pilot!
FINALLY, I can swim instead of being stuck in the house.
Yes. I am wearing a life jacket. Swimming in a pool is not the same as the  ocean.
