Since being home, so many things have happened already, but one of the most exciting was going through all of the mail we received in the PO Box while we were away. It was so humbling seeing the generosity that has poured in from all corners of the globe and Hazel and the other kids had a blast opening everything! This picture gives you just a glimpse of what we have been receiving:
One of these gifts in particular truly has touched our hearts, and it was a painting done by a woman named Lisa Boros. She lives in Canada and found out about Hazel through the "Pizza Bonanza". She paints for a living and was so inspired by Hazel's story that she offered to do a painting of Hazel! Please go to her Facebook page at Lisa Lambertus Art & Design or her website www.lisalambertus.com and check out some of her beautiful work. Here is what she did of our little Hazelnut:
As we await the CT scan that will be happening next Tuesday, please keep praying for us, that we can enjoy this time as a family as much as possible and that we put God first, even when things get busy with such a full house! And please pray for Hazel to continue to feel well and for her strength to return to her in these weeks before surgery. Thank you all!
