So thankful...

'This week we had some friends in New Zealand lose their new baby. His name was Ethan and he was 18 days old when he passed away. He had a diaphragm hernia (hope I got that right). They have been blogging each day and sharing their lives with everyone who has been reading. I have been so moved by their faith in God and their love for their sweet boy. The way they have chosen to react to this situation has been a reminder of God's goodness and faithfulness. How can you say "God is great" when you have lost your child? Only because you know what he has done for you and you don't live for this world. Thank you Marcus and Toni for sharing your lives and for encouraging me. I have found myself more thankful for my own son this week because of your example. Here are some pictures of Liam from this week.
Yep, no socks in the cold.
Funny new face that he does.

"Tada! Look at me in the clean laundry!"

Liam loves V8!! He obviously takes after his grandpa!

Takes after his dad too, always looking for something in the fridge....

He loves my toothbrush.

Cute little boy


  1. We are really honoured by your comments Dana - thank you. Thank you guys for following our journey, for all of your prayers and the lovely flowers you sent us.

    These are the first photos we have ever seen of Liam and he looks like an awesome little man - cherish every day you have with him.

    Toni and I are still deciding where to next, but there is quite a high possibility we might do a bit of travel - who knows we might even make a trip to Philly! Would be really great to see you and Brian again and to meet your son.

    Love Marcus and Toni

  2. so your words that first shot in the stroller...enjoy...can't wait to see you guys:)

  3. V8 eh? Eggplant? Liam eats better than I do! Ha ha! Glad you guys are well and lots of love to you.

  4. Hey guys,

    So great to see your pics. Who took the black and whites of you guys, they are gorgeous. Emma enjoyed seeing the video and pics of Liam with his enthusiasm for life. Are you settling in, meeting some friends? Take care,
    Christa & Emma
