A wonderful poem I ran across on another heart baby I follow. I loved it so had to share it with all of you.

"Its a beautiful day up in heaven. Jesus is rounding up his tiniest angels, to go live on earth, and be born.

One of the sweetest angels say to Jesus "I dont want to leave, I like it here, and I will miss you". He reassures the scared little angel that everything will be okay, and that she is just going for a visit.

She is still not swayed on this idea. So Jesus kneals down, and says "how about if you leave half of your heart here with me and take the other half with you, will that be okay". The angel smiles and says "I guess that will work".

But the little angel is still a little scared. She askes "will I be okay with only half of my heart?" Jesus replies, "of course you will, I have other angels there that will help out, and you will be fine."

Then Jesus gives the angel more details about his plan, he says "when you are born, your mommy will be scared, so you have to be strong, and when you feel weak just remember that I have the other half of your heart". "Enjoy your time with your family, play and laugh everyday."

"And when its time to come back to heaven, I will make your heart whole again" Always remember that you are not broken, just torn between two loves"

That poem is great! It is also so exciting that Jaden has learned how to crawl. What a milestone for him. All of his therapy is now showing it's colors. What fun things he will be into from now on. I try and tell myself when the kdis are getting into things that this is how they learn. He has a very new and interesting world to check out!

Kepp up the awesome work that all of you are doing!!
Love,
Krista

I love that poem! I think all our Hypoplast families should have a chance to read that. I can't believe Jaden is crawling! Next time I see him, he is going to be running around and cruising on bikes in the hallways with his big sister and brother. I'm glad to hear things are going well with all of you. Post more pictures of that cute baby of yours!!

Hi,
I thought that I would check in to see how things are going. I gathered all of the pop tabs that we have around and we are going to get them to McD's. The kids love to put them in the collection container.
This weather has been so noce and I bet you guys have been out and about enjoying it.
Are you planning on coming to IA when Kelly and family are there? That would be so much fun!
Take care and we hope all is well.
Lots of love and hugs from Mankato.
