We hit $4,000!
Friends who had already donated before and have done other things behind the scenes that they didn't want credit for, donated again and got us to this goal! We have been so blessed by this couple and their faith, their generousness and their example.
We set the goal of $8,000 because the actual stem cells will cost $6,000 in advance. But then we have the plane tickets, hotel, and travel necessities for taking Liam. I am nervous about how it will work traveling with him. He has to have his own seat on the place even though he can't hold up his head (for takeoff and landing) and I know his car seat won't fit in it. We will have to take a stroller and the car seat. And then he's on a special diet so we will have to worry about getting his food there too. It's a lot to deal with and if ya'll knew how nervous this whole process makes me feel...well, it isn't something that is being taken lightly. But it is something that I have felt we need to do to help Liam. We've prayed about it and felt the Lord leading us in this direction. He's put people in our path with the experience, knowledge, and love of kids with special needs to prepare us for this step. Getting my mind wrapped around it and then getting me humbled to ask for help, putting generous, faith-filled, loving people in Liam's circle have all been important steps that God has taken care of along the way.
We are faithfully praying for the last half, the largest hurdle, to still be provided. And we are still praying for healing for Liam that only God can do.
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
Matthew 4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought to him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
Psalm 33:22 May your limitless love be with us Lord as we put our faith in you.
Thank you to everyone who has helped out so far. From the big to the small, you all have played an integral part in getting Liam help and we appreciate you all.
