Gift from the Heart~ Joy to Love

this was an easy one too.
When we think of heart in our family,
there is one precious soul that shines bright!
ShayleeJoy!!!

we received her file to review and fell in love with her at first sight!
This was the first time I had ever heard the term
Tetralogy of Fallot.
For the next couple of days,
we spoke with numerous doctors and prayed like crazy.
In the midst of it all,
God spoke to MY heart about HER heart~
Proverbs 17:22
"A Joyful Heart is good medicine."
I felt Him telling me He created her broken heart

Just look at her now...
healthy and happy
even with a cath scheduled on February 15~
one day after Heart Day. :)

You may think WE gave her a gift from the heart
BUT
God actually gave her the gift of a 'repaired' heart
and gave us the gift of a forever daughter~
a gift from HIS heart.
A ShayleeJoyful Heart...
that we have all completely and forever fallen in love with!!!
So very thankful she is our precious heart baby gifted to us by God.
SO VERY THANKFUL!!!

  1. That is cool, and I can't imagine not loving her. She is just full of spunk and personality, and I haven't even met her in person!
