Monday evening. We are all much better here at Audra's place. We have gotten to know Zane as the wonder he is and we are all head over heals in love with him. He is a happy boy, doesn't fuss much. The only sign that there is something amiss is that he has to take his feedings in stages; he works hard at eating and has to stop and breathe a bit, catching up, before he finishes the little bottle. He breathes quickly and he appears to be panting but that doesn't last long, he settles down and sleeps well.
We all have our feet back on the ground and are snuggling and loving on him as we would with any new baby. The prayers and supportive emails and calls from friends and family have been wonderful. Believers from many, many different faiths are joining together in lifting this little one and his parents up to the Lord for strength and protection. Thank you all so much for your care and support. I know we and they will need it as this journey unfolds before and around us. The presence of Love itself walks with us and the gifts of those who have walked this way before us will bless us as we go.
