Birthday Pictures

You're a little piece of heaven
You're a golden ray of light
And I wish I could protect you
From the worries of this life
But if there's one thing I could tell you
It's no matter what you do
Hold to Jesus
He's holding on to you

The world will try to tell you
That might is more than right
That beauty's on the outside
And being good's a losing fight
But remember what I've told you
Because the world will make you choose

Hold to Jesus
He's holding on to you

Hold on to Jesus
Cling to His love
Rest deep in His mercy
Whenever things get rough
Don't lose sight of His goodness
And don't ever doubt this truth
That when you hold on to Jesus
He's holding on to you

Hear me dear Jesus
Rock this little one to sleep
Keep him close when he's scared
And give him grace when he's weak
I know he'll stumble
But I know he'll make it through

If You hold to him just like You said You'd do

Hold him, Jesus
So he'll hold on tight to You

Dear family,

28 august 2007 my son "Dante Andre Marie" was born. A few days later the docters told me that they would like to look at his chromosomes. A week later they told me that Dante has got a deletion of chromosone 12, q15-q21.2 They also told me that they never heard of it before and that they cant give me a prognose. I search on the internet and I found tis Journey of your beautifull son Noah. Maybe you can contact me. You are my only hope for some more information. I also got a website but I dont think you understand the language because its in dutch. ( My email adres is:
On my site ive got a poezie, I would give it to you, it gives me a good feeling.

Heavens Very Special Child

A meeting was held quite far from earth
"It's time for another birth",
Said the angels to the Lord above,
"This special child will need much love"
His progress may seem very slow
Accomplishments he may not show
And he'll require extra care
From the mother he meets way down there.
He may not run or laugh or play
His thoughts may seem quite far away
In many ways he won't adapt
And he'll be known as handicapped.
So let's be careful where he's sent
We want his life to be content
Please, Lord find the mother who
Will do a special job for you
She will not realize right away
The leading role she's asked to play
But with this child sent from above
Come stronger faith and richer love.
And soon she'll know the privilege given
In caring for this gift from heaven
Her precious charge, so meek and mild
Is heavens very special child

kind regards,
Maaike Holterman, the Netherlands.

Praise God! We're so glad you guys are home and doing well. I love the birthday pictures. He's getting so big and I'm still loving his hair.

May God continue to bless and keep you all in HIS care. Hugs and kisses all the way from Charlotte, NC!
