Thank you for your prayers and support. We are at the U of M Ped ICU. His liver is failing, and they are doing lots of tests to try to find out what is causing it. He is going to have a biopsy in a few hours. He has been put on the transplant list in case he needs a transplant.

  5. Hi there. We are in the same PICU with our daughter, Aaryn, who may have cancer. Your site came up after not being logged off in the family lobby. Anyway, we are praying for you as well!

  8. I have been thinking about you and praying for you all day. May the Great Physician wrap his arms around all three of you and give you all strength. Little Eli is amazing and beautiful even in the hospital! Let us know if you need things taken care of at home while you are away.

  11. Kip & Cat,

    You know the prayers continue to be offered. Trusting you are sensing God's arms around you as you walk this journey. I've been using email to update one of your "prayer teams". Hope you don't mind if I continue calling you once/day. The song you used as a caption to Eli's baptism photos speaks Truth into this situation. Remember that God's ways are perfect (Psalm 18:30). Love, Trena

  13. Kip and Cat,
    We have never met, but heard of your little boy from Trena. I am also an adoptive mother of 6 children with special needs. As I read your blog, I was struck with your quote about not seeking an easy life, but one with purpose. Your purpose is very clear right now. To love, care for and pray for this sweet little boy. You are being His hands and feet by making sure he gets the medical care he needs. It is not your job to figure out the problem, but to be the heart of Jesus that Elijah hears when you hold him to your chest. May His love continue to flow through you.
