R.J.

I am so sorry for taking so long to update. R.J. has really been at a stand still. Until......last week. R.J. got moved to the rehab facility in Bethany. He is getting physical and occupational therapy 2 hours everyday. He took 25 steps with his walker. That was a great big deal! He is a living, now walking, miracle.

Please keep praying for his physical and psychological healing. The person who did this is still not arrested yet. He also cannot have anything other than TPN right now so he is getting no nourishment to his small bowel right now. That needs to happen.

Thanks so much for all the prayers. Please for his brothers Connor and Bryson. We had the boys for a week and they shared with us "what happened". This was such a heart wrenching story I can't begin to share right now. The abuse was to all the boys, R.J. just got the worst of it.
Please pray.
Thanks,
Lora

I'm thankful to hear that he has taken a few steps! Amen!

I know he has a long way to go, but I'm praising the Lord for the distance he's already been!!
