A year..........

Because the last 12 months....
The last 365 days.....
The last year....
has brought us blessings that we could have never imagined.

Because we witnessed the transformation of a boy that was always ours......
but struggled to exist.

We knew that inside of the pain,
inside of the hurt....
was something incredible.....

The chisel of life....
The chipping away moment by moment....
by the master sculptor Himself....
chip by chip...
has shaped and revealed something beyond amazing....

He began his transplant journey with a workup to see how his body could manage....
he fought through every test....
he struggled to run on the treadmill....
he smiled and cried all at the same time.....

A year later he has been made new....
and every step of the way has been a gift....
to us,
to him,
to everyone who has ever known him...
to the witnesses that watch from afar....

Because Parklen shows proof of miracles....
Parklen shines bright with the grace and love of God.....

Here is just a small peek into the past year.....
Let the celebration continue as we mark one year post transplant.........

I am having trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that it has been a year......
and as I type these words tonight, I remember the night before the transplant.....
and I can feel every single one of those same emotions from that night.....still....
because to be a mother is to feel....
and to feel is to experience....
and as I struggle to put into words that experience, I watch this video over and over again.....
and I have yet to watch it with dry eyes....
because although the words are hard to find right now....
the joy is not.
The undeniable work of God needs no words.....

One year!
and to many more........
