A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

Sept. 12: Max Liver transplant update

Max's transplant is complete. They are currently working on closing him up. Everything went well. The donor liver was a great fit and in great condition.
There was a couple hurdles. The surgeon had a difficult time with the number of veins that formed going to the liver. Also, in a couple places dead cancer cells stuck themselves to other organs.
Overall though he is very pleased with how things went.

Thanks everyone for your prayers and words of encouragement. Please keep them coming. Max has some difficult days ahead of him.


  1. Prayers for full recovery, prayers for patience, prayers for acceptance. Prayers for all. God is Good all the time.

  2. Have been praying since I heard the news, and will not stop!
