Davey ready for church with his cousins
Sleeping in her brother's house
There were many tearful goodbyes as Millie's parents left to fly back home. Tomorrow there will be a few more as Davey and I fly home and Millie's brother leaves on a business trip for the week. We are so thankful for our sister-in-law who has turned her house upside down to accommodate our needs and will continue to care for Millie until she is cleared to return to Utah.
As I reflect upon the events that have transpired in our lives over the past month, I'm astounded at the miracles that have taken place. We never could have made it to this point without the love, faith, prayers, and actions of so many. President Monson once noted that "the Lord shapes the back to bear the burden placed upon it." I know that our family has been sustained and strengthened beyond our natural abilities through the atonement of the Savior, and through the administrations of all of you. I know that Maggie's back has been shaped, and now reshaped, to bear the burdens that will be placed upon it throughout her life. I can't wait to meet her (but I do hope to wait to meet her til July). I pray that God will bless all of you to be equal to the burdens placed upon your backs as He has us.
