We rejoice with you over God's special little miracle, Gilead! We have been following along your path of life in prayer from Germany. We thank the Lord for your testimony and commit you to His continued lovingkindness and grace for the days ahead. Thank you for sharing your lives with us, and thank you, Jon, for including all the pictures on the slideshow. What a blessing and joy to watch.

God bless you and your family. We have been praying for all of you since we first heard of the you. When I got to church last night, the only question I was asked was "is the baby here yet?" I am so thankful he is fine and Amy is doing well. The faith of your family is beyond anything I have ever encountered. I am a friend of Cynthia Dickens and I'm so blessed to have come to know your family through this blog. My church is Roanoke Island Baptist Church in Manteo, NC. and we will continue to pray for all of you and especially Amy as she starts the next step of her treatment. Thank you for sharing your lives with us. Brenda Outlaw

words cannot express my grattitude to Our Almighty God and His great work in Gilead's safe arrival! What a little balm he must be. We know that this is only one more miracle He is doing in your lives at this time. Will continue to pray for His merciful hand to be upon the family and strength for Amy and Gilead so they can go home. The pictures are precious, thank you for posting them.

Yippe and Praise the Lord. We are thrilled for you both. You may not remember me - I coordinated Josh and Amber's wedding and you have been in my prayers. We will continue to bring you before our Father.

I cried when they announced your Little One is 5 lbs 2 oz!!! I specifically prayed he would be at least 5 lbs! I pray he learns to eat quickly, so you can bring him home! We praise God with you! Thanks for your posts and for letting all of us share this journey with you. We love all 9 of you, and we can't wait to meet Gilead! Ruth Bustamante

When I posted my other comment I had not seen the slide show. How precious all of your are. Amy, I could not help but cry when I saw your face. I have not seen it for so long. You were my first niece, and such a beautiful little girl. Now you are a beautiful woman with little girls and boys of your own who look so much like you. Of course I see Jon in them too, but I think I see you first. I love you all. Aunt Sarah
