Dr. Buckmiller, Jax's surgeon, is traveling to Africa to give kids born with cleft lip and palate the same chance that Jax had. We are excited to follow her blog while she is there.
Emily ( who we call "our" nurse, aka Jax's valentine) asked for pictures of Jax's progression of healing since birth, to take with them to show the nurses in Africa. They only see the patients during and right after surgery. They don't get to see the process of healing that awaits. So it was really cool to be able to go through all of Jax's pictures and see just how far he's come.
I also know that part of why God allows us to go through things is to be able to testify abo
ut it, to help others. It makes me smile to know those nurses in Africa will see Jax's sweet face when he was born and seeing Jax's sweet face when he got a practically new one.
Going through all of Jax's pictures, I found three that I really need to share:
This is Jax's as a newborn. This is the reality of this blessed child's condition.
This is Jax shortly after his lip repair.
This is Jax now. Almost fully recovered.
Then your light shall break forth like morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD shall be your gaurd.
