We are so excited about Isaiah's first birthday this Saturday! A little over a year ago, we were given little hope, told not to expect much. And now, here we are celebrating a year, rather than only 2 months (our original request from God). We are also very excited for you to meet God's little miracle and for us to meet some of you for the first time! It'll be nice to catch up with those we have not seen in years. It amazes me how God has used this little baby to bring so many people together. We had no idea what God had in store for us when He designated us to be Isaiah's parents. This journey has not always been easy, but it has been blessed!

Just a couple of requests for this Saturday:
1) If you or one of your kids are sick, we ask that you stay home.
2) Please wash your hands upon arrival to the Timothy Center and use Purell (hand sanitizer) throughout the day to try to keep the amount of germ exposure down for Isaiah.
3) When meeting Isaiah, please only touch the top of his head, his feet, or any part of his back side. We ask that no one touch his face or hands, since he puts his hands in his mouth.
4) No kissing!

I hope you understand our precautions and don't take it personally. We are just trying to keep Isaiah healthy and out of the hospital. We appreciate your cooperation!!!!!!!!!

In case you lost or deleted the evite, the party is Sat., Feb. 20th, and is held at Bethel Baptist Church (in the Timothy Center) 754 East Rockhill Rd., Sellersville, PA 18960. There is very limited cell phone reception at the church. If you try to reach us and can't get through, we ask that you try calling the church at 215-536-9200. Family is to meet from 1-3pm and friends from 3-5pm (unless you were told otherwise). Can't wait to see you!!!!!!!


  1. Hi Joy -
    I dont know if you recall meeting me at CHOP, my 6-month old son Derek and I were just down the hall from you and Isaiah, and you and I had a nice chat by the window. I FINALLY found your contact details! I misplace everything :-)
    I am SO glad to hear that Isaiah has gained some weight since CHOP. That is fantastic news. You all must be thrilled. How was his 1st birthday party?? Sounds like it was much needed and I hope it was all you wanted it to be.
    You have been in our thoughts and prayers since we met and I will continue to think wonderful thoughts for you and your boys and to check in here to see how you are all doing!
    God Bless,
    Meg (Derek's mom)
