Brooks and Isaac are home!!

Hey all,

Not much time, but I wanted to post a quick message to tell you all that Isaac and Brooks made it home last night at about 8pm. Jen and I decided we wanted to spend our first night home with the boys alone, but after one very fun and exciting night, Jen's mom is coming up this afternoon to give us a hand.

It is an amazing joy to have two of our boys home so quickly, we are praising God for this amazing day in our lives.

Please pray for Henry and Clark. They are doing well so far, but need to begin gaining weight and eating better. They are really having trouble getting them to gain, so we ask you to join us in going to the Great Physician to allow them to begin to grow as needed.

Thank you all, here is our first complete family picture since the boys were born, then one of Brooks and Isaac when they got home.

First Family Photo!

What wonderful news!! Jen, I'm glad you're feeling better. My heart ached for you, hurting after the many weeks waiting for the boys. I just wanted to let you know that the prayers will continue for all of you! The photo is precious! Can't wait until all are home together! PTL!

Hey you guys...Praise the Lord!! What a wonderful picture. We of course will continue to pray and make sure and save some of g'ma Janet's energy for the other two when they come home. Take care of yourselves and give the boys kisses for us.

I had a feeling that I should have "commented" yesterday and now I know why. As of today you probably won't have time to brush your teeth much less read your messages. :)
Know that you are in our hearts, minds, & prayers.I can't wait to get my hands on all 6 of you!
Much love, Pam

So glad to hear such great news! Praying that Henry & Clark will be soon to follow. We'll be praying for your strength, for the boys to eat better and gain weight, and for Grandma! I know she will be great help and will take some of the pressure off both of you.
Praise God for all that He has done!

Hey guys,
I am so thrilled to see God working in a mighty way. I will be praying extra hard because you have two at home and two still in the hospital; you will need extra strength to fit the new time schedule. Are you allowed to take Isaac and Brooks back to the hos. with you or will they have to stay home? We will be praying Henry and Clark get home SOON so it doesn't become an issue. Love you lots, Leona xox

To all interested moms out there:

I would like to invite you to participate in a research study of parenting views and practices. Dr. Kim White-Mills and Dr. Catherine Dobris of IUPUI (both are moms) are interested in understanding what sources parents find useful in their parenting practices, how parents use different parenting information, and what views parents across the county hold regarding parenting issues.

Congratulations on the homecoming of Brooks and Isaac. We will continue to pray for Henry and Clark. Bill would like to know what we can get for you and your family. Anything that comes to mind that you really need?

God Bless,

Jen & Brad,
What sweet pictures! Awesome news too. We will continue to keep Henry & Clark in our prayers that they will grow like little weeds! LOL. Tomorrow is our Calvary shower for you too. I don't imagine that you will be ready to handle that just yet and that perhaps your Mom will be your 'stand in' for you tomorrow. But I'm sure we will get to see lots of pictures to update us on Grandma's little grandsons! :-)
I pray you will continue to gain strength yourself for the busy days ahead. God is sooo good to provide such a wonderful network of folks to help meet your daily needs. We are all just extensions of God's loving arms and hands...touching others lives in service to one another. Enjoy being loved on and the many blessings God has in store for you and your growing family.

Luv you tons,
The Stelzers
