JONATHAN IS 18 YEARS OLD TODAY!

Jonathan officially turns 18 today. Born on Friday, 6 February 1997.

I learned that the date and day in 2015 is exactly the same as in 1997. So this literally brings me back to the day when the trauma birth happened.

Fast forward to 2015, I'm thankful to Daddy God for the progress that Jonathan has made. From an intelligent young boy to now, a more intelligent young man.

Yesterday, caregivers from Starpal came with an ice cream cake for Jonathan.  And the surprise we got was a special guest : Dr Chong!  SereneW didn't tell me.  Wanted to give us a surprise and we trully were! Well...I was :)

I'm thankful to God for this great team.  We had lunch and good chat (mostly chatters from me hahaha).  But it was a relaxed atmosphere and Jonathan did well too. Thank you Lord, continue to bless this special team with strength and wisdom.

Dr Chong, as usual, was the joker, asking Jonathan if he wanted home schooling (to which Jonathan kept staring at him), followed by asking Jonathan if he wanted to meet girls since he's turning 18. haha.  Of course Jonathan said no.  Only mommy is enough. haha!  Thanks Jonathan :)

While chatting with Dr Chong today, he asked me when did I quit my job to become a full time caregiver. I said "since Jonathan was born".

Now as I think about it, I tell myself "wow...18 years". It's been a long time. What have I done? But to see Jonathan as he is today, there is a sense of "achievement". I pray for more good things to come for him.

Thank you Lord...we will continue to walk in faith, full of your grace and wisdom for Jonathan, to be able to speak more words other than "no!" and to put on his shoes and walk. For we look not at what was past but to know that the finished work of Jesus at the cross has given us victory over every obstacle, sickness and diseases. We look forward to restoration, we look forward to joy and we look forward to greater glory.

Thank you especially to both of our (H's & my) family members and also friends for your constant encouragement and support. Jonathan knows he is loved by everyone near and far. We love you all too! ♥♥♥

Here are some pictures we took today:





Thanks for visiting. God bless everyone you richly!
