The J.P. Story: Uncertainty before birth

Baby J.P.

Dad’s note: In honor of J.P.’s 12th birthday, I’m beginning “The J.P. Story,” which looks back at our journey through birth and now approaching teen-hood. I hope you enjoy. The first chapter looks at life before the trip to the delivery room. It came…

Praying for healing

Kent Morton, Claire Metz

I’m not sure what to title this post, so I’m going to write it first and see what comes to mind. I am very lucky to be surrounded by some amazing people in my life. I hold them in high regard and thank them…
