Facing The Fire With Unwavering Faith

Abby begins the most difficult phase of her treatment tomorrow. Please be in prayer for this sweet little girl and her family.

Just found your blog through the awards. Your daughter is precious. We are also trying to adopt.

Thanks, she's a MESS. We're thinking about trying to adopt again soon, too. Possibly a one or two-year old, so they'll be closer in age to Sophs. (Plus, that way we'd know ahead of time if they had reflux! Ha!) =)

It's a trying, but rewarding adventure. The wait it the hardest part. Good luck!

I am adding Abby and her family to my prayer list. Thank you for bringing her situation to the attention of others.

Thanks for adding her to your prayer list, Richard. You can add the "Praying for Abby" button to your blog, too, if you want to help spread the word even more. If you go to the Rigg's website, the instructions are pretty easy to follow.

I notice you're from Mena. Did you find me through someone locally? Always interesting to find out how people find their way here (and sometimes a little scary - ha!). ;)

So sorry you weren't the winner this year, but there is always next year. Keep me posted about your next adoption plans. I need some ideas. Our Chinese adoption is taking wayyyyy to long and we'd like to fit one inbetween if at all possible.

Stopped by from the awards noms. The title caught my eye. I have had 2 fluxers. One who is 3 now and the other 4 weeks and just getting the right meds. Both milk allergies, too. Plus, we're in Bosque Farms, NM. Small world, huh? Sorry about your fortune, but it is nice to know you're not the only one. Good luck!!!

At three and a half, Sophie ate her first bite of food. 'Til then, she was syringe-fed tiny amounts of formula throughout the day. She had severe reflux (vomited, of the Rocket Launch variety, throughout the day), feeding aversions (a.k.a Would-Rather-Be-Lit-On-Fire-Than-Eat), an INSANE gag reflex (the mere smell of food would cause her to go into a gagging frenzy), and constipation problems.

I never, EVER thought she would be where she is now. There truly is a light at the end of the long, barfy tunnel.

We love Dr. James Bruce (West Mesa Pediatrics) and Dr. Edward Rose (UNM - Ped GI). I know it would be a bit of a drive from Bosque Farms, but, if you're looking for a couple of good docs, those two are WAY worth it!

Thanks for popping in and saying hi. =)
