The purpose of this blog is to show how faith, my professional training and a healthy sense of humor taught me and continues to teach me that Jesus Christ is always in control. I am a fellow learner as this journey for my child unfolds. My wish is that Ben's legacy gives others hope where there seems to be none. It is also my desire that the information I have assimilated with my medical mind and filtered through a mother's heart gives practical ways to deal with this ever-changing chronic disease. Finally, for the many friends and family members who continue to follow Ben's life change after the injury, the story continues.

I visited Ben this last weekend. He is remembering more and more. With the new freedom allowed with his day passes from the recovery center, Ben's world continues to expand. He LOVES being around people. Attending church, going to restaurants and driving through the city are all new adventures. After a church service Ben said that he was filled with "joy in this place'. I often think of all the prayer requests over the last year asking for the joy that is manifesting before my eyes. The church that has take an interest in Ben took video footage of him last weekend as part of the pastor's sermon series on faith. What an honor! My prayer has always been that this story would be for good, to bring others to hope and faith in God.
