In April, 2010, when Andrew was 2 1/2, a tumor was discovered behind his eye. The tumor was removed, but it was found to be an aggressive cancer. He endured seven months of chemo and six weeks radiation. In December of 2010, the day after his last treatment, he was rushed to the ER with an almost fatal bacterial infection. He survived.

He is now seven-years-old!! I don't visit here much, because during the ordeal, this is where I dumped everything--my rage, my fear, my sadness, my ugly, my hope, my everything. But I want all of you who supported and prayed for us to hear his updates. You helped me survive, and I am deeply thankful. Every once in awhile, I will check in to let you know how he's doing. Please continue to pray that cancer will never return to his body. Thank you.

You Capture: Sky

Psalms 71: 19-21

Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God,

you who have done great things.

Who, O God, is like you? 
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter,

(view from Andrew's hospital room)

you will restore my life again;

from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. 

You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.



  1. Dear Julie,
    The picture is great, love to see Andrew's happy face on the last pics..will keep him, you and your family in our prayers...

    P.S : I love the Mother Theresa quotes on your Blog... it inspires me a lot...

  2. That verse made me cry. Beautiful.
    Your photos are gorgeous, even/especially the view from the hospital room.

  3. For some reason, the sky looks so different with a cactus in the picture.
    This is a great balance of hard and soft. Prickly things with blessings.

  4. GORGEOUS photos. But most of all to see that baby boys smiling, brought tears to my eyes! Love the verses as well. Prayers still coming your way.

  5. That was baby "boy"... oops!
