PSALMS 106:1-2

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, his love endures forever. Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord or fully declare his praise?" Psalms 106: 1-2

God is good. He's carried us through this entire time. His love has held us up when nothing else could. Bauer being able to have this surgery is a mighty act of the Lord. God has truly given Dr. Mulliken an extraordinary, miraculous gift. Bauer's face is being taken from what most would call a deformed look to a completely normal little boy. We praise God for the amazing gift he has given our son through incredible surgeons, nurses, and staff.
Adam and I didn't know what to do when we saw his new face for the first time. His face was fairly swollen and he was still under anesthesia. We couldn't see half of it because of the gauze and tape. Part of us kept wondering, "Where is Bauer?", "Oh my gosh, he looks so different."

But more than anything we were so thankful that our baby boy came out okay. His surgery went absolutely perfect, and though it may take us a few days to get used to, our boy is going to be even more beautiful and still the love of our life. It's amazing how many emotions you feel at one time. This is a picture about 1 hour after surgery.

What a God we serve! Your boy was beautifully perfect in every way and now? Wow! Beautifully perfect in a new and different way. He's blessed to have an amazing set of parents and extended family who love him and will certainly be showing him the most excellent Way. Who could ask for more at Christmas than to be home, surrounded by family and friends. Relax, enjoy and look forward to the coming year! You three are amazing. Kyle showed me photos when he returned and since I hadn't heard in a bit, I googled Bauer! Can't wait to see you guys in '08. We leave in the a.m. to be with our boys... and their parents... Have a wonderful Christmas Adam, Stacy & Bauer!
Blessings, Michele & Russell
