Oh, Happy Day

Just wanted to tell you that I love and appreciate you...yes, you, reading this post. We may have never met, you may be one of my closest friends...but you have prayed for and thought about my sweet Forester and I love you for it. Thank you. Today was a great and painless day for all and my guy was being his silly old self. It was a joy to see. If you have children, hug them tight, let the meaningless annoying things go and just appreciate the smiles and the silly. It's an amazing gift. It's been a long day! I'm tired and THANKFUL. God is so good. Wish Pete was here tonight...



Love and thanks to all!

We continue to pray for Forester! So glad he is feeling okay right now. My husband and I met you at Zack and Katy's a few New Year's Eves ago. It was a very low key night. Not sure if you remember us or not. Katy keeps me updated, as well as the blog now. We love you guys and are praying!

What an incredible witness you all have been to so many! Whitney, to read your comments and see that your faith has been so ROCK SOLID through this all is such an amazing testimony. For you are right, God is good. Angus and I have been constantly lifting you all up in our prayers. We had our little Audrey in November and we look forward to meeting little Slade...she is so sweet! What a happy, precious angel! Thank you for touching our hearts through this journey. We are so blessed to "walk" with you and have the wonderful privledge of praying for you all! Love, Andralee and Angus Bright

Whitney, as for me and my household (all 60 of us), it's our JOY to pray for Forester. Can really sense the presence of Lord so strong while praying for him. Love you guys! We can sense the big picture in all of this, and I am so encouraged. 15 year old Arjun told me to tell you that, and I quote in broken english, 'This feels like the whole story, but actually it's not, the story isn't finished at all. There is much more to it. So..try to remember that this problem isn't really the whole story for you and for Forester. Don't let it make you feel overwhelmed. You are only seeing part of it. God has so much good for you"

Whitney,
I am one of the many I am sure who is following your story and never met any of you. I am a first time mother of a nine month old and you are a testament and an example to all of us mothers out here. I became aware of your story through Staci McLain whom I went to high school with.
Know that there are people all over this state and others praying for your precious Forrester. He is so brave.
As a mother, I promise you that I will never let a day go by that I don't hug and kiss my little Cooper. Thanks for the wonderful example of faith that you are showing everyone. God Bless You and Your Family!!!

Whitney,
Thanks so much... I have Forester on my heart and we are going to pray for him Easter Sunday in the Garden at Riverstone 1st - 5th. I will also have our 2 lift you all up nightly.. Zoe (4) and Henry (2) . My sister had a tumor removed at age 10, so I have some understanding of what you are going through, but still every family has a different experience. The bottom line is this.. Our hope is found in Christ ALONE!!! Sending love and kisses!~from the Kirklands.. Laura, Sean, Zoe and Henry
