A Lifechanging Day

It was June when Josiah arrived. He weighed a little over six pounds, small for a newborn, and was just over three months old. Preemie clothes were the only ones that fit. This sweet little boy was in dire need of a lot of love and a lot of warm milk!

It only took a week to see the transformation in his little body. His eyes were the first to change. Originally sad to look upon, his eyes had become windows into a little soul that was learning, for the first time, to live.

Now, Josiah is a spunky, chubby little guy. He loves to laugh and be tickled and has recently learned to roll over, something he didn't have the strength to do before.

We're so thankful for the day he came and the chance we were given to make a difference in his life.


  1. What a picture of love. LOVE is a powerful thing. Praise God!

  2. I remember thinking the day you came... that I can't wait to see the transformation you make.

    You look great, baby! Keep it up!

  3. What a difference time in loving care makes! Praise God for places like New Day that make a difference in the lives of children!

  4. Kinda reminds me of Evan (Forest) when you took him in. Oh, what a difference you guys make in the lives of these precious souls.

  5. I wish I could hold sweet little Josiah. What a beautiful child. Thank you for the love you give these children.

  6. Good food and lots of hugs!! Yeah! he does remind me of Forest (Evan)
