Lessons Learned form MTV

Tonight I gave in to the world of the boob tube. The last season of Lost was on and I just couldn't help myself! This episode was beyond confusing but to some degree I guess that is the point!

Then I topped off TV fest of with Teen Mom. Yes sad but true. I think what drew me to the show was the teen couple, Caitlin and Tyler, who gave their daughter up for adoption.

Being a grown woman who was adopted it was very intriguing to see the raw emotion behind giving up a child and what that may have meant for the woman whom I have never met,that gave me birth . What a gift she gave me many years ago! Yes I guess one can learn something from MTV... who'd-a-thunk it!

I also watched in awe at the issues all of the teens were facing. It made me think back to over 12 years ago when my oldest was born. I thought life was hard and complicated then. Yeah...well.

But once again I have learned something from MTV! My life may have been stressful then and it may be stressful now to a whole new degree but God has carried me through all of it. My life has by no means been smooth sailing but every day I learn something new and become a stronger.... (more tired)... person for it!

I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would be where I am today. I never would have thought that my daughter would have ever died in my arms and then come back to me. I never whould have thought that I would be excited to spend thousands of dollars on stem cells, suit therapy, or ABM. I never would have thought I would have enough medical knowlege to be able to talk to doctors on their level. I never would have thought I would have to make such life changing decisions and I never thought I would be this strong.

Here I am today. 12 years later. The highlight of my day was having a phone consult with Anat Baniel...yeah I would have never thought.... but for today it was my highlight. It was a very good call and put some things into perspective. The biggest was how much Makenzie's therapists love and care about her. How much they are willing to sacrifice and learn from this new experience and help her heal. God is so good!

Everyone around can see a change in Makenzie. We are going to continue with ABM and ease up on all other therapy. I say ease because they are all still coming! We are all going to learn how to work within the parameters of what ABM teaches and give it a 100% go! We will re evaluate in March after we meet with Anat in person and go from there! I am very excited but very nervous at the same time. All I want to do is to help Makenzie learn and grow.... I would have never thought I would ever be here....sometimes it feels like too much... but if I apply what I learned tonight on MTV....God will carry me through! He has for the last 12 years....he ain't gonna stop now!

"The Lord says, "I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them. I will satisfy them with a long life and give them my salvation."
(Psalm 91:14-16, NLT)
