Lilee is out!

This just in! Dr. Reddy, Lilee's surgeon, just came into the lobby at 3:30 and told me that everything went very well. Six and a half hours after we handed her over, she has had her surgery and is on the way to recovery and going home. Praise you merciful Father!!! Let Your name be praised for all that you've done for our sweet daughter!

And thank you to the hundreds of our friends and family who lifted her up today! A "thank you" could never say it enough! We have rested in His peace and your encouragement from the beginning. We are headed in to see her for the first time in a few minutes. I'm sure that will be difficult as you can imagine but we are now on the other side of the mountain and each moment now brings her closer to going home form her first Christmas!

Thank you Lord, thank you family and thank you everyone who reads this today. As always, we will continue with regular posts and keep you updated with her recovery. For now,
Chris, Erin and the new and improved Lilee Bean!

Hallelujah! God is good. Wow, what a relief. We know He will continue to hold her in His arms as she recovers. As much as possible, you two get plenty of rest as you can for the next two or so weeks, so you will all be rejuvenated and raring to go. What a little miracle and a GREAT story to tell! I am so EXCITED for all of you! Thanking God for His love and faithfulness. Wish we were there to hug each of you, but you know we will continue to think about you. She's on the road over the top of the mountain now! Yahoooooooo! Thanks soooo much for all your updates! You have been awesome to keep us all informed as well as you have!
Love you lots,
Sharon & Garold

What a wonderful blessing. This morning we had some noisy children during worship service. It reminded us all what a blessing children are to our familes and our churches. We said a special prayer during worship for Lillee and all the children who are in the hospital there with her. We pray that their outcome is as wonderful as Lillee's appears to be. Our best to the happy parents and to our dear friends Frank & Kris. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow!"

Good Evening Finch Family--

God is so awesome and even with the waiting, HIs timing is always perfect and He is NEVER late. Ste4ve and I both had a peace that God had given you quite a blessing and His power would be manifested in her, little did we know what you would all have to go through, but there is always something we gleen from the tribulations we go through. Somehow God shows us how much He really loves us and what prayer and faith is all about. We can't wait to see you all someday soon after Lilee is home...We are still praying for a speedy recovery and WHAT A TESTIMONY YOU WILL ALL HAVE.....LOVE U GUYS AND LITTLE LILLE "BEAN"...

Praise God! We will continue to pray for your little Lilee as she fully recovers from surgery. What a strong and brave little girl you have. We danced around the house praising our father for the miracle performed today and we ask God to renew his Strength in little Lilee Jane so that she may have a speedy recovery.
We love you all so much,
