No Words

Sometimes, there just aren't the right words, or enough of them, to share the feelings in your heart. That's why we have art. Not that I am comparing Leo's One year movie to a fine work of art, but in essence, it serves the same point. An image is a communion between the viewer and the creator; between the person and the subject, and ultimately, a much more subtle and powerful means of connection.
Hopefully, this short film about Leo, can say what my words fail to.
Many Years to our sweet, strong, and amazing boy! (Click on the text below, and then click on the title to view)


  1. That was an awesome video!! And Leo is awesome himself!

  2. OMG! If tears are redeeming, your old folks felt very redeemed watching this! ;-)

  3. Happy Birthday, Leo! And many more years! That is such a beautiful video.

  4. What an awesome video! My little guy just turned 1 on the 14th and he was smiling right along with Leo as we watched the movie :)

  5. Happy birthday, precious child. Beauty surrounds you and you are cradled in the arms of our Lord.

  6. Wow, how amazing. Not sure how I can feel so much for a family that I never have, and will probably never meet, but I am just so happy after watching your video, and just think that you are an absolutely extraordinary family. Your daughter is just as precious as Leo, and they are precious together. Happy Birthday to your little guy. :)

  7. Through our tears we praised the Lord for Leo's precious life and your amazing journey - all of you ! We wil continue to pray and believe ! Thank you so much for letting us all celebrate the Lion's Birthday :)

  8. This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
    Happy 1st Birthday, precious Leo Clement.

  9. "Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning." Ps. 30:5
    It was a long night, but the morning has come! Hallelujah!! Happy Birthday, little lion man. You are adorable.
    "Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting." Ps. 126:5
    The video was wonderful and brought tears to my eyes, as I remembered the beginning and now the joy a year later. Love, blessings, and continued prayers for you all!--Kathy

  10. You are all such a testament of faith and the incredible and awsome power of God's love for His children. Birthday blessings and praying for continued miracles in all of the days to come.

Lost In Summer

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last. This blog has meant many different things to me over the past seven years, in fact, it has taken as many different manifestations as its subject matter, Leo the little lion! Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
