Jaifaith

I know this has been a long time coming, but here it is. Those of you who look at this blog, if there is anyone, probably already know about Jaifaith, but we thought we needed to introduce him to our blog anyways. For anyone that doesn't know, Jaifaith is a little boy that Stan and I have been taking care of for the past 3 1/2 months while his mom has been sick. Long story short, his mom is a diabetic and when she got pregnant with him, her kidneys shut down on her and ever since then she has had to be on dialysis. She is currently in need of a kidney and pancreas transplant, however, at this point she is not on the donor list and we're not sure if she is even eligible. Her health fluctuates from day to day, and she is just not strong enough to care for this rambunctious little boy at this point. Jaifaith is now almost 14 months old, however he was born at 27 weeks so his adjusted age is 11 months. He is a miracle baby being born at 1 lb 11 oz with no significant health problems, and he has truly been a blessing in mine and Stan's life. He is a vibrant, smart and active little boy whom we have come to love as our own child. We are not sure what the future holds at this point, we just take everything day to day and trust in God to lead us and work out the details. After all, Jaifaith's name does mean victory in faith in some translations, and this is no coincidence! God has had his hand is this the whole time, and we know he will take care of this special little boy who has already touched so many lives. Here are some more pictures of the little guy!

Technology truly is an inescapable aspect of our daily lives, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further innovates, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.

Interesting post... Looks like flash memory is finally beginning to become more popular. Hopefully we'll start seeing decreasing solid state harddisk prices real soon. 5 dollar 32 gigabyte Micro SD Cards for your Nintendo DS flash card... imagine that!

You could easily be making money online in the underground world of [URL=http://www.www.blackhatmoneymaker.com]blackhat forums[/URL], Don’t feel silly if you have no clue about blackhat marketing. Blackhat marketing uses not-so-popular or misunderstood avenues to generate an income online.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and
tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from
an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks
