I know we’ve been MIA for a few, but with good reason… we’re in Iowa! Well, Shepherd and I are. We flew in last night, LATE, thanks to some bad weather in Atlanta and a very busy travel weekend due to the 4th of July. But we’re HERE and our first appointment is this morning to see Dr. Morcuende and Dr. Ponseti. I am so excited for Shepherd, this is the beginning of a whole new life for him!
Sending prayers your way that all goes smoothly! How exciting for Shepherd! It won’t be long before he is running after Jude! 😉
Yeah!! Thanks for letting us know. I will be praying all goes well. What a blessing that it worked out for just you and Shepherd to go.
Wonderful news. I hope you have a fun,productive trip.
Congrats and Good Luck sweet Shepard! Prayers are with you!
Wow! You didn’t waste a moment getting him to Iowa!!! You’re amazing. Hope all goes well with Shepherd’s appointment. It’s incredible what they did for Jude and I hope that it is all just as successful for Shepherd. Wishing you guys all the best on this trip!
Hooray!!!! Hope all goes well!
I have been thinking about you and Shepherd all of yesterday and today. I am glad you made it safely and am praying that it goes well this morning.
Glad that you’re in Iowa now! I know Shepherds feet will look beautiful soon. How long are you staying?
I’ll be thinking lots of positive thoughts for you.
Looking forward to seeing Shepherd’s transformation. What a lucky little man to have such great doctors to care for him!

He is an amazing man…..He fixed my friends daughters bi lateral club feet….Aliyah Dermer, her mom is Robin. She said he was a god send for her and aliyah, she flew every 2 weeks from florida in the middle of winter….and with the internet more children will be healed by his hands!!! Best of luck, shepard could not have been placed in better hands, and hearts than yours!!

No way!! We were in Iowa this morning too. We saw Dr. Ponseti this morning at 9:00am. Eli’s feet look great, no new castings, just the brace at night and nap. We were thrilled with the work they had done in China. I’m excited to hear the changes ahead for Sheperd!

Praying God’s hand upon you & your precious Shepherd (and the rest of your family while you are away). It’s been amazing to read your blog and follow your latest journey. God is SO good! Blessings & peace.
Can’t wait to see him running with his brothers and sisters! I still remember how much I loved the video you posted of Jude learning to hustle on those beautiful little feet 🙂

My second son is in Iowa City this week at a sports camp, If I was with him I’d run over and pray with you. Now I will pray from the other side of the state.
God Bless your visit,

I’d been meaning to ask when you were going to see Dr. P. Enjoy your time with the ‘godfather’ and good luck to S and his feet!
