Praise God! I've been checking on Coy for a long time, and rejoiced with you yesterday when I saw you at your threshold of your home. May God continue to bless all of you (especially with sleep and continued good health). You are an amazing testimony of God's love and faithfulness to His Children!

To copy a famous show...congratulations on your own extreme makeover...welcome home Kolkhorst family, welcome home.

(Again, I'm Lisa Kolkhorst Tarver's friend Jeri who taught with her in Seguin and misses her like crazy. Someday when I'm up in Bryan seeing her and the 137,482 other people who've been praying for Coy has their turn, I'd love to meet your chubby little man.)

Ann Marie and Chris,

I am just so happy for you, Coy is just beautiful and looks so happy and comfortable at home! I got all teary-eyed to read that you are home and doing well! Reminds me of only a few months ago... Hang in there with all of that equipment- hopefully he won't need it for too long. (I know how heavy that O2 tank and monitor are... along w/ baby in a carrier!) :) I love the pictures!!! Coy is such a precious little boy. I wish you the best!

Love,
Ann, Shawn, and Jaxson

John & Kelly said...

I am sooo happy for you guys! you look like naturals and I know it will feel like you have been doing this forever very soon! Coy looks beautiful! Great Cheeks!
I can't imagine how trying it is to have a new baby mixed with a nicu baby! so I am praying for you as a mom constantly and praying protection over Coy. If you need anything - a mom who understands or have a mom question (from a mom of, ahhhhh!, 3 boys - how am I sane!) I am totally here!
We think you guys are amazing!

Look at him. He is so cute. I love the pictures. I'm so glad you finally have your little miracle boy home. What a blessing!

I really don't know you and am not quite sure of how I got to your blog. Our 3rd child Cooper was born at 31 wks. so reading your blog bought back so many memories. God is so good and faithful isn't he. I know the emotions you have felt and the emotions you are going through right now. God has a special plan for Coy. The Lord taught me and is teaching me so much through Cooper and I know He will through Coy. Congratulations!!!!

Esperanza said...

I am speachless! Wow, what an AMAZING God we have. This is a true testimony and I have shared it with everyone. Words just can't express how happy we are. We will continue to pray for you all. I would love to send something to Coy. Is there an address I can mail something to him at? I understand you don't know us so not sure if you are comfortable handing that out. Please email me at megan@thelinklaters.com.
We are celebrating with you all. God Bless. Can't wait to hear from you again. Coy looks very happy being at home.

Praise God! I am thrilled that Coy is finally home. God is so good. Thank you for sharing your lives and testimony to God's glory with so many.
May the Lord bless you and keep you;
May the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

What an adorable little boy. I had 23 week twins in August 2007. My son, Logan fought hard for 1 month and 1 day before leaving this earth and truly going home. My daughter, Olivia, spent 105 days in the hospital before I was able to take her home on Dec. 10th. I always like to meet other parents of 23 weekers and I'm so glad that you were able to bring Coy home.

Joyce said...

Chris and Ann Marie, thank you so much for letting all of us see your precious baby. Yes, indeed. He looks exactly like his Dad. I will continue to pray for him and for the two of you, and with God's blessing Coy will become quite a man that will make an impact on our world. I look forward to the day when I meet the three of you at your church in Houston. Then I definitely get to hold my baby Coy.
