So much to be thankful for!

Good Evening All,

We hope that your Thanksgiving holiday was filled with LOVE, JOY and SO much to be THANKFUL for. We have had many things to be thankful for this thanksgiving and continue to be so blessed by everybody's support and encouragement.

The holiday was bittersweet for the Adams family because they were unable to be with Devin, but they were able to visit him for a few hours the day before and had a wonderful visit. Katy is spending every minute she has with him snuggling, loving and playing with her precious boy. He is continuing to heal, grow and THRIVE!! Katy is so grateful to his caregivers and she feels so blessed and thankful to know that they are taking such wonderful care of her little boy.

** This is Ron, one of Devin's caregivers... this picture was sent to Katy on Thanksgiving Day **

Katy has visited Devin a few times this week, and was able to go to Devin's first dentist appointment today! She was a proud Momma when she walked out because Devin is cavity free and his oral hygiene is off to a great start. He continues to get more teeth and x rays show that he is getting his first set of molars. Poor little guy, we all know teething is NOT fun.

We also would like to let you all know that Katy has redesigned the ETSY site for Devin's bracelets. She has added LOTS of fun new colors, just in time for your holiday gift giving. These bracelets would make for wonderful stocking stuffers. Ü We know that not only is it a way to show our support for Devin but it also acts as a constant reminder to keep Devin and the family in our prayers. Everytime we glance at our wrist or grab our keys we say a little prayer for our miracle boy!

As we all have begun to move forward with our lives and while we continue to wait anxiously for the reunification of Katy and Devin, we want to remind you to keep them in your prayers. Please pray that God's will be done and that He will continue to heal Devin's body, allowing him to overcome obstacles, and to encourage his determination to show improvements physically, verbally, cognitively and emotionally. Please also keep Katy and the Adams family in your prayers through this difficult time of wait. Please ask the Lord to grant them peace, patience, grace and trust that OUR God will reunite them soon.

May you all be blessed and find peace in your lives.

Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8-9

Family and friends,

We are heartbroken to post this update. Katy arrived at court today very hopeful in getting Devin back and the system has failed them once again.

The court appointed attorney that has been working with Katy went on maternity leave last week and reassigned Devin's file to another individual. This representative felt incapable of making a judgement because he wasn't familiar with the case, so the judge dismissed the case and postponed it for 30 days. Their new court hearing date is December 21st. Katy's personal attorney failed to attend the hearing because of her inability to remember the correct court date and since she didn't attend and was unable to protest the dismissal on Katy's behalf the judges judgement remains concrete. Needless to say, Katy no longer has a personal attorney and will be seeking representation elsewhere and Devin remains in foster care.

We understand that many of you are probably outraged by this news, as are we and so are the Adams family. We need your support more than ever. Please do not let anger and disappointment overcome you. Please turn your frustrations into prayer so Katy can have her precious boy back before CHRISTmas. Please pray that Katy can feel God's peace and LOVE. Please pray that the next 30 days are swift and that the Adams family may find happiness in knowing that Devin remains safe and healthy and our God will make this right in HIS time.

For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do. And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness to have the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:10-12

Prayer Request!

Dearest family, friends and WARRIORS,

When we come before God in prayer He sees us. When we come before God in prayer He feels us and most importantly when we come before God in prayer HE hears us.

The Adams family is ever so grateful for your constant prayer efforts but have asked for a huge prayer request. On November 21, 2011 (Monday) Katy goes before the court system and Child Support Services in a custody hearing to determine if Devin will remain in foster care or be reunited with his Mommy. This day has become the most important day in her life right now and we need all of your help. We ask that you pray for their strength, their patience, their understanding but most importantly we ask that you pray for reunification.

Please lift up your requests to the Lord, we know HE hears us. Throughout this process we have all witnessed how the power of prayer changes things. We have watched Gods abundant LOVE in healing Devin and we know how amazing God's love is for us ALL. Without ceasing and without reservation please pray for justice and that Devin will be placed back into his mothers loving arms where he belongs!

THANK YOU, May you all have a blessed weekend and we hope to bring you happy news on Monday!

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24

** Just a little extra happiness for you all... these were photos from the Adam's family visit on Thursday Ü**

God is GOOD!!!

Joy reminds me of a song from my childhood –♪♫♪ I’ve got that joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart … ♪♫♫. Once that song gets into your heart you will be singing it all day! True joy can only be attained as part of the fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:22). It is that overwhelming sense of comfort and contentment that floods one’s soul. It is the thing that we have when we are walking with the Holy Spirit and mortifying the deeds of the flesh (Rom 8:13 KJV). True Joy comes only when we are focused upon walking with the Lord and esteeming others (Phil 2:3-5 KJV). Since Joy is fruit of the Spirit it is a special gift that only the believer has (Eph 1:12-14; 4:30).

Praise the Lord for another beautiful day filled with lots of joy love and laughter!

Katy was able to visit her little guy again today and they had a FUN visit. FULL of giggles and tickles, laughter and joy!

He continues to improve daily and he is the purest testament of God's everlasting LOVE!

We hope this brightens your day and puts a smile on your face!

Much love and thanks to you ALL, May God be with you and bless you always!

Doctor visit update

Devin's appointment with the neurosurgeon went well. He had his sutchers removed and his wound has healed very well. Doctors are planning to schedule a CT scan for the beginning of December. The results from that scan will determine when they schedule his surgery. Overall Devin is continuing to do amazing and his progress continues to amaze us all.

We also wanted to inform everyone that Katy has updated the Etsy site with new bracelets and key chains. Please visit her site to check out her new bracelet colors!

**They come in all sizes!... Cousin Paige is supporting her cousin Devin too!**

Katy would also like to thank you all so much for your support. These bracelets have been keeping her very busy and she is so grateful for your contributions financially and spiritually. These funds are going to a wonderful cause and she can't wait to have her precious boy back so she can begin his rehabilitation at home!!

Many blessings!!

Oh happy day!

Good evening!!

We have a wonderful update for you all. We know how hard it is to let days go by without hearing or reading any new posts. We apologize, unfortunately we are still waiting for the system to work through the details and our only source of information on how Devin is doing is when Katy gets to visit him. Her visits are minimal and not on a schedule so as soon as we get information we pass it on to all of you. Ü We are hopeful and in constant prayer for a quick resolve so that Devin can be reunited with Katy soon. Until then, we are grateful to know that Katy is able to visit Devin and spend time with her little boy.

Today they had a wonderful visit. Devin was full of smiles, babbling up a storm and once again proving he is that little miracle baby that we all have come to love! Devin was quite the show off today, standing tall with assistance while playing with table toys, having tummy time and ROLLING both ways from back to tummy and tummy to back! He also was kicking BOTH legs while laying on his tummy! Yes you read that right... He's moving his right leg! They are overjoyed with these improvements and are so excited to see where time and God's healing will take this precious boy.

Katy is now allowed to participate in Devin's doctors visits. She goes tomorrow with Devin's foster family to meet with a neurosurgeon to potentially remove his sutchers and discuss his bone flap surgery. When we have detailed information regarding the results of his visit and when surgery will be scheduled we will notify you.

Lastly we would like to add that we appreciate your continued encouragement and prayers. While the posts have been less frequent and all of our lives are continuing to move forward we would like to ask you to continue your support for Devin and his family. We would like that you stay focused in your prayer warrior efforts. Please keep Katy in your prayers as she is still having a difficult time and misses her sweet boy every second of everyday. Please pray that they can be reunited soon! Pray for Devin that he continues to thrive and grow in his abilities and that God will continue to guide this little boy. Please pray for our justice system and family law system to resolve this case quickly so they can be together again.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus
Philippians 4:6-7

Special Visit

Hello All,

Katy had another special visit with Devin! They were able to visit with him on Friday and he is doing VERY well! They spent their time playing, cuddling, laughing and bonding with Devin. Devin is showing good signs of improvement. He immediately recognized Katy and gave Mommy BIG smiles when she came to see him. They played on the floor and while Katy was holding Devin up, he was able to put weight on his legs and attempted to take THREE!! steps, before he started to fall! These are once again MIRACULOUS signs of God's grace and the healing that he continues bless this precious boy with. Ü

Devins head is healing very well. His inisicion looks very good and they will be removing his stitches soon. They plan to schedule the bone flap surgery for sometime this month and we will notify you all when we have a scheduled date. ALL of your PRAYERS will be needed and greatly appreciated.

We would also like to THANK YOU for the amazing amount of support we have received with the "Devin" bracelets! Katy and Kaitlyn (Devin's Godmother) are BUSY BUSY BUSY getting these made and sent out! We hope you enjoy them and will use them as a constant reminder to pray for Devin and his family.

Please continue to pray for Devin's healing, but MOST importantly that Devin and Katy can be reunited soon. We pray for their reunification and ask that you would ask God to bless the CPS individuals trying to resolve the case and that they are able to find a resolution quickly so that precious Devin can be back in his Mommy's loving, comforting and healing arms!


Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:22-26

Happy Halloween!

Katy got the BEST treat yesterday! Ü

She was able to visit Devin on Halloween and brought his costume to play a little dress up! Devin looked wonderful and recognized Katy with a smile right away. He LOVED his costume. They giggled, laughed and played for a short period of time. While she was holding him on her lap he was able to put pressure on his legs and support some of his weight. Such a good sign that he is getting stronger. We are all SO excited to watch him get stronger and increase his mobility. Keep up the GOOD work Devin.

The CUTEST little Mickey that you ever did see!
