God’s Beautiful Gift

College Station was an amazing fun place.  Frank and I absolutely enjoyed the wonder of all the things that we could go and do there. Were we poor?  Yes, but wealthy in the things that really mattered.  We had each other, lots of friends, plus lots of family living close by in the same apartments where we lived.  Just like when Frank was in the Army, we were surrounded by couples who shared the same circumstances and poorness as us. The first semester of school passed by quickly for Frank and me then it was time for Christmas.  We had continued to work with the Doctor in Wharton, Texas on...

Frozen Diapers & Baby Book

Baby Boy was keeping us very busy.  He was a hungry baby, nursing or taking six ounces of formula every two hours. The Nurses told us before we left to take Scotty home that he had been keeping them quite busy.  They had brought him to me every four hours, but in between, they were giving him formula. So, they had sent us home with small bottles of formula with instructions of how and when to use. Frank’s folks and his little sister came to see us the day after we had arrived home with Scotty.  With them, they had a multifunction stroller.  Of course, we all loaded Scotty into the...
