First Day Back To The BooBoo House

Rebekah in the playroom:

Today was a milestone. Almost 2 months after the fire Rebekah was ready to go back to the BooBoo house. Even as recent as last week it was a problem. In fact it was even a problem for her one day last week when Daddy was going there. Today she started telling us that she wanted to go, to "give the booboo house booboo medicine" and to "give the booboo house hugs." We gave her ample time to see if that was going to pass and it didn't. About 1:00 we went. As we approached she did not in any way flinch or show any signs of distress like she had before. We started out for about a 1/2 hour in the trailer outside while daddy moved some equipment around with the tractor (for the roofing people to dump the tear-off into). Then it was time:

We think we have it, thanks to youtube:"

The video is not super exciting but it IS miraculous. We were in tears as we saw that she was going to be okay. As you can see, she went straight to the playroom. Then she and Sarah walked all around the whole house. After being around the house Rebekah was a little hesitant to go back to the playroom but she did and it didn't seem to be too difficult. PRAISE GOD! And please, pray for good weather tomorrow as they are going to try and replace the roof. The weather says 30-50% chance of showers but that is the best we have had in a week and the best looking chance in the next week and it needs to get done. It would be great if God could give us just enough hours of dry.

Update: In what can only be an answer to prayer, thank you all, our entire 2300 square foot house is completely roofed. They took off the old and put on the new in just under 6 hours. And miraculously it only sprinkled (or snowed) just a bit while it happened and now it is about to pour!

Saw the house from the highway about 8:15 this a.m. and they were working hard and it looked like they had made good progress already on the roof. Rebekah looks so cute in the pic!

Oh what a miracle this little girl is, I come and check in often and don't comment nearly enough but you are in my prayers and Rebekah is in my thought smore than you can know. Seeing a video of her just helps me see just how incredible she really is, what a long way she has come.
What wonderful news that the roof is on, now Rebekah has been there you can really begin to look forward to going home, I just hope it will be soon.
You know what seemed like a tragedy could be such a blessing, your home will be so new and fresh, being rebuilt just as Rebekah is rebuilding her little body after it's battle. Prayers for endless miracles for you and yours.

Oh I am so glad to see them doing so well. Rebecca is starting the healing process and has come a long way. My husband will be so delighted to hear of it for we have shared pray time over you and yours. I know that all of this is to glorify him in some way may it be just simply gaining compassion. You never know who might cross your path one day.
