Mattie was extubated on Thursday morning. Here he is resting peacefully after he was taken off the ventilator.

And for two weeks, this is what I have longed for.

This tiny boy has captured my heart and I will never be the same.

Our boy is valiant and strong.

He is full of fire and fight.

He takes my breath away.

With one glance of his eyes I melt.

And this I know, my son, you are a magnificent work of the mighty hand of God. You are for signs and wonders. Your life will declare the beauty and power of the one who created you. You will live to make His name known.

In the past 24 days, you have spoken by your very existence that God is great and greatly to be praised. I believe that in the years to come, you will speak with your eyes, with your words, and with your very actions, and the lives of many will be transformed.
