James and I got home from my brother’s last night and unpacked a little.

Today, I visited my chiropractor! However, after my visit, I felt a little tired and my neck hurt so I went home for a snooze.

While I was sleeping the phone rang and James brought it in to me.

The caller ID said, “Department of Corrections”

GRRR!!! I HATE those phone calls. Even if I shouldn’t or I don’t need to, I tense up and pray that God will help me not make a fool of myself on the phone when I’m talking to the Parole Officer.

Instead of Lee’s PO it was Lee. He said, ‘Is James home?”

I said, “Umm…. yes. Why?” I wasn’t sure why he was calling or what was going on.

Lee said, “I’m in my PO’s office and he said I can talk to James.”


I said, “Are you sure?” Lee assured me that this was official.

I called James in and told him and he said, “Are you sure?” It makes me sad that James had that response, but I said, “Yes, talk to Daddy.”

James hand shook a little bit as he took the phone, but he said, “Hello…?”

Then he looked at me and said, “Now he’s crying!”

Lee talked to James for a couple of minutes and then they said “Goodbye”

I don’t know why that happened. I don’t know if it’s a sign of good things to come, but WOW! Out of the blue just like that, God gave them the opportunity to speak to each other.

As soon as I hung up, James said, “So now when can I see him?”

I said, “I don’t know, Hon.”

I gave him a hug and I’ve spent the rest of the afternoon marveling at our wonderful blessing and waiting to hear from Lee on how it came about!

    Lizzie, this is wonderful news! What an unexpected and thrilling little “surprise”!

    I don’t know if I have ever commented before, but I have followed your story for a good while now, and I have prayed and thought of you often. I am planning to continue to follow your story until the GREAT REUNION, and beyond!

    God bless your family. You have been an unwavering source of inspiration and a testament to God’s Grace for me, and I’m sure countless others, even when I am sure that was the last thing you felt like. I hope the end of the road is in sight for your precious family now.

    Thanks so much for your kind words and for letting me know you are reading and praying!
