Magnanimously homeschooling, worshiping, creating.......

Join us on a journey of faith, healing, learning to live with part of our hearts missing, and recovery, as our family rebuilds our lives, after our son's long battle with cancer....and his eventual rise on eagle's wings into Heaven...victory is his...he is serving the King!!!

21 days and counting!

We brought home some new babies on Tuesday!

Here's the moms and daddy! Thanks for letting us incubate your little ones for you.

Here's the babies, all snuggled in their car seats. You don't want to wash all that goo off, or it can make them sick.

Setting up their new warm incubating home. We need water for moisture and don't forget to put the thermometer in there.

Here they are now, sunny side up! See the sunshines? The other side has moons. That is how we can keep track of turning them morning and night. We must keep a steady temperature.

Here's your covers and good night snug little chickies...we'll check back in with you soon!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
