Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

We spent the afternoon trying to find the perfect trees for the new zip line.

Joseph and Benjamin's job was to secure the cable downhill.

Meanwhile, Rosie waited patiently for her turn on the "zip line" while I snapped pictures with my new camera!

At the end of the day, nothing beats a warm beverage and a good book.
