Pictures from Chicago

Just wanted to share some pictures from our Chicago trip this past week. For those of you who have been asking... we will hopefully receive our dog this summer in July. We have to attend a two week training camp at Canine Assistants. We are really excited!


The dog in the pictures is Carly. She belongs to one of the trainers. They have several dogs that travel for their publicity events. We will meet the dog that will be selected for us when we attend training. They match the dogs with you based on personality.

Here is a link to one of the articles that was published. I hope to have a video link from the press conference up soon. We are still so overwhelmed and grateful for this news.

Thank you to those who have continued to lift Spencer up in prayer. We have been almost 4 weeks without a seizure!
I'll be back later!

This is going to be so great! I can't wait to see the bond that will develop between Spencer and his new companion.

Hi, Amy. I had no idea they had companion dogs for children with epilepsy. I think this is so cool! I've always been a fan of seeing eye dogs and thought it would be great to raise one for the sole purpose of being someone's companion. I hope it all goes smoothly and your son has his shortly.

Have a great week!

Amy, God is doing wonderful things in your life and in Spencer's! While the new dog is an amazing gift, 4 weeks seizure free is tops!
I know you all are doing the happy dance at your house. I can hear the music from here and my toes are tapping along!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
