The 5th May 2009
Lucas Adrian Middleton 2.9kg is born, it's nearly 9pm and his battle has begun. Adrian & I were in Switzerland in the Lauterbrunnen Valley and Ashleigh and Danielle in Tuscanny at a cooking school, when we got the news that Lucas would probably need a liver transplant. We all cancelled the remaining days of our trips and flew home. Neonatal Hemochromatosis the words that sent us spinning. NH is very rare and the cure is a liver transplant. We started this journey totally believing that God would heal Lucas. Adrian had opened a bible in our room in Switzerland and he randomly opened in the Book Of Luke (Lucas) and the heading on the chapter was "The Boy was Healed" So we took that to a sign from God and we came home expecting to see that happen. The days dragged on and Lucas stayed pretty much the same. We kept praying and our friends prayed. We saw nothing...nothing like we expected to see. Lucas still needs a liver.
