In the palm of God's hand

"He's got the whole world in his hand..." We all know the children's song. It was always fun to sing. But here's the thing. We really are in His hands. Every once in a while, if your looking for it, you will see his hands move to your benefit.
It is very evident that Biruk has something seriously wrong with his lower right leg. The insurance has been very good about quickly referring him to where ever he needs to go. This latest referral has been a little bit more of a challenge for them to refer him within network, but we got the call yesterday that they made him an appointment at Children's Memorial Hospital for the 23rd of April and that they would be calling us.
A woman named Maryanne took the call for the appointment. She worked in orthopedics for 7 years, but when she turned 60 she downsized her position and moved to appointments. When she arranged for Biruk's appointment, she was unhappy giving him an appointment so far out (Dr. Yasko is on vacation). She felt that a child who fell off of his bike and broke his arm, but complained of leg pain, needed a little extra intervention. She did not want him to wait. She felt that he NEEDED to be seen by the doctor that she used to work for. He went to Harvard, Stanford, and Northwestern. She made the call, and Dr. King agreed that Biruk should be seen as soon as possible. Biruk's appointment is now Monday the 13th. He and Dr. Yasko will be taking care of my son together. From what I can find out, they both are brilliant.

It is not hard to see God's hands at work. He is constantly working all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose. He called us to Biruk and made us his parents. He will take care of my son.
