God has answered our prayers! He is soooo good! You will continue to be prayed for! When I told Ethan that Lincoln got a new heart, he said,"I'm so happy". Then this morning I told him the surgury went well, and Ethan said,"Where's Lincoln's helicopter? Do I get to play with him now?" He is so looking forward to that day! We love you guys!

So glad to hear Lincoln is stable. Everytime I woke up last night, you guys were on my mind and I prayed for you. My heart so rejoices with you over Lincoln's new heart and I'll continue to pray for all the "bumps" (hopefully not many :) in this new road you'll be taking.

Today Rylie prayed, "Thank you, Jesus, for Lincoln. He's getting a new heart. And that is good. Amen." Joshua, on the other hand, keeps reminding us to pray for the other family. So, as far as the Aaron family is concerned, we've got all the angles covered in prayer :)

Love you guys!

I am glad to hear that your son is doing well. I will certainly keep you and your family, as well as the donor family in my prayers.

Sounds like God has BIG plans for your little man!

I found about you from Terri.

I hope he continues to do well.

Praise God that Lincoln got his heart! Imagine how strong he will be with his new heart, as he was strong as a lion with his weak little heart! The Griffin family is praying for dear little Lincoln. We learned of Lincold via Sharon, who was in my high school graduating class of 1973. Sincerely, Marsha (Swingle) Griffin, Bill & Family

'For I know the plans I have for you" declares the LORD. "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13

These were the first words I read this morning when your Great Uncle Gary called and gave us the good news. Praying for you!

Hugs and blessings,
The Lockshaw Family, San Diego

Josh & Kristen, We are so excited and happy for you guys. God is so good and He continues to bless us over and over again. We are all looking forward to seeing all three of you back home in Fresno. Lincoln is so cute and is really growing into a fine young man and now with a new heart......!! You guys are such a wonderful testimony for everyone to see and I'm sure the hospital staff will have many wonderful memories of your time with them. We will continue to pray and also for the family who have provided a heart for Lincoln. God is so good. Give Lincoln a hug and a kiss as soon as possible. We praise God for His faithfulness!

Love you guys,
Vera Jean & Curtis
