Dearest Joni and Tet,
I am so glad jon jon is finally in your arms again. God really works in mysterious ways and may you and jon jon experience his perpetual blessings through the most trivial of things. Jon really is a fighter. At the outset, he was determined to come good. Truly your TLC is one of the factors why he wants to see better days. I hope he will experience and enjoy the brighter side of life. I admire you both for your courage and selfless sacrifice. I know of some mums and dads who simply gave up when things were dim. But you walked the extra mile and never let your baby down. Just the thought of you taking that extra step left me with tears running down my eyes. You truly are great parents and that how evey parenting must be spelled. Half the battle is won so I will never cease to say my prayers for your family.
I am also truly grateful to the Almighty for all the wonderful personalities and institutions that came to your aid. Jon's condition has been a blessing in disguise because along the way, you have met new friends whom you never thought would be so true and caring. They will be friends worth keeping and gifts worth treasuring.
Draw inspiration from Jon. He will never give up and so do we.
