Welcome home Elder Schenk! Today the family got to welcome home Elder Schenk. When he saw/heard us he stretched out his arms and started to cry. We just embraced him. As the tears flowed, we were just so grateful to be home!
The therapist gave him a voice box so he would be able to talk to us. When Elder Schenk's family came in, he was definitely happy to see them. He put his hand out and said, "I've missed you all so much." It was a great reunion! Tears were shed. Tears of joy, for his safe return home.
The next 2 days will be evaluations with the different doctors and therapists. We know that many will want to come and visit, but Britten will need some time. We will let you know when he is up for a visit.
We are so appreciative to each one of you for your faith and prayers in Elder Schenk's behalf. We have truly felt comfort in all the support you have given us, as we have felt our Heavenly Father's arms wrapped around us.
We love you all, Steven and Karla
