How wonderful for you three!
Wonderful news!!! I am so happy for your family. Will be praying for safe travels.Love & Hugs,Susan
You are an amazing family! Thank you for sharing with us, it was nice having an update and knowing your absence has been from good business and packing!Make sure you get the carseat in tight, at the correct angle, make sure the straps aren't too loose, and the chest clip is at arm pit level. I hope someone is around to help you out with the carseat for the ride home!!! (I'm a carseat fanatic!)Also hope you got the book I sent :)Apryl in NC
Congratulations! I pray you will be able to get settled quickly & stay healthy.
FANTASTIC! And to think less than five months ago, Gwenyth was a wee micro preemie and Tricia had different lungs. Amazing how far you guys have come in a short time; many continued blessings to you all.
I have never left you a comment before, but I have visited you site daily since I heard about your story. I have kept your family in our family prayers. Your story has touched me so very much, and has changed my opinion on organ donation. I think your story is so very amazing, and how you have kept your faith in our Heavenly Father through the whole process, is amazing to me! I hope nothing but the best for you and your wonderful family! As a first time parent myself, it goes by so fast, and the first year (which we are experancing now), is the best, they grow and learn so much, it the best to watch!! Congratulations to you and your family! And thank you for sharing your story with so many!!Take care!The Rasor'sUtah
I'm so excited you are (almost) on your way home. Have a safe trip!! I can't wait to hear how good home feels after all this time.
That is terrific news!! So happy for all of you. I cannot even imagine what you and Tricia must be feeling. I will be praying that God provides just the right home for your beautiful family.Praying and trusting God,Sheryl
I am so happy for you guys! Praying tomorrow goes well and that you have a safe trip HOME!! I'll continue praying for you as Tricia and Gwyneth need to continue to stay healthy. Many blessings to all of you! God is so good! Thanks for sharing so much of your life with the world!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Wow!!!! keep us posted! Praying and rejoicing, jen in al
I am praying for a safe trip HOME!!! Tears of joy for the three of you.
How exciting. Have a safe journey.
So glad you're going home!! It really is the best feeling ever to see all the friends etc again! p.s. your world-visitor-map looks like it has cancer...
So so so so happy for y'all! May God bless your trip home with angels on all four corners of your vehicle to get you there safely and without incident! @ Alice ~ Your p.s. made me giggle! Praying you're still doing well....
Wooooooooohoooooooo!!! :)What exciting news!!! :)We will be praying for a safe trip home for you all. :)Blessings!Amy in Oregon
We'll be praying for a safe trip home, for continued health for all of you and adjustment to your new life.
We would so much like to be there! :-)Lots of love from France,
You and your family will be in my prayers. I can't believe you are finally going home. What an answer to prayer and what a mighty God we serve. You and your beautiful wife and daughter are a living testimony to just how great and loving our heavenly Father is. To God be the glory!! Have a safe trip home.

Awesome!!! What a wonderful end to this chapter of your lives! I'm sad to know that your life will go on without us all in it (as often) but SO thrilled that you can all start living this miraculous life normally!Can't wait to hear about the family reunion and see some homecoming video (wink, wink)! Please update as often as possible, please! You've changed my life in so many ways - making me more patient, smarter about cf and micropreemies, more spiritual, more appreciative of my healthy children and spouse, and appreciative to sleep in my own bed and not a cot! Blessings in your travels home. What a beautiful place to call "home"!Your family seems so great. I have to admit I'm a bit jealous that you have so much support! Keep us updated on the Great Strides '08 walk when you can, too!Thanks for allowing me to spend the last 5 months with you, Tric and Gwyn!refreshing in ohio, now less often :(

Awesome news!!! So happy for you guys. Praying for a quick, safe move back home. I know you will be so blessed to be in the presence of family and friends again.
How exciting! I hope by the time you read this - you are safe at home!
What a joy that today has come!!!!!!! We'll be praying for you three as you make the trip home today. I can't imagine the emotions as you'll pull into the Outer Banks & Tricia, as you see the ocean once again. I'll be thinking of you all & praying for you all day long!
What wonderful news! Have a safe trip home. God Bless You all.
Wonderful news!I have been praying for this day for some time now. So happy for you all. GOD IS GOOD!!!!!!!!!!
That's exciting news! We're on the OBX this week. The weather's nice and the water's warm....a perfect week for a homecoming!
Good for you! Have a safe journey!
Wooooooooo Hooooooo! Praying for travelling mercies and an uneventful drive home to OBX... its been a long time coming.I'm sure the donor's family would be VERY proud to see you as you are welcomed home to OBX! We're still praying for them, too. I'm sure that Tricia has a very special guardian angel watching over her and all of you on this journey... his name is Zach, and his battle with CF unfortunately ended last Friday morning. I'm convinced that he is keeping close watch over your family now.
I love the new picture at the top of your blog! Have a safe trip home. What a journey this has been for the 3 of you!Sincerely,Amy

You have a tremendous ability to share your faith and to bring the Word of God into the lives and hearts of so many. May His blessings be abundant for you always!
Congratulations!Nate, I can't seem to e-mail you as I don't remember my .mac account password and the link to e-mail you won't just tell me your e-mail address. I wanted to e-mail you a video I made recently. Due to the amazing year my family and I have experienced this past year, my dad has decided to participate in Gear Up 4 CF. GearUp4CF is a crazy fundraiser where my dad will cycle from Vancouver to Calgary (aprox. 1200Km, 746 miles) over 3 mountain ranges. It will take 9 days and all along the way he will raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. I know you have many Canadian readers and believers. I was wondering if you could post the video to gain awareness for the ride in British Columbia and Alberta. The video link is....http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=zCYaJVu-e6gThank you very much Nate!God Bless,Eva(7.5 months post double lung transplant)65redroses.livejournal.com
Just got out my atlas and stared at that road going east from Durham to the ocean, trying to imagine where you might be at this time of the day, on your journey home! My imagination went a bit wild, and I could see people all along the way, waving signs that said things like "Yeah, God! The Lawrensons are going HOME!" Smiling all day while praying for safe travels! What a Mighty God we serve!
Nate:I thought I read earlier where your family was on the road and headed home. I must have dreamed it as I was checking back to see if you had arrived.I'll begin praying just in case.Best wishes, dp
