One year ago today, my deepest fears were obliterated and a new life began for us all.
This baby girl has given me a new purpose. She's given me a love that reaches higher to my God, deeper for my family, and spreads out to countless others I would never have seen before her.
All those months of begging, pleading, and crying out to Jesus for Him to take away my daughter’s Down syndrome, and that morning, exactly one year ago this morning, I was faced with the realization that His answer was ‘No’.
‘No, sweetheart. I know you don’t understand now, but one day you will.’
And He was right.
8“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the LORD.
9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
