So Much to be Thankful for!

17-DSC_0608-37 Despite genetic testing and ultrasound results that showed the precursors to Cystic Fibrosis, the results of Lo’s screening came back and she’s in the clear! Praise the Lord! A huge thank you to everyone who poured out their prayers over our little baby.

As challenging as these first few weeks as a new parent have been, getting the results back from her test reminded me of how blessed we are to have a healthy baby.

By no small coincidence, earlier today I was watching a Joyce Meyers broadcast on raising special needs children. As I sat there with tears streaming down my face, I was reminded of just how precious and purpose-filled EACH and EVERY life is. One of my personal favorite examples is a girl at my church who stands at the front to pray over anyone who comes forward and has need. Despite having down syndrome, she understands God’s love better than most people in this world and wants to help others in their struggles.

If you know someone with a special needs child I highly recommend watching this video. Even if you don’t, watch it anyway and get your Kleenex ready.
