As tears streamed down my face, as I pleaded with God, not to take my baby girl , these very words were whispering to me.
He will use you to accomplish
great things on the condition that
you believe much more in His love
than in your own weakness.As I watched our daughter have her 5th seizure in two days, I had to give myself to Him at that very moment. I had to trust in God to protect her. I wanted to share our Faith – the Faith we had to hold strong during a very trying time in our lives.
A blessing shows itself…..
At the time, Emily was 18 months old and very slow to hit childhood milestones. We had a feeling something was wrong…..but were never quite sure what. After several tests and no answers to follow, we decided to let her spread her wings on her own time.
Emily was hospitalized during this time.
Dr.’s ordered a CAT scan, blood work and eventually an MRI, which led to answers & Emily receives a diagnosis – Chromosome 17q21.31 Microdeletion Syndrome.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers,
whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your
faith develops perseverance.
