This was written to me from my best friend's mother. She has a way with words that amazes me and I wanted to share it with all of you who are along with us in this journey. Thank you again to all who are praying. We love you!
Thank you, Sweetie, for walking thru this impossible time with such grace & faith, with your eyes fixed on the One Who sees. He loves you more than you can possibly imagine, and He appointed you to be Dylan's Mommy for such a time as this. And everyone who comes near to know Dylan's story will hear the truth, because Jesus has given your courageous heart the desire to carry His Message to us.
It is NOT FAIR that this happened, but you know that He allows unthinkable events in our lives to accomplish His perfect purpose - because you & Eric are being taken to the next level of maturity (Ready or not!); because He will use this to benefit others in infinite ways that He, in His perfect sovereignty, gets to decide; to make us grateful; to reorder our priorities; to prompt us to encourage and affirm each other; to empty us out; and because the countless intercessory prayers of the saints as we bear you to the Throne are making a lovely fragrance in Heaven.
I remember how you GLOWED when you were preggers (when I smiled at your pic of the preg test, Em said you were so stinkin' excited when you found out.) God smiled, too, because He knew He was about to take you thru your greatest adventure - free-falling, without radar or even a clue, knowing only that you are cupped in His hands. That's all you need to know.
Love & Hugs,
