And Then She Smiled...


Isn't it amazing how God gives you what you need right when you need it? The last week has been a little rough, but today when I went in to see Emy she practically smiled the entire time. It does a momma's heart good to see her baby smile (even if she's not aware that she's doing it). We rejoice in the smallest things these days; small victories, small special moments in time - we are thankful for them all. I thank God for today.

She is beautiful! :) We are all still praying.. you definitely have prayers coming from all directions. We're praying from CO, IN, and OH. There is a convent full of prayers for you in Mishawaka, IN (my sister is a nun). Stay strong.. our family went through something similar 5 years ago, and my adorable 5-yr old godson is proof that prayers WORK MIRACLES!

Found you through Great Hopes blog. My prayers are with you. It's great that things are looking up, and I hope you get to hold her very soon.

Ang,

I'm so glad she smiled for you. I hope you get to hold her soon. We're all praying everyday that she'll get stronger and bigger. We love all of you so much.
