I think of all of you

Well.... after several attempts I have finally learned how to post one of these.

And now I find myself not knowing what to type or say. I guess my desire to post was initially driven by the overwhelming emotion that comes from CARE from others. We have been so blessed by your emails, your comments, your calls and your prayers. Often, when I am thinking of Madeline, I think of all of you. I think of what this all means. What does this all mean? I do believe that my God can cure my little girl if that is in His plan. But, if it is not, then... I do believe her life has a purpose. That purpose is "what" I ask.... "What does this all mean?" How will her life make a difference? I WANT her life to make a difference. And.... She already has!!! She has made you pause in your busy life to care for another. Her life has brought you to your knees to pray for another. And for some of you, it has been for someone that you have never met. This is a compassion that can can only come from God. This makes our God smile. And I cannot tell you what this means to our family. Thank you for you support and prayers and for keeping Madeline's life meaningful. Keep us in your prayers as we continue this journey. I look forward to our next visit to the doctor so I can see her on the sonogram.

Mandy texted me today.... "Madeline just kicked to remind me to tell you she loves you" I can't wait to tell her in person how much she is loved by all of you.... and her Daddy!

What a sweet post! You're right, God has a purpose. We don't always know the "why", but we know that HE has one. There are alot of us praying and thinking about your family. Keep us updated when you can.

Mandy and Brian, John and I wanted to tell you that we are praying for you and your little girl. There are soo many praying for you, you just don't know and Madeline does have a purpose, you are right and it was a good point that those praying for your family is part of that purpose. Keep us updated.

Brian, your posting brought tears to my eyes. I know that this journey has been so hard for you and your whole family but from the beginning of it all God has had a plan. It would be so much easier if his plans always made sense but sometimes that's our lesson in life is to figure his plans out. Through these kinds of journeys we only become stronger people. I am so proud and happy for you and Mandy and continue to pray for all of you.
