A New Kind of Love

This is such a touching, powerful post! Please continue to keep this dear family and beautiful baby in your thoughts and prayers! Thank you!

Even So, Joy

Brennan and I have gone through what seems like a lifetime of emotions in the past three months. From such joy and love in seeing our baby grow and learn, to sorrow and grief over her terminal diagnosis.

We are living out our wedding vows in a completely new way – “in sickness and in health.” I never thought about that applying to our children as well.

    • thank you so much for your prayers! I shared one of her posts once before on here and decided it was time for another, this one just touched me so much. I can’t imagine their incredible pain, but they are being so strong through it. A strong witness to their faith! Every time I see one of her posts come up on my feed, I am captivated Tori’s face, her big eyes. Feel free to “follow” her, you can go back then and see the beginning of their story. Thanks for that touching song!
