Our baby girl turns 11-months-old today. And because in the complete story of her tiny warrior life such a day is something to celebrate, we rejoice over her life even if for the moment it is passing by away from home. Today also marks two-months since we passed court and Lulu legally became our girl. Two months more of fight, battling for a life so incredibly worth it. Psalm 139 was written for you Lulu:
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.
You are loved beyond comprehension sweet Lu. You are worth fighting for. You have always been worth fighting for. You will always be worth fighting for. We celebrate you and your 11-months!
All our Love,
Mama, Daddy, Emma & Asher
*We captured a lot of video of our time together in November. Emma has each second memorized, and often wakes every morning asking to watch her baby sister again, as if her dreams were filled with the memories waiting to be written between sisters. Today we thought we would share one clip with you all to celebrate Lulu.
Pat - She’s beautiful. Praying for you all.
sarahrichmond - Thank you Pat – pray you are well and that God is restoring in abundance what was stolen from you, friend.
