videos of Ella dancing:
You all have walked this journey with us through prayer and we thank you! We thank you for going to the Lord on our behalf as we know He chose to work many miracles in Ella's life and as a result we got to have this amazing experience. Now we pray and ask you to join us as we are venturing out more for God's continued protection over Ella's health and ours as we care for her! For wisdom in finding that balance of letting her participate in the outside world of yucky germs. Pray for her heart, lungs, liver, and immune system to stay strong! Pray for my anxiety as I learn to switch my mindset and for Jon as he strives to lead us in the way that God wants us to go. Your prayers and support fill our hearts with thanksgiving, we are so grateful for you! Seeing these pictures again today, I am reminded of the day I set in the doctor's office at about 25 weeks pregnant, where we found out the extent of the complexity of our unborn daughter's heart, and that she only had a 20% chance to live. That is the day I was offered an abortion. Today I mourn for all the mommies who have received bad news about their unborn child and choose to abort not knowing what could have been. Today I mourn for those who chose to fight for their child but had the outcome that we feared we would face. Life is a gift however long or short it is. Feeling thankful that I was raised with the understanding of the sanctity of life. My child is not a statistic, she is a child of the King perfectly created to bring Him glory! Praise the Lord!
