O Lord that lends me life, Lend me a heart replete with thankfulness. ~William Shakespeare
Our family has felt overwhelmingly blessed by the amount of friends and family we have supporting, caring, loving, praying, giving to us during this time. The number of churches who continue to pray for our daughter, the number of people in different countries who know of our situation is amazing. We feel extraordinarily loved.
It is definitely hard to fight this battle and we certainly know we are not doing it alone.
One of the things that most doctors and nurses comment on when they meet Sephine is her name...sparking a lot of conversation. When we named Sephine, we named her because my father had aunt named Josephine. We didn't name her because of what it meant, but purely for the uniqueness and "family-ness" of it. During this time Doug and I have realized that we named her perfectly.
The Hebrew meaning of (Jo)Sephine is "God will increase".
Thank you for all for being a part of this with us. For increasing the amount of love that surrounds us everyday! Happy Thanksgiving!
