In the last year since we have learned more about Claire’s (“Lauren Claire” to me) miraculous story we are in awe of God and his goodness to each of us in regards to Lauren Claire and her life. This week I have been reading through my journals from the time we were waiting and hoping for a baby and specifically the dates when she was in the womb.
So many thoughts are swirling through my head as I reflect on that time our life and now I see even more of God’s faithfulness.
One of my entries on May 9, 1988 (she had been home with us for 5 days):
“We have our sweet little girl at home! I can’t believe it! She is precious! The morning we went to the hospital to get her I woke so early like the day I got married…. so grateful and humbled to be embarking on a new chapter of life!”
“She is SOOOOOOO precious! I can’t believe she is ours!!
I still can’t believe it!! God is so good!
I am passionate about life & God in a down-to-earth & personal way.
