“We never expected that we would be blessed to meet such extraordinary people as a result of our daughter’s special needs – people that have enriched our lives and shown us the closest thing to the perfect love of God.”
I said that at a Parents Group, two nights ago…
When the teachers at Rhema’s school set up chairs, brought baked goods and refreshments, stayed late and cleaned up afterwards because they love our children and our families
When Laura came to the house bearing gifts and stayed with the girls so Brandon and I could attend the meeting
When I could look into the eyes of mama friends, old and new, and know that they know and be comforted by that
When we could celebrate our children and cling to hope
When the encouragement and inspiration that comes from sharing the journey with friends – in real life and online – gives you enough to keep going…
Just grateful for the gift of community. For family. For the children that connect us.
