"Everyday holds the possibility of a Miracle."
Monday, October 17, 2011
As I write this a fellow NH mom waits in a NICU beside her child, hoping and praying for life. It has been such a blessing to be connected to fellow NH mom's who know the bitterness of the sudden death of their little ones, and witness their journeys toward healing through the treatment of a subsequent pregnancy as we are now attempting. And yet, as the past two to deliver have been compromised by NH, my heart cries out selfishly - please God not us! The last place that I ever wanted to be again was the NICU - the very smell of the floor as the elevator opens turns my stomach. It is inevitable that we will be there, but I pray that it is only for the 24 hours for tests to come back perfect! I hope and I pray for a miracle - I long to spend the next 16 weeks down on my knees never moving from the feet of my Savior begging for a miracle, weeping for one. Not only for the healthy birth of our child, but that tests come back perfectly normal - no sign of involvement with NH - so that not only can we bring a healthy child into our home but that I can nourish that child myself. Sometimes I fear that I should not ask - I should just go with the flow and live with the fact that God is the only one in charge of what will or will not happen and not insert myself into it. But, I am a mother and I am already desperately in love with my child and I want the best, hope for the best, and want to believe. There isn't a moment that goes by that my heart isn't issuing silent prayers for a miracle - a true - Soli Deo Gloria miracle! I know that I will love, live, and believe no matter what happens, but yet I pray my selfish mother's heart prayer for a completely healthy miracle by none other then our God. "My God...My God...deliver us safely through!"
