It has been 20 days since you were born and I have to tell you that it has been the longest twenty days of our lives. There are really no words to describe the emotions that we have been through as a family. Nor are there words to explain to you what you have done to our hearts. You, my sweet girl, consume us. So much so that I fear it is unfair to your sweet sisters that only want you to come home.
In twenty days you have shown us how much we can take. How much we can love. How much we can trust. How tired we can be, yet still moving. How many things we can do without actually thinking about doing them. How blessed we are by the people that love us and the people that love them. How incredible our God truly is. In twenty days you have changed our lives and as we love you more and more each day, it is hard to believe that we have ever been without you.
Josie, you are amazing. You are the strongest person I have ever met and a perfect picture of a miracle. We are blown away by your strength, your courage and the way the Lord is using you to change lives. Mama and daddy love you more than words can say. We are literally begging Jesus to keep you healthy so that you can come home and be with us. We are praying with every breath that we will have the opportunity to raise you with these two precious people that already fill our home. The three of you are our whole lives, our everything.
Jesus loves you Josie Hope, He has great plans for you. He will protect you and heal you and carry you until you are ready to come home. Mama knows in her heart that He is there holding you everyday. So you rest my sweet Josie. Rest in Him and He will do the work.
