Thank God for the 6 years of being this close to such a precious gift. For being able to parent someone special means a lot. I may not fully understood it at the start of our journey together but by the grace of God I now am thankful for the girl that she is. I can now see the gift I have in her.
I appreciate my husband more because of her. What I lack in patience, he lends me or he shows me how. Now am not saying I am full of patience ha, I still struggle, but He who strengthens me makes me able to do impossible things. For 6 years her dad has shown her so much love and I just thank God for giving me a wonderful husband.
Thea is a gift to her little brother, I know it will take more guidance and intentional parenting to let him see this gift. I pray for God's help, for only he could speak to the heart.
If a person knows someone with special needs he is changed for life. What more if that person is part of the family. He will be more sensitive, more loving, more caring, not judgmental but compassionate. He will exhibit generosity not only by gifts but of patience and understanding. He will be more thankful that he can do with ease some people struggle to do. He will embrace his uniqueness and appreciate the differences of everyone.
My dear Thea, you made me a better person. My strength has been tested, over and over, I stumbled, gotten up, stumbled again and fell but you kept on loving Mommy. My heart sometimes felt like it was stabbed and got broken but your hug and your kiss mends all heartaches and heartbreak.
"Here I am to worship, Here I am to bow down, Here I am to say that you're my God"
That's the song I heard you sang. I pray that one day God will grant the desires of our hearts that you will able to worship with us and say that to Jesus. We love and will continue to pray for and with you. May He continue to use you in the purpose He has for you. Me and your dad are holding on to the promise that the greatness of the Lord will be revealed in you in His time. Know that we love you very much.
Oh have i mentioned she can now read? Thank you Lord!
