To Him be the glory

Pin It As I watch her chest rise and fall, my hands tremble at the miracle of her life. We are witnesses to Gods love in action! Witnesses of Gods answered prayer and faithfulness. 









 I fall before Him in thanksgiving and can hardly breath as I think of the magnitude of my love for this little girl. I held her for the first time 46 days ago. I told her I love her over 100 times that day and I wept as I kissed her and promised to love her forever no matter what. And my love for her has taught me that faith is undefinable, and love is indescribable.

Praises be to God!!! So glad He has put your family together and intertwined your love, that she has her mama getting her through this an loving her every single moment. What a beautiful post--so full of love, an Ivy :) Continued prayers that she grow stronger with each passing moment until she is running around with her sibs and wearing you out :)

Mary,
Our family has been praying for Ivy through this all. We were our bracelets to remind us of her all through out the day. My little China man went through this same surgery two years ago. It is so beautiful watching God work on His angels. Continuing to pray for sweet Ivy. Wearing her bracelet until she is home.
Love,
Lyn

So happy to see those pink piggies ;)

Suzette said...

I remember wondering before we adopted how on earth I would ever love an adopted child the same as my birth children. ONLY GOD! There just is no difference. The love that grew in our hearts before we even met is the most amazing gift I could ever experience. We are so blessed by the love He has allowed us to share in as mommies to these blessings! So glad to see Ivy doing better. Prayers continuing!

Even with everything Ivy has been through she looks absolutely beautiful. Love the bows!

I am over the moon thrilled to see her doing so well. We continue to pray that her healing goes smoothly.

Mary, your strength is inspiring. My daughter had ear surgery six weeks after she was home and I was a wreak. Your grace during this time is amazing.

Blessings from CT.

He is your praise and He is your God, who has done these great and awesome things for you which your eyes have seen ... Deut 10:21.
