our Audrey Joy

I am obviously not a graphic designer, but I wanted some way to have a memorial for her on our blog. (We already have a painted frame in our home & a sweet ornament from our adoption agency with her name engraved on it with this saying "If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever."

Remembering you today baby girl. And trusting that you are in the loving arms of your Heavenly Father.

We continue to pray for baby R... still waiting on news. Still hoping in the Lord and waiting expectantly that He has heard our cries and is healing baby R's body of the malaria and stomach bug even now.

 "5For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
   for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
   my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7On God rests my salvation and my glory;
   my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
 8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
   God is a refuge for us. "
Psalm 62:5-8

Thanks for the encouraging scripture this morning Danielle! We are so encouraged and thankful for all the amazing brothers and sisters in Christ that God has put in our lives, especially all of our church family at Immanuel! We praise God for you!

Praying & Waiting on the Lord,

  1. So sweet. We too lost our baby girl, Emery Joy from DRC, before she could come home. It is a unique kind of grief that most people cannot relate to. Our son Jackson came home from DRC in June and has been such a blessing to our family. Praying that Baby R is home with you soon!
