A Special Thank You

You gave us hope to dream of the family we desired.
You instilled in us a confidence which over-rode our uncertainty.
With faith, prayer and assurance we took a step forward into the world of possibility.
Still tender from past experiences, you continuously assured and reassured us,
redirecting our sights towards a positive end.
Hope and peace were born out of your encouragement.
A five year journey - a son, a still-born baby, a miscarriage and a daughter.
A journey of great joy, loss, growth, hope, trust, faith, death and life.
Through you, God showed us His loving-kindness and care.
The laughter prescribed in your rooms in regular doses, was the best medicine.
We watched your team inject life, hope and confidence into all those under your care. 
May God continuously bless you with His wisdom and strength as you serve Him
and the countless families that He puts under your care.
We are so grateful to God for you and our family.

"The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you
and give you peace." (Numbers 6:24)

For This Child I Prayed

"... and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of Him.."

1 Samuel 1:17

Thank you Lord for entrusting this precious life to us to raise, nurture and love.
You knew of her coming. Through our loss, Your plan and will were being fulfilled.
Leah May, destined and known from the beginning of time to be born for Your own good purpose and glory.
All of our children, here and in eternity, born according to Your will and plan.
A future generation to be touched by her life. A future that You know of, and one that we cannot begin to dream or imagine. Whose lives will she touch? What gifts will we see? What will her desires be? May her crowning achievement be to know You as Saviour.
Lord, to your eternal purpose we commit this new life. May Your will be done in her and through her.
My heart gives thanks to the One who gives and takes away - blessed be Your name.
