Work of God

I just wanted to share some pictures and a verse that I saw on another Trisomy 13 baby's blog. Evan was more than likely blind. He only really opened his eyes once that I saw. An opthamologist told us he would be severly sight impaired, this is very common with Trisomy 13 babies. Anyway, when I saw this verse it just really hit me. I know that Evan had a purpose here and I know that God does not make mistakes so there is a reason for this and this verse just really hit me.
As He went along, He saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" "Neither this man or his parents sinned," Jesus said "but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life." John 9:1-3

I am so sorry. My heart cries out for your loss. Truly understand your feeling now as I lost my baby angel Rayvin due to Trisomy 18 almost 8 months ago & it still hurts till today.
Baby angel Evan will always be with you, forever ...

Take care.

I just stumbled upon your blog through Bring the Rain, and just wanted to tell you how deeply grieved I am for you and your family.

I lost my daughter, Grace, to a cord accident in November. And even after living through the trauma of losing my child, I still don't have anything profound to say to someone who has experienced a similar loss.

I'm praying for you guys.

Wow Monica, what a powerful word from the Lord. I can already see God using Evan's life, even from the day you found out his heart was not working properly and you chose to carry him and protect him no matter what that may mean to you. And then, when he was born, and the unexpected happened, your love for him was a testimony to all. I know the Lord is saying, "well done, good and faithful servant." His life will continue to proclaim God's glory. I am praying for you on this day and always. Love,Rhonda

Monica, I pray for peace to surround your family and the love and comfort that only He can give to you right now. I cannot begin to imagine your pain and hurt right now, but I know that I will lift you up in prayer to the One that heals us. It is my privilege!

~Sending much love and healing prayers your way. I too lost a son to Trisomy 13, nearly 2 yrs ago. His 2nd Heavenly birthday is approaching on March 29th. He passed away 8 day later, on Good Friday, April 6th. Every Easter will be spent remembering the wonderful gift that he was to us.

I have a blog for him also, which has many support links on it. He has inspired me to help spread comfort and awareness to not only Trisomy, but other birth defects as well. May you receive much strength, comfort, and peace in your heart during this difficult time of remembrance. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers, to help you along your healing journey. Love, peace, & Nimkee blessings....Melissa~^Angel^Bennett-Chadlen's Mum (((BIG HUGS)))
