To God be the Glory.
After reading an e-mail signed “Soli Deo Gloria”…I immediately googled for a translation. I melted into a puddle and wept.
I received a comment on my blog this week from the mother of a baby that had received a Quilting for Babes quilt and sleeper from the IMCN. She asked for my address so that she could send a proper thank you and picture. I eagerly obliged, and also got the following e-mail from her. I know all who have participated and followed this project will be equally as touched as I was…
M***** is our second living preemie. She was born on June 18th via an emergency c-section because the Drs. found that my uterus was rupturing. She is a miracle...a few hours more inutero or Drs. that weren't really on top of things medically and she would not be here with us. We are blessed. I am so thankful to God for allowing her to stay here with us.
M***** is our 3 1/2 year old who was a 30 week preemie...he is excited to see his sister wear the cupcake sleeper that we received from you! (No dull moments with him!)
We have two daughters waiting for us in heaven. M***** was 28 weeks gestation when she had the world's first inutero open-heart surgery at Stanford University...she did not survive the surgery. A***** died at 35 weeks when my uterus ruptured without warning. There were years of tears... So thankful that we are blessed with two living children :)
Thanks for your time and energy in making the quilts. They are beautiful!
Soli Deo Gloria, T***** and A****”
I see a family with amazing perspective, gratitude to a loving God who is surely getting all the Glory from their situation. My heart breaks for their years of tears, and rejoices for their 2 little miracles.
Soli Deo Gloria.
