Today, March 4, 2012, was our second child's due date.
We will never have the privilege of meeting our sweet baby on this earth, but my sadness is replaced by peace and joy as I imagine him or her being in the presence of Jesus each and every day. A part of me yearns to be right there as well, kissing those sweet cheeks as we worship our Savior.
Thank you, Father, for creating a new life, even if it was a short life of only 10 weeks in our eyes. We are humbled and grateful for our second child.
As we processed our grief, we knew that we wanted to remember our little one. We prayed this baby's life would have a lasting impact here on the earth, not just in his or her Mommy and Daddy's hearts. With God's gentle guidance, we decided to sponsor a Compassion child.
I am honored to introduce Epen (short for Stevan), born on March 4, 2002........
Whenever I look at Epen, I see a precious child of God in need of love and basic needs, just as our child would have been. My Hero and I are so thankful to have the opportunity to impact his life.
So, today, we are singing Happy Birthday to Epen, the little boy who holds my heart in a deep, special way.
659. Honoring the life of our second child by impacting the life of a very special boy named Epen.
