I can't even begin to tell all of you who follow our journey through this blog how much your words, prayers and thoughts mean to us. Today has been especially hard for mommy and it's been encouraging to hear from so many of you. We feel so supported and lifted up in prayer and thank each of you for that. I've often struggled with opening up to people about hardship because I feel vulnerable or feel like I have to be the strong one and in turn I tend to bottle things up. But I've learned that hardship, suffering and loss can bring people together in a beautiful way. There is so much compassion and love we have felt from this community around us and I'm so grateful. Many of you have shared how our story has touched you or how our baby girl Alex has inspired you and that's the beautiful way God works when we walk through the valley. We learn and grow through adversity and faith and in the end we are stronger. Thanks to those that reminded us God is here every step of the way and that He is taking care of our little Alex. We are comforted knowing she is in His hands.
