Now, 16 years later, we are blessed with four children that we love so much and a love between my husband and I that will last a lifetime. We look back on that time quite often when we almost lost our son because of fear of our future. We almost lost everything.
Even now, with the hustle and bustle of a big and busy family, in between basketball practices and swim team, when I’m cooking dinner in the kitchen and the kids are playing games in the living room, my husband will walk up behind me and put his arms around me and whisper in my ear, “Thank you for being the strong one. Thank you for choosing life even in my weakest moment. Thank you for choosing us.”
And I look up to God and thank Him for the blessings he has given us.
