Miracles Happen... and David is Proof!!!
David's story is about a Heroic little boy who has managed to inspire the world with his strength, courage, and smile. His journey can remind us all to remain faithful, hopeful, believe, and Smile!
I share our journey openly. It is real, raw, and uncut, and although I share our faith, miracles, and blessing, I also honestly share the ugly truth about what parenting a child with special needs sometimes entails.
For the mother I do not have, God has given me an exceptional
spiritual mother (Joan). For the local family support system I do not have, God
has given me a church family that has superseded my expectations. For the sisters I never had the opportunity
to grow up with, God gave me amazing friends and an amazing
sister-in-law.(Carmen, Christina, Noel, Martha, and Dayna).
For the additional children I'd like to have God gave me a
classroom full of them, a church full of them, a world full of them, and
beautiful nieces and nephews to share my love with . For the father David has
not had the opportunity to have, God has
given us amazing men for him to look up to (Jeff, Jason, and Ed).
So what if the white picket fence I have always dreamed of,
in all reality is a chain-link fence that keep the children I love at school
safe and educated? What if the hero I have been waiting for to save me, showed
up 17 years ago in the form of an innocent child who would teach me to
love, and show me how to be courageous
and brave. Just what if… the night in shining armor I've been waiting
for has already come in the form of the best soul mate a girl could ask for, a
savior that would die for my sins.
What if we are wasting so much time focusing on the things
we are yet to have that we are not allowing ourselves to enjoy the things God
has already given us????
God allows us to paint our own pictures and then when we are
ready he comes in and makes those pictures masterpieces.
