How do you trust God with your children when you get news that is unimaginable? Does he love us? Does he work all things for our good? If those things are true, then God can be trusted even when something is wrong with our child.
Walking into the building brought back so many feelings. The smells, the colors, the smiles from friendly staff, it all washed over me with a wave of memories. A smile crept onto my face. This was a place where miracles happened for me.
My kids and I had gone with Lucy for her first stress test. Her pediatric cardiologists had asked for her to do one around the time she turned 9 so they could see how her repaired heart functions under stress. They’ll know what “normal” looks like for her.
Lucy is my miracle baby. That’s her above, days before she had open-heart surgery at only 5-days-old. They lost her twice on the operating table when they tried to get the repaired heart going. And yet on this summer day she marched into this hospital full of life and energy, ready to take on the challenge of a stress test like she takes on most new things in life. There’s a reason we call her “Fearless Lucy.”
