Daniel is evidence of a little miracle baby and their story is a testimony of a living God and just how amazing God's hand is over a pregnancy and just reminds me once again how perfect His timing is and His plan for us and not ours.
This was Clerissa's first post after Daniel was born, my heart was broken for them but I couldn't be more inspired by their faith and obedience during this time.
"Daniel was diagnosed with a diaphragmatic hernia and was rushed to the NICU. That is where our little boy’s fight started. Two heart-broken parents had to deal with a very scary situation from the moment Daniel took his first precious breath. Daniel received his operation on Sunday and he did so well. He is now stable and resting and recovering and getting strong so we can fight and make it through this long journey together.
We are grateful for his life, we are so in love with him and we know he is strong and he has a whole army of support, love and care surrounding him.
Three things I have learned since Daniel’s birth;
- There is no greater love than a mother’s love. There is also no greater sorrow than a mother’s sorrow.
- My husband is the biggest blessing God could gift me with. My rock, my hero (our hero), the strongest and most incredible Godly man who is leading and carrying his little family with faith, hope and strength.
- Our God is a God of miracles. He will never let us down, He is with us every step of the way. His love envelopes us and Daniel every second. He is a God of grace and mercy, we love Him and put our son in His capable and healing hands. We know He will get our boy through this battle and has pathed such a God-honouring path for our brave Daniel.
We only ask for prayers for our precious angel boy, he is our entire world and each day we celebrate the small victories that God sends our way, amen.
‘Don’t be afraid, for you are very precious to God. Peace! Be encouraged! Be Strong!’
Daniel is now a healthy baby boy and they are so blessed.
Thank you for letting me share in this very special time.
