We are running to our newest daughter, Eviemira, waiting for us in China! This fundraiser will help to bring our 8th child home, where she belongs!
We're leaving for China in just a few more days!!!
Though we are experiencing the greatest darkness of our lives, it is in the blackest of nights that we have learned that
"even the darkness is light to Him."
When our greatest fear became our slaying reality by losing our precious Gianna, His Truth and goodness and Light have been tenderly guiding us through the blinding wilderness when we can't see with our own frail human eyes.
When the Darkness has taken away our sight, He has literally hunted us down with Mercy and given us new eyes to see His Illuminated goodness which far exceeds our own understanding.
In our deepest anguish, We have learned the sacred truths that in Him there is nothing to fear, because He has overcome even the grave!!!....and THAT. changes. EVERYTHING.
"He is our light and our Salvation." (ps. 27:1)
Our precious Gianna (who went home to Heaven on April 22, 2018) and her forever life will always be a reflection of His LIGHT, of His goodness and THE HOPE of His unbreakable, UNDENIABLE TRUTH.... Her brave life teaches us to SEE God's TRUTH of hope in our darkest season.
The gift of Her brave life has taught us how to keep growing and believing for His Goodness even when we can't feel it.
Her life has taught us the courage to fiercely wrestle and fight for HOPE & LIFE... Which doesn't take the deep ache or pain away...(only Heaven can heal that deep pain) yet, in our deepest pits, we aggressively take ahold of the things that are Eternal over that which is temporary!
...To give purpose to the deep pain.
To unashamedly fight for love and hope and to choose the LIGHT of TRUTH even while walking through our deepest night.
Our GiaBia's Beautiful life & the goodness of His LIGHT, the beautiful promise that We WILL be reunited with her one day, All 10 of us together on the shores of Eternity with Jesus, have boldly led us to our newest daughter in China, our Eviemira, who also needs the gift of love, hope, and light in her darkness.
Gianna's Miracles Go on Forever and Ever.
Her brave eternal heartbeats continue to echo God's banner of LIGHT and HOPE!
The eternal gift of her life daily teaches us that LOVE is always worth the brave jump out into the deep!
Hope is always worth the risk!
We are changed forever by the miracle of our brave and sassy Gianna Lilyfaith..and now She is going to be a big sissy!
The Miracles of New Life!
Thank you for bringing Light and Hope to the darkness with us! We are beyond Grateful for our village of Love and Light! Thank you for helping us run to our Eviemira baby!!! We are SO CLOSE!!!
