She would be 7 this December. And even though it has been years since Selah died, I still remember the moment when the pit in my stomach formed. Surrounded by tubes and wires, I leaned heavy against the hospital bed. Our doctor’s brimming eyes spoke volumes as she fumbled through an explanation of what Pompe was doing [Read More…]

Jesus love me

I checked out from writing over the summer because we were moving and… Well, there was just a lot of LIFE happening around here.
