My darling Olivia is turning 3 today! She is my youngest, my last biological child, and the child that taught me the most about the power of prayer. Because of spots that had shown up on an early ultrasound, there was a lot of speculation leading up to Olivia’s birth as to what kind of medical conditions she may be born with. A LOT of people were praying, all over the United States and the world. They were praying for a perfect baby, and I often joke today that she turned out a little too perfect! (HAHA) I was going back through some pictures today and came across the facebook note I had written, 3 months after her birth. Since I didn’t have this blog at that point, I figured today was as good as any to share the story here!
Further testing was risky, so we would never really know the true condition of our baby until she was born. In the mean time, word started spreading and we called on prayer warriors all across the United States and the world! I have seen God work this way in other people’s lives, but never have I felt the personal affects of it hit so close to home. We were and still are amazed at the power of prayer and number of people we’ve learned had been praying for us.
