Our Gift

Filed under: Uncategorized — by andrewandtiffanyporter @ 4:44 pm

We found out yesterday that our baby boy has a mild form of cerebral palsy.  His MRI shows a spot on the left side of his brain that has not developed like it is supposed to and is causing him to not use the right side of his body as much.  This is hard and very overwhelming at times, but we are very encouraged and feel so loved and supported by the Lord, family and friends.  We were met at home after our appointment by friends and family to pray over Jack and it was so powerful to see the body of Christ respond in this way again.  This is the third time we have seen this happen in the last 2 weeks and I can’t even begin to tell you how much this has ministered to us. 

We are still praying and believing in His healing power and have confidence that Jack is going to be out in the backyard one of these days playing soccer and basketball with his brother Will!  We start physical therapy next week and are ready to begin this journey. 

I think Andrew said it best last night when we were talking about everything.  He told me that he was driving back to work after we found this out and he was about to start questioning God and asking “why?”  But, instead he started saying, “thank you, thank you, thank you for my son.”  Jack has brought us so much joy and the Lord is all over his face.  I can’t help but praise His name for the gift he has given me. 

Sons are a heritage from the Lord,children a reward from him.  Psalm 127:3
