Emily Jean was born at 3:16 pm (she weighed 3 lbs, 13 oz., 15"). Although we prayed for months for a live birth our Lord had other plans. She gave one last goodbye kick to Laura only minutes before her birth.
With anencephaly Emily couldn't think or reason
yet she was the one on that afternoon who understood.
Emily was blind but in that moment she beheld the face of Jesus.
Our daughter was deaf yet at that time she heard the voice of our Lord...
"Well done, Emily, my good and faithful servant."
Well done, Emily. Mommy and Daddy are proud of you, too.
We love you so much.
