I learned today that our baby was a little boy! His name is David Jonathan, and he is with his big sister, Lily Hope, in Heaven. I am sad that I won’t get to meet him on this earth, but I will never, ever, regret that he was conceived! God is the author of life, and he does not make mistakes. I don’t know God’s reasons, but I do know His ways are perfect and I can trust Him.
David means, “beloved, friend,” and Jonathan means, “God has given.” It is so sweet to think of Lily and David, sister and brother, friends together in Heaven! God HAS given us this precious gift, and we just have to wait a while until we get to meet him. David was made to live forever. He and Lily will be waiting for us.
