Not only have we been inspired by the children who have fought through this before, our own son is an inspiration. Caleb fought through many things when he was born. His first couple of years were filled with many doctors appointments, surgeries and emotional ups and downs. Born with right-hip dysplasia, we barely even notice now that he had this at birth.
Caleb asks us to pray with him each night at his bedside. "Dadda, can you pray..?" We'll respond, "Sure, Caleb. What would you like to pray for?"
Without ever asking him to specifically pray for Jordan, "God, thank you for baby Jordan in Momma's tummy."
That's all we need to hear to know that he understands more than we realize.
