Grateful to you,
Dear Faithful Friends,
I cannot explain it, though my heart was breaking and in pain, as I sat with Sydney and my family Sunday night I continued to have hope. I wanted with all my heart for Sydney to live and I knew that at any moment if Jesus said to her "Get up and walk," she would. I also knew that if He did not she would be with Him in Heaven, and in a blink of an eye we will be with her. That is Hope.
He ushered her into His arms as the new day was dawning. Her face had been completely restored and she was beautiful. What a gift.
I looked back at my journal on the plane ride home and it was so hard to read and recognize how painfully hard this struggle was. I knew it was hard, but never to the depth that those words showed me. I see now that I didn't see it because Christ was sustaining me each day and Sydney. I don't know how else we could have faced all that we faced. He made Sydney, and He made her just amazing. She faced everything with strength, faith, and courage. She was not fearful. I thank God for truly sustaining her.
Words cannot express my gratitude to all of you. Through this website, mail, calls, prayers and e-mails you have ministered to me through this entire journey. As much as Sydney loved the attention, she did not want to be the center of attention. She wouldn't want to be now. She would ask us all if we know Jesus. I told her from the beginning that she was a little disciple and that 100's of people were seeking the Lord because of her. Christ brought us all together through Sydney and taught us how to pray and seek His face. Please continue to seek.
We love you and have felt so much love from you,
