This is Allison, my niece. She gave birth to her first child Alena at 25 weeks and all of 1 pound.
It wasn’t the plan she had in mind.
Despite the dire situation, Alena has been a fighter from day one and after 5 months in the hospital, is getting ready to go home! Through many long nights and scary moments, Allison, and husband Graham, have moved from ‘their plan’ to ‘God’s plan’ for their family. Not that they haven’t struggled with that transition, but to see their faith and resilience in trusting God day after day and moving from disappointment to feeling secure in knowing that God is in control of the ’plan’, has been faith lifting for those of us who have been watching this unfold.
This is a picture of a woman who has left despair behind and rests in the plan of the Master!
May we all do so well at living in His plan for us!
