Big Sister

August 16, 2013

Today, thanks to technology, my little girl was able to see her baby brother in “real life” for the very first time with her Nana there. I talked to her briefly to let her know he would look different, but all the tubes were “helpers for his heart.” Because he had the breathing tube in, he was still sedated. We hadn’t seen him open his eyes in 2 days. But as soon as he heard her voice for the first time his eyes opened wide and he looked around, turning towards her. She kept saying, “I’m a big sister!” What an incredible moment.

    Such a wonderful moment……. tears in my eyes.

    Technology has its drawbacks but it’s things like this that make me grateful to live in the times that we do.

    Kaden’s (and) family has been in my prayers and thoughts daily. I was so touched to have read this special moment between sister and brother. Thanking the Lord that he listens to beggars.
