Wonderfully Made Link-Up

"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." Psalm 139:13-14.

A friend of mine suggested the name "Wonderfully Made" for my Monday link-up and I thought it was just perfect.  I know when we found out that it was a possibility that Isaac had some problems I clung to this verse.  Remembering that the Lord knit every part of him together inside of me brought me so much peace.  I will never claim that my heart wasn't broken or that this path has been easy.  I will, though always claim that Isaac was a precious and perfect gift from above.  He was fearfully and wonderfully made by our Lord and Savior.  What an amazing thought is that?

Before Isaac was born I was so worried about what people would think and say about Isaac's cleft lip.  Some hurtful things were said, but for the most part people told me he was beautiful (which I already knew:)).  Some of you may have seen this story in the news the last few days.  When I read about this family yesterday I was overwhelmed with emotions.  I was angry at how mean people can be.  I was heartbroken for this precious family that had been unnecessarily hurt in the middle of their grief.  I was proud.  Proud of this mommy for standing up for her precious baby.  She so boldly proclaims that her child is knit together perfectly by God.  You can read more of their story here.  

If you've ever been told that your baby wouldn't live for long or would have serious health problems this link up is for you.  Whether you are currently facing this diagnosis or went through this many years ago I would love to hear your story.  I believe we can all help each other remember that each one of these precious children are "Wonderfully Made".
