I was initially hesitant to start a blog about Carter and our family's journey. I didn't want to commercialize on our pain or dishonor Carter's life in some way by being just another blog out there. However, after some encouragement from family, as well as the realization of how hard it can be sometimes to retell things over and over, I gave in.
We are overwhelmed by the number of people who care about Carter and our family. Overwhelmed in a good way, I might add. The least we can do is keep people up to date on what's going on, how God is working, and how others can be praying. Plus, I don't want people to miss out on the current joys we experience as Carter is still quite living and active inside me (Sarah).
As difficult as this is and will continue to be, we also have to draw attention to God's faithfulness. Carter is so clearly God's child. And as much pain as it causes us to give him up, the grace, strength, and love we have experienced so far has been more than we ever expected of God. It really is bittersweet to feel such pain on one hand and such love from Another.
God is good, all the time.
