For a Welcome Report

I cried out to you, Lord. I called to you for help, and you answered me.

Thank you for last Friday's news that the child my daughter carries does not have cystic fibrosis. Thank you for the relief we all feel, the gratitude, and the hope of a lighter load and more manageable future for our family.

Thank you that this child's infancy will not be as replete with doctor and hospital visits, measurements and adjustments, medicines and treatments as her older siblings'. Thank you that this baby girl's challenges and frustrations will not include the issues occasioned by CF.

Make her like a tree on a riverbank, with deep, deep roots and strong branches, green leaves and abundant fruit. Let her life make this family and this world a better place, in Jesus' name, amen.
