Faith, courage, strength

Last night we attended a benefit event for my girlfriend's little girl. Besides the complications of being born at 21 weeks, she has a series of other diseases that require a lot of medical. The prognosis is not positive. But you would not of guess that when if you heard her speak last night. The room was packed with family and friends raising money for the cause. Along with the tear jerking slide presentation, the outpouring of donations for the silent auction, the laughter of friends, McKenna's Mom said a speech. In this statement of gratitude, she explained how she was blessed to be McKenna's Mom and if God himself came down and said of course I have a healthy baby for you, but I also have a sick baby that needs your love - she would choose McKenna.
The evening was a true inspiration.
