It's not my story to tell, so I'll let my words be few.
Last year, our good friends -- John's best friend from college, Jamey, and his wife, Kaila, -- excitedly stood in our kitchen as we cooked dinner and shared that they were expecting a baby.
Life, however, didn't go as planned.
We prayed for miracles.
And, though we didn't get the one for which we had hoped, for which we had pleaded, He continues to allow our fingers to unwrap unexpected ones.
This isn't just a story of grief, a story of loss, though both are interwoven into its threads.
But, rather, overarchingly, it's one of hope
and it's one of what God can do with willing hearts and resolves to trust that even when life doesn't make sense to our minds, God can redeem the seemingly senseless.
