Today is the tenth anniversary of the birth of Therese Joy, the first child of my dear friend and fellow blogger, Kellie.
Therese was born with anencephaly and quietly passed away during delivery on that cold November night back in 2002 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I was there with a multitude of friends. We knew Therese was coming and we knew she would only be here on earth for a short while.
What a witness little Therese was to all of us. I am thankful today for her life. I celebrate the sweet angel who looks down on us from heaven.
I can’t wait to meet you someday, little Therese. Through your life and your parents’ love, you’ve already taught me so much.
