All of us hope that there is a magnificent purpose for our lives, that there is meaning in our existence.
We all want to have an impact on the world and we spend our lives working toward that goal in one way or another, in ways big and small.
As parents, we want our children to change the world, to make a tremendous impact on everyone they encounter. We want them to live fulfilling lives that are meaningful.
As Christian parents, we want our children to know and love God and to tell others about His goodness, His love, His sacrifice for us so that we can live with Him in Heaven forever. We want them to experience His love, peace, grace, and mercy, and then show others the same.
As we ponder why God has allowed Tori to have Krabbe, it has become apparent to us that Tori has already made such an impact during her short time on this earth thus far and she hasn’t even tried to do so.
She has changed perspectives – and even hearts and lives – just by existing. By being such a courageous warrior.
She has changed us in numerous ways, and she has saved the lives of her future siblings (and possibly strangers) in a courageous way. 💙
What more could a parent ask for in the life of their child?
If God chooses to heal her here on earth, what a testimony she – and we – will have! God’s power and mercy will be evident to all and lives will be changed.
But, if God chooses to heal her in Heaven, we will still have a strong testimony of His grace, His love, His peace, His goodness…because we know that He is the only one who can help us get through any of this.
Victoria Ruth Brackbill is a world changer, and we can’t wait to see how God will continue to use our precious baby, even if it isn’t the way we want her story to be written.
