Remembering Elliot Skaggs

Tomorrow marks what would have been the 1st birthday of my dear friend Sara's little boy. He was diagnosed with polycystic kidneys in utero.
Sara and her husband navigated the unspeakable journey of her pregnancy with more bravery and faith than can ever be told. She carried him as long as she could when doctors suggested otherwise. She walked with such an astounding measure of grace--she is truly my hero.

She was told that sweet Elliot would live maybe minutes, if at all. He lived for an hour. His short little life spoke volumes about the Lord's sovereignty.

Please remember the Skaggs and McCain family as you call on the Lord this week.

Thank you so much for this very sweet little shout out :) We really had a great day yesterday remembering our Elliot together. We all cried, but we all celebrated, too. Thank you so much for remembering us, and for remembering Elliots birthday, it means so much to me :)
