I was so impressed with this sweet testimony of friends Kacie and Jonathan Hunt that I asked permission to share Kacie’s blog as a guest post today. Are our children really ours? Kacie shares a powerful answer to that question as she allows you to see a glimpse of the difficult journey involving trisomy that she and Jonathan went through. I think you’ll be inspired and encouraged by their authentic faith.
I used to joke around with my grandchildren making unbelievable statements. One of my them loved to say, “Uh-uh! For reals, Mimi?”‘ “Just kidding!” I’d reply. There are some things they never question with, “For reals?” Words like, “I love you! You’re so special! I’m really proud of you!” I hope they know Mimi never kids about those things. They are definitely “for reals.”
I never intended for it to be a cover-up. It was only an innocent mistake. Several years ago I returned to my roots–in more ways than one. Yes, I’m back to brunette again.
