If there's one thing we are certain about Faith it is that she looooves music. She has a little cd player in her room that plays lullabies almost 24-7. Her favorite (yes, she has a favorite- she's a picky one!) has the song Kumbiya.
I remember singing that song as a girl scout. At the time I thought the song was silly, the words:"someones crying my Lord, Thank you God?" What in the world did that mean? As I rocked Faith to those words today, I finally realized what the song meant. In three days we will no longer be able to hear Faith cry (until her trach comes out which the ENT said will be at least a year because they don't take trachs out in the winter).
Faith has given us such a special gift; to appreciate life- every little bit of it- even the crying. I know many people have questioned why God has not healed her- he could have certainly healed her airway by now. But if we had not gone through what we have- we would not be who we are today. Today we are stronger, have MORE Faith than we ever thought possible, and can truly say we appreciate every rain drop that falls from the sky. We don't understand why Faith has had to endure what she has- but we know there is a perfect plan for her life- she has already changed so many peoples hearts and she is only 5 months old! To that we say; Kumbiya
