Awaiting Luke – A very special delivery
Awaiting Luke is a story of hope and of bravery! Bravery of Lianne and Garth who have put their faith in God and accept the path that he has chosen for them. This gorgeous young couple have stepped up and shown such maturity and courage in their decision to love Luke no matter what. At their 20 weeks scan it was discovered that Baby Luke had a congenital diaphragmatic Hernia which is very serious and can be life-threatening. You can read about this condition on the following blog, Cherubs. As anyone of us can imagine, this young couple were devastated at the news but as they already strongly loved Luke …the path going forward was an easy one to make …they would fight for Luke!
After much thought and soul-searching, Lianne & Garth decided to share their news with their family, friends and acquaintances and started a facebook page “Prayers for Baby Luke”. I can imagine that this was not an easy decision to make …but their love for their little boy is what has driven them to do this …because like me, they too believe in the Power of Prayer.
Lianne and Garth also wanted to celebrate Lukes arrival with a maternity shoot. To show that he is eagerly awaited with loads of love and that his life is celebrated. Luke already has amazing parents …he is a lucky young boy. With parents like these …he will come through his trial and tribulations with much strength and be surrounded by a family who absolutely adore him ….and that is all that us, as parents need to be great at ….accept our children for who they are and to love them unconditionally.
Lianne & Garth, I send you all my love as you start your journey to bringing Luke home! May God keep him safe. Amen!
