Seven years ago today, Nicolas gifted Emilie with a second chance of life which also means that Emilie has been in remission for seven years. Every year on Valentine's Day, or Transplant Day as we like to call it, I just want to thank God for giving us Nicolas and for extending Emilie's life.   God's favor and mercy is something that I still can not wrap my head around.  What an amazing gift, orchestrated beautifully by Him so that we could continue on as a family of five.  I reflect daily on this gift and am so, so very grateful!

Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope! Romans 15:13 (Msg)

These Two!

One thousand, four hundred and sixty days ago, Emilie received the best gift ever...a gift that gave her a shot at life...a bag of bone marrow from Nicolas (story HERE).  Not only do they have the same cells, but they also have such a sweet relationship. We are so grateful for the love and friendship that these two share and for the grace and mercy that God continues to show us!

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters.
Hebrews 13:1
