As of my last update from the family, little Leilah was 15 HOURS old! Genuinely, every breath is a miracle from God. To top that off, the little Facebook page I created (Prayers for Leilah Jubilee Rodrigues) to help get the word out & keep people in the know during the prayer & fasting times as well as the birth, has now reached over 1000 LIKES and over 15,000 reaches (meaning people in the Facebook world who have seen one of the pictures/stories/posts, etc). Most of these people have never heard of Aubrey or Nick before this and for sure don't know them personally. But still, little Leilah's life has touched so many!!!
The faith, courage and endurance that her parents have shown in this difficult time has been life-giving and transformational for so many around the world! (Seriously, read Aubrey's blog about her struggles & how she has overcome so much just for this day). So, in the grand scheme of things, my little problems are definitely not too much for such a BIG God. I mean look at what He's done everywhere else. I am challenged to have faith that God will be with us in whatever we have to handle, in wherever He is leading us and asking us to endure. What has God been challenging you with lately? I'd love to hear about it.
Below are a few pics of me with Nick & Aubrey and our roommate, Adrienne.
