When there are no words, pictures tell the story of sweet joy, celebration and love that filled our 10 hours with Sophie as we grew to know and love her even more than we could have ever dreamed possible. Those 10 hours were filled with and surrounded by holy moments, that in the coming days I hope to put into words as we have a chance to process together all that God did that weekend. God truly brought to fruition the passage He led me to months ago as I thought and dreamed of Sophie’s arrival.
“Look among the nations and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told.” – Habakkuk 1:5
We were filled with wonder and astounded by all the Lord did in the 4 days we were in the hospital. His presence filled that place in incredible ways. And though tears flood our eyes now, we love reflecting on the beautiful moments the Lord gave us with our firstborn daughter, Sophia Kyla Dennis.
For those who wonder whether it is truly worth it to carry a child to term who has little chance of survival outside of the womb, it is worth it beyond what words could say.
We are forever grateful to our Videographer, Scott Taylor and Photographer, Amanda Kern from Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and my friend and photographer, Elyse South who documented every detail of Sophie’s precious life. These photos and video have captured the moments we will never forget.
