It is the night before our daughter’s arrival. And if there is anything that I have learned in these 40 days in the lonely places, journeying with men and women of the Bible to the places of darkness where they too found themselves in desperation before their God, it is that it drew their hearts to worship. There is something about discovering the Lord in the deep places of grief, loneliness, heartache that drives your heart to a greater sense of His worthiness of our praise and worship. I see it as I read Psalm 139… a constant declaration of praise to the one who has fashioned and knitted us together in our mother’s womb. Isaiah 25, where I was today, where Sophie’s footprint sits and the declaration of the day when God will wipe away every tear from all faces is written, followed by a declaration from the people that it will be said on that day “Behold, this is our God. We waited for him, that he might save us. This is the Lord, we waited for him. LET US BE GLAD AND REJOICE IN HIS SALVATION.”
“O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things; plans formed of old, faithful and sure.” – Isaiah 25:1
So, tonight in the midst of fears, emotions and hopes for tomorrow we gathered with our friends and family to worship. To spend time as a family worshiping the one who is worthy of praise. We worshiped in song and we worshiped in prayer. It was an evening to meet the Lord with our community, in our sorrow and in our hope. I can think of no better way to spend the last night that we may have with our little girl, then in praise to the one that she may soon meet. Oh, how we pray that she would meet him face to face much, much later in life. But whether God heals our little girl tomorrow this side of heaven or the other…. we will still worship his holy name. For he is worthy of worship simply because of who he is.
We look forward to letting you in in the coming days to what God does as Dasah makes her grand entrance into the world. Please be praying for our family, both Kevin, myself and Dasah along with our extended family and friends who are walking this journey closely with us. And be praying for the next season of our story with Dasah that God will ask us to step into.

My prayers are with you. May God shower your family with peace as you embark on the next road of your journey.
Praying for you and your family. May God be glorified through Dasah’s birth and life. Praying for safety for you as you have your csection and for the healing of you c-section.
You are so blessed with all the friends and family around you, loving you! It is such a beautiful thing it brings me to tears. Many go through this entire life without that kind of blessing. God has been so good to you to surround you with such love and support! As I cry with you over this season (even though I don’t even know you), I rejoice in a God that loves you and your girls so much! Praying for a blessed day tomorrow!

Praying for you and your family.
Saying a prayer for you guys tonight. I LOVE hearing your story, but please also feel the freedom to grieve and take your time in updating us all =)
Oh, Lindsey. Your love and trust and faith in the Lord during this time stirs me to trust Him more.
I am praying for you and Dasah’s entrance into the world and for healing: Dasah’s and yours after the c-section.
Love and blessing and grace upon grace be showered upon you, Dasah, Kevin and family. <3 Krista Nuñez
So many prayers going to the Heavens as our thoughts are with you and the miracles of birth and all that God will place before you as you meet your precious daughter, Dasah. May God lay His mighty hands upon Dasah and give you time to know each other as He is there with you all….holding you in our hearts…..
Your will be done Father God! We believe and trust in You!
Praying so hard for you right now.
Praying for you Lindsey and Kevin. Thank you for sharing this journey. It has inspired so many people.
My friend linked this on Facebook. It is difficult to read having just lost our little granddaughter, knowing before her birth we would lose her and heaven would gain her. Our little Abigail reached and touched hearts across the country in her six days on this side of heaven. http://blog.hummiesworld.com/2014/11/yesterday.html
I am praying for you and your family. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
Praying for all of you. And worshiping with you!
God be with you and your families.
Hugs and prayers. My heart aches for you. May this day of Dasah’s birth be filled with glorious peace and beauty – no matter what.

Praying for all of you (from Texas)
What a blessing your daughters are to so many! I will be praying for Dasah as I continue to pray for Sophie and the work that each of them are called to to bring about the glory of God’s Kingdom and never ending love here on Earth. May you and your family receive an abundance of His love today as you walk this path of faith and trust in Him.
God be with you
Offering my day as prayer for you guys today!
Praying for Dasah, you and your family. May the Lord’s comfort and power draw us all to marvel at Him.
Praying for you during this time. May The Lord sustain you with His mighty arms. Love Lynn and Brad Jankowski
Your story has been a light and inspiration to me to continue loving Jesus when dreams are shattered and things don’t go as planned. Thank you for your faithfulness. The Dennis family is in my thoughts and prayers all throughout the whole day. Praying Gods gracious hand to be firmly sustaining you today, and the coming days.
Praying for you, Kevin, and precious Dasah! I have been following your journey since the mid-point of your pregnancy with Sophie, the strength, courage, and faith you walk in is awe-inspiring. Praying for miraculous healing for Dasah and that you, Kevin. That all your family and friends find peace and comfort going throughout this day and for the days, weeks, months, and years to come!
We stand in agreement with your family!
Continued prayers for Dasah and your family. Our God is a miraculous God and we continue to pray fervently. Your glory to God has been extraordinary and no one can not see Him through your story. What a blessing your family is to so many. Praising and praying.
