We have listened to the station for about 12 years now (since we moved to Wisconsin). In 2012 our 3rd child was born. At 3 months old we ended up in the ER at the Children’s Hospital. We would learn to call it 2nd home. After a long initial stay and countless ones to follow, we learned our precious little girl had a rare genetic disorder. Only 1 of 16 on the planet. Our storm had begun. Many unanswered questions, and unknowns. I cannot tell you how the station has kept us close to God. Our daughter was a fighter! So we would blast Mandisa to remind us we are stronger then our circumstance. The moments in between the storm are countless – the ways the station has help us refocus, praise him when there are no answers. Many tired nights driving home late into the night to be home in the morning for our other kids wondering how the night was going to go. Thank you for tey one song I have heard 1000 times but at 1am has new meaning and kept me awake so I could get home safely. Our beautiful girl went Home this past summer (2017) . Her sickness took her away. And we miss her everyday. We played “Home” by Chris Tomlin at her funeral. So when you play it we are reminded of her. Sometimes we cry, sometimes we turn it up and sing it really loud because she is finally healed. She would have been 6 this last Feb. We were blessed with 5.5 years with her. Her perceived time was unknown. But doctors didn’t think it was anywhere near 5.5. So that is a miracle in it self .
I feel like I am rambling. I have wanted to write for sometime but couldn’t seem to type the words. I would like to say the Play-doh drive deeply touched my heart. There were tears! The Children’s Hospital truly is our 2nd family and we do miss them!
Thank you for all you do. The station really does help us everyday!
In the midst of seasons of serious uncertainty, remember that God is writing a bigger story than we can see.
