I Still Would Have Chosen You

Last week was the hardest of my life with Sweet Baby. Last week he had his first seizure and continued for the rest of the week. They have him on anti-seizure meds that have helped so far. We are on day 4 seizure free! Praise God. I found this beautiful poem that I cried when I read it. It’s so beautiful and true. It’s also a great reminder. I would never trade Sweet Baby for anything. He is my world. He has given my life a purpose I never thought it would have. I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, “Because of you I didn’t give up.” Of course it was only by the strength of Christ that I haven’t given up. And I never will give up on my Sweet Baby.

I Still Would Have Chosen You 
 
If before you were born, I could have gone to heaven and saw all the beautiful souls, I still would have chosen you.
If God had told me, “This soul would one day need extra care and needs” , I still would have chosen you.
If He had told me, “This soul may make your heart bleed” , I still would have chosen you.
If He had told me, “This soul would make you question the depth of your faith” , I still would have chosen you.
If He had told me, “This soul would make tears flow from your eyes that could fill a river” , I still would have chosen you.
If He had told me, “This soul may one day make you witness overbearing suffering” I still would have chosen you.
If He told me, “All that you know to be normal would drastically change” , I still would have chosen you.
Of course, even though I would have chosen you, I know it was God who chose me for you.
