This was the final song that played at the funeral yesterday. It was sung by the pastor and the church's choir. I have heard this song before but considering the context of the moment, I starting bawling after the second line and couldn't stop until the song finished. We have such great hope and my friend's husband continued to share this hope right up to his last days.
We are a Christian couple joyfully answering God's call on our life to welcome children into our home. We have two boys, Tyler and Tony, and adopted our first daughter, Amanda, in August of 2007 and a second daughter, Christiana, in July of 2009. Talitha joined our family in February 2010 after a surprise pregnancy. Julia was an even bigger surprise in January 2012.
