Amazing!


I talked with a mom today who is expecting her little guy in 10 weeks. He has Spina Bifida just like Christopher. She lives in Texas which is the crazy thing, how did I get in touch with her? Well here is the interesting story, and you tell me if this is just a random coinsidence or if Heavenly Father maybe had something to do with this.
About 2 weeks ago My friend Lynette called me and said that she just got off the phone with her mother- in- law Diane, and was wondering if I might be willing to talk with a mom in her ward that is expecting a child with Spina Bifida. ( I hope this all makes sense)? Of course I said I would love too, Lynette said "I already told her you would be happy too). She knows me pretty well. So Lynette gave her Mother-in-law my blog, and email and everything else so she could learn about our experience so far with Christopher. At that point I was really looking forward to talking with this mom, because Of course I totally know what she is going through. But, I also knew that she might be so overwhelmed with things that she might not be ready to talk to me. I know I was that way.
Then, Lynette got an e-mail from her m-i-l and said that another person in her same ward talked to this very same mom about us! (what?)! that is way to crazy!!! Ok, I hope you are still following me :] . This other other lady is Bitsy Speirs, I knew her In California. She was in the Stake young womens Presidency when I was in YW's. She was Awesome. all the girls loved her. Anyways, they moved to Texas, which is where Robert, my husband served his mission. He served in their ward, they took him and his comp in and took great care of them while they were there. Rob and I never knew eachother until after he returned from his mission, so it was neat that we both knew Bitsy. Anyways, after his mission Rob's parents have been keeping in touch with the speirs, and so That is how Bitsy knows about Christopher. ( I told you this was crazy)! So, Bitsy gives her all the same info that Lynette's m.i.l. gave her. ( the mom's name is Adrienne by the way :} ).
It blew my mind that This Mom that I never had any idea about was aproached by two different people to contact me. Do you think we were soposed to connect for some reason? I do. Like my sister said, It doesen't matter how big this world is, Heavenly father knows how to take care of each and everyone one of us, he knows what we need when we need it. We can all be instraments in the lord's hands to help him take care of his children, just like Bitsy and Diane did. Hopefully Adrienne and I will be able to help each other out with all our new expierences, and challenges that come our way as mothers of these fabulous little boys.

How cool is that? So NOT a coincidence! YOU, Becky Etchells, are an answer to someone's prayer.

Awww. Becky, you brought tears to my eyes! Christopher is so blessed to have you for his mother. I admire you for so many reasons and think that every person that comes into contact with you and your sweet family can feel of your love for Christopher. It's wonderful that you are able to help and encourage others who are in the same situation as you. I sometimes marvel at how Heavenly Father's children's lives are intertwined, much to our surprise sometimes!

Love, Susanna

P.S. Can't wait to see you guys and see my adorable niece and nephews!
