Happy 1st Birthday My Son

As we visit your resting place, upon this special day.
Once more I feel the tears of sadness that will never go away.
For, ever since you’ve been gone, life has never been the same.
It comforts me to know that one day we will meet again.
Until that day arrives, I will relive every memory of the times we shared together – Daddy, Mommy, Amelli & Luke; memories of a lifetime.
We miss you very much and words never could convey the extent of the joy that you brought us everyday; before you left to be with Jesus.
We wish you peace, and joy and love, to celebrate your day above.IMG_2619 IMG_2624 IMG_2628 IMG_3102
Happy 1st Birthday in Heaven ~ Love Daddy, Mommy & Amelli

My Loving Son Who Waits For Me

DSC_8944

My dearest son, Luke

 

I tried so hard today,

And I know you’d be proud

The sun was shining upon my face

And yet there wasn’t a cloud

 

I am grateful for the time we had

And cherish the love we share

God has the perfect plan

To show us how much he cares

 

My heart remains heavy

With my arms very empty

For this was His plan

For I will never understand

 

I know you’re in God’s care

And I will someday join you there

I close my eyes and I surly see

My loving son who waits for me.

Love Momma Bear<3

Celebration of Eternal Life!

DSC_9988Luke Samuel Golnik, our miracle, entered this world surrounded by many prayers and much love at 3:22pm on March 25, 2015, weighing 4lbs 12oz.
After 7 days our little angel was called to the Lord at Canuck Place in Vancouver, B.C. on April 1, 2015 at 3:55pm. After struggling with Trisomy 18, he gently was welcomed into the arms of Jesus.

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” And he worshiped the Lord there. ~ 1 Samuel 1:27-28

On March 25th, 2015 a very special miracle happened!

Mom, Dad & Amelli open their loving arms to welcome and comfort the newest addition, Luke Samuel Golnik. He was born at 3:22pm, weighing 4lbs 12oz.

God answered prayer! Praise The Lord!

We give thanks with a grateful heart. ~ Psalm 103:2

God Is Bigger!

God Is Bigger Than Trisomy 18

We finally have a place to give birth to our son.
As of Tuesday morning at 8:30am we had no idea should we go into labor where we were giving birth.
Many doctors were uncomfortable with our son being born in their hospital because of his heart defect. Or perhaps it is because he has Trisomy 18?
Our son is not a diagnosis! Our son is compatible with life! Our son deserves a chance!
I will shout this from the rooftops if I need to!!!!!
I am very thankful that the almighty God knows everything!
Sometimes in life we just don’t understand, and we were not meant to understand.
Well this week we had experienced this first hand.
God is bigger than any obstacle you are facing. He is bigger than any odds you are up against. In fact, God is bigger than ANYTHING you will ever run into.
Praise the Lord.
Our due date is March 24th.
Our induction has been re-set to March 25th
With our love, Thank you for your prayers.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

His Plan Prevails!

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. ~Proverbs 16:9
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. ~Proverbs 16:9

Thank you for your continuous prayers.
We as a family want everyone to know that God is continuing to provide for us.
Today we received a telephone call; the induction has been cancelled for March 18th (tomorrow)!
Sometimes we don’t understand why; however, because this is God’s plan, we as a family understand that this decision has happened for a reason.
Praise the Lord for His faithful direction.
We would like to ask that you could please continue to pray for our family as we continue to travel through this Journey of Hope.
God Bless

So Thankful!

Isaiah 46

To our precious son, Luke. There is so much love that surrounds you. We know The Lord is providing you the strength and comfort that you need, just as He is doing for mommy and daddy.
Tante Maggie and Family dropped off a beautiful gift for a very special Luke. Thank you to your family for your prayers, thoughts and this beautiful gift.
Luke, may God continue to provide you strength to fight and comfort your every need. We continue to hope in the Lord and thank Him for all He provides.

Standing On The Promises of God

I woke up today with the song, “Standing on the Promises of God” playing over and over and over in my mind. The best was yet to come…..I opened God’s word this morning (see below) and, wow! When The Lord wants you to clearly understand what HE wants for YOU, He PROVIDES! There is no coincidence, ever! It is how He speaks to Us. I am very grateful to have a loving Father that I can surrender ALL and He faithfully provides!

Gods Promises

Loving Friends Spending Time Together

Everyone, please meet the beautiful princess, Kaela.
She is perfect in every way! She was born with Trisomy 18 and the same heart condition that our son has.
We are very thankful that The Lord has helped direct our paths to meeting one another. What a blessing this family has been to us!
Thank you for your amazing support. We love you! Hugs!
God is good all the time. All the time, God is good!
