June 2009 - September 30, 2009
In DRC, the life of an infant is hard. If they live to their first birthday you might call it a miracle. Our little Cassie is one of so many who did not make it. We received word last night that Cassie had died, a victim to Malaria. We are devastated and feel her loss as if she had been with us from day one. We are heartbroken. We were in court proceedings in DRC-we were almost finished, we were so close. But it was not to be. It was not God's Will this time. His plans are so much bigger than ours, there is no understanding it at this point in our lives. What I do know is that Cassie is in His loving arms now. She is no longer in pain. We will get through this because of His Grace and His Love and His Strength. We are so grateful and thankful that we received Cassie's referral, that we received her pictures. She did not die a statistic, she died with a family loving her, praying for her, wanting her. She died with a name-Cassie Jamila Solberg. Just maybe, that was God's Plan.
We love you always sweet baby girl, our daughter, our Cassie.
