Prayers for Gentry Rose

Gentry Rose is the precious daughter of a friend who just happens to be the very talented photographer for some of the photographs on Granny B's . My heart is heavy today. She has just been diagnosed with Autism . Her father is a pastor and her mom is the sweetest person you will ever meet. I can no imagine the heartbreak she feels right now. In her words:

The future is unknown for our daughter. Questions every parent of a child with disabilities wonders... Will she have friends? Will she ever be able to have conversations with us about deep subjects as she grows? Will she go to college? Will she get married? Will she live at home for the rest of her life? Can she ever truly understand and express love-love from us, her peers, and even our Heavenly Father? If I allow myself the indulgence of self pity-I could keep going with a much longer list. But what good would that do? What she needs is early intervention-help today-The Lord holds her future in His hands. Our responsibility is to simply trust and obey.
The heart of every parent longs to see their child thrive and be given the opportunities to learn and grow.

Her father's insurance at the church does not cover the cost of her therapy which will be more than $6000 a month. Please visit her blog and read her story. Pray with me for healing and recovery, for strength for her parents to face unsure days ahead. To God be the Glory!
