Hope For Amanda

Living on Faith, Hope & Love

Amanda's Network of Angels

We feel that it is not God's place to cure Amanda, instead he has placed many angels in our lives to help make us stronger and enjoy each day that we have with her. 


During our last EEG (Nov 2006), a special friend wrote the following in a card:

You are the fairest in the land......

You are the fairest in the land......

You are the fairest in the land because God continues to hold you in his hand


We are truly blessed with our child and thank god for helping us through each day.



Our extended family has been tremendous during this journey.  They have been very supportive and generous.  These angels help us be strong during the weak moments.  Everyone is so wonderful with Amanda.  It's amazing to take a step back and see the relationships Amanda has with our family!

Heaven’s Very Special Child


A meeting was held quite far from Earth.  It was time again for another birth.  Said the Angels to the Lord above – “This special child will need much love.  Her progress may be very slow.  Accomplishment she may not show.  And she’ll require extra care from folks she meets down there.  She may not run or laugh or play.  Her thoughts may seem quite far away.  So many times she will be labeled ‘different’, ‘helpless’, and ‘disabled.’ So let’s be careful where she’s sent.  We want her life to be content.  Please, Lord, find the parents who will do a special job for you.  They will not realize right away, the leading role they are asked to play.  But with this child sent from above, comes stronger faith and richer love.  And soon they’ll know the privilege given in caring for their gift from heaven.  Their precious charge, so meek and mild, is heaven’s very special child."
