Just a few more



Day two: Copeland's fighting today. Every once and a while she just rests in this position and looks up at her mom and dad.



Mom, aunt chelsea and copeland




Copeland, like Sellers, loves having her daddy rock her. There's no safer place than in the arms of her parents.

What beautiful pictures, they tell such a story of miracles. She is perfect, what a treasure to share Gods most precious wonder with us. Sellers in such a beautiful big sister, pride all over her sweet face. Beautiful grandmas and handsome grandpas, such joy and pride in each picture, thank you Lord. And of course the two of you, it melts my heart. Joy is all over the place as you share this little miracle. May God bless this precious time you share all together, Copelands family. How blessed for her to be surrounded by so much love!! And what a privelege to see who has been capturing the prayers of thousands, waiting for her arrival. You have been faithful to God, and He has been faithful to you with her life. Praying without ceasing for you dear Boothe,Conor,Sellers and family. God hold you all close and bless you big.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

Boothe, you probably don't remember me. I sat by you at a leadership training thing at FBC one day and we talked. I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how hard I have been praying for you. For some reason, I have been begging God to heal Copeland. I believe he will answer these prayers. I am 8 months pregnant and cannot imagine what you are going through. Please know that we love you through the Lord and will continue to pray often for your family. Copeland is absolutely beautiful. Congratulations on a precious baby girl!!

What a strange humanity we are in this world, that we can see a new life that might possibly span 50 or 100 years as a miracle, but when one might only live a fraction of that, we are tempted to view that life as a tragedy - when in the eyes of God both are just a blink, and a thousand years but a day to Him. Before we know it we who are His will be together and whole for eternity,
every tear wiped away. May you continue to find joy and beauty and His eternal promises in every moment He gives you. I'm glad you can see, even through tears, that you are blessed.

Dee Dee in NC said...

I hope my previous comment made sense. You already see the miracle and choose to taste the joy; some, in your shoes, might not. Bless you for being open,and for praising God, in the midst of your pain.

Conor & Boothe,
I, like many others, found your blog thru a prayer request at our church (Central CofC-ama, tx)I grew up going to church with your grandparents, Everett & Peggy Blanton, and there are very few people on this earth that I revere more than those two. I have been keeping up with you via your blog the last few weeks and I have to say that your faith is awe-inspiring to me. I have prayed for you since I found out about Copeland, as I continue to do. She is a precious gift of God. I have this overwhelming urge to kiss her little head!! But I know there is no shortage of kisses for Copeland!
Still praying...Susan P.-Ama. TX

Boothe, Conor, Sellers and Copeland Fair - I am a friend of Katie and Dan's and I too, like so many, have been praying for your family, for a miracle and for God's perfect plan. You have touched me and led me closer to the Lord with your words of faith and submission. I want you to know that. I work raising funds for a NICU and these nurses can truly be angels on Earth. May God Bless you and keep you.

Thank you for sharing the photos of baby Copeland. It is wonderful to see the little girl for whom we have prayed so fervently. Please know that the prayers will not cease. Each day my heart is filled with thoughts of you, Conor, Sellers and precious Copeland. It brought tears to my eyes to see Sellers as a proud big sister. God has truly blessed her with the opportunity to show her love to her baby sister. I know that each moment you have with Copeland is a blessing. I know each person who checks your blogs is honored that you take even a moment to give us a glimpse of your precious new daughter and to allow us to know the best ways we can be praying for your family.

Copeland is an amazing little girl!
