These girls are absolutlely breathtaking! Copeland's tiny hands are so sweet I just want to hold them right now. I am so thinking about you guys and rushed in from church to my computer to check in on you! Be blessed this day knowing God ordained September 23, 2007 as a day for your family to be four together! So amazing what he is doing!! Love you...

Look at the LOVE on Sellers face, how precious is that??!! What a blessing to have this day to treasure and come into being. God is surpassing His own goodness today. And Copelands little finger grip, gives me goose bumps!
How good does this feel to your hearts today? SISTERS, you will treasure this forever. You guys are amazing and so generous to share with us out here. Thank you so much for seeing our prayers answered in these pictures. Prayers continue from California for all of you today.

Love and Gods Blessings on you,
Laurie in Ca.

These pictures are priceless! What a blessing to see Copeland eating from a bottle! PRAISE THE LORD!!! Thank you for sharing these. I hope you have fun on your family outing. I will also be praying for you as you begin to give Copeland breastmilk, that the pumping will go well and you will feel at peace. I will also pray for clarity and discernment through the Holy Spirit.

Boothe, live each day as a gift and you will be fulfilled. The Lord knows what you can handle and you are blessed to be a mother of two girls. They are both beautiful and I can not wait to meet Copeland in person.

In Him,

Boothe,
I absolutely know that you and Conor will get through this time in your life, and be left more whole, more wise and more blessed than ever before. And that is because I know what God we serve and what He can and will do in your lives, now and forever. You two are so strong, and being made sronger every day. There are certain people in my life that are going through really hard things right now and making bad decisons that are affecting the people they love...and the first thing I always think of is "if only they could see Conor and Boothe right now and what they are going through, and how they are handling it." It is the difference of having the Lord and seeking his guidance, and not.

I have shared your story with so many people and so many (especially moms) just can't imagine what they would do, how they would be handling it all. Hands down, it is one of the hardest things I have ever known anyone to go through, and one of the most amazing. I think that you should write a book...even if you simply take the pages from this blog and put them together, it would encourage so many people who are suffering, and doubting. Without a doubt God chose you and Conor and Sellers to be Copeland's family, the people who will love her and hold her and cherish her every second of her life. I think your blog has become my favorite website of all times. I can't get enough of that precious baby..and I know that everytime I check your blog that I will be encouraged, and touched, and changed by what you are sharing with so many. I just love all of you so much!

Boothe,
Thank you for these precious pictures, what a blessing they are and bring such a smile to my face. I will be praying specifically for Copeland's feedings. God not only made her for you... but YOU for HER!! I think it would be so incredibly awesome if you were able to provide her with the milk God has given you to nourish her delicate body. I pray that if you decide to give her your milk that it will comfort her in such a way that any fears or hesitations will be outweighed by an overwelming sense of peace. God has formulated your milk just for her... it all just blows my mind. Our Father's love and care for his children permeates every ounce of our beings.

Boothe, the Lord has used you to reveal so many things to me... I think I need to write a blog entry on what an instrument you have been in so many areas of my life. And to think there are hundreds of people out there who could do the exact same thing. God is so dynamic that he can take such a tragic and devastating situation and use it to bring such glory and honor to His name.

I will praise Him in this storm!

Precious Farley FAMILY,
Your pictures are beautiful! Copeland is such a tiny angel - and Sellers looks like she's just glowing with pride!
I am so thankful that God has given you this wonderful day!
I am praying for your family and marriage today. I pray that God may help you and Conor revel in each others God given gifts as parents - and your unique roles as mom and dad. I pray you may see new wonderful things in each other as husband and wife today too (like seeing your hubby again after you've been away on a long vacation!) I am praying continuously too for your strength, and the strength of Copeland. I have to admit too that I'm praying for your family, myself, and other prayer warriors out here that we all may clearly hear from the Spirit how to best encourage you all, and use our words in love through Christ, and not ever ones from the enemy that may add to any fear or doubt in your heart. I pray that all you hear is God's GRACE and love in your days ahead. You and Conor are amazing, loving, self sacrificing parents - who are walking a path that most of us will never walk. You are walking with such grace and humbleness. I know that is entirely given from God (for His glory!!) Thank you for sharing the depths of your prayer needs and too for sharing your sweet miracle gift of Copeland from our Lord! She continues to amaze me!
We're praying!

Tammy said...

Your daughters are gorgeous! I can't help but cry every time I visit your blog. I continue to pray daily for your family and for God to watch over Copeland and help her. May God Bless each and every one of you. You are so strong that it inspires me.

Jennifer said...

I am beyond words. When I logged on this evening I felt sure I would read a different story as I have not checked on you since Thursday afternoon. Praise the Lord! He indeed works in wonderful and unexpected ways. Enjoy every day that you have with your precious 2 girls!

jtcosby said...

How awesome are those pictures! I love the look on Seller's face! It's precious.

pam said...

The photo with Copeland grasping the finger is amazing and a testimony of this true miracle that God has granted your family. T18 babies are supposed to have clenched fists and look at her! Your two girls are beautiful and give me a happy heart. Love to your whole family...

Emma said...

Lots of Prayer for more time, more memories and more photos - but also for peace and strength and for everything to happen at the right time.

You have such beautiful daughters! God is continuing to use your family to show His love and miraculous ways to so many people. We are praying that you enjoy every minute of your time with Copeland! Enjoy your time out!

Boothe,
We had a friend that had a son, Cale, 3.5years ago that was born with Trisomy 18. He was born 4 weeks before our daughter and went to be with the Lord 2 weeks later.

I just want you to know that I think about you daily after I linked up to you from another friend's blog. You sound heroic and courageous. I pray that your strength will continue to endure and that when it comes time for Copeland to go home to be with our Lord, that she goes peacefully surrounded by all who love her.

Please keep your head up and your prayers going. Please live each day to the fullest with BOTH of your girls. Take lots of pictures and hang them around your house. Continue to worship in the Lord and knowing that you aren't to know his plans yet. Remember Matt 6:34 "Do not be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. .." Keep going and taking your 'foursome' where ever your heart desires. Know that you are loved and prayed for.

All of your pictures that you have posted are precious!
Elizabeth and family in Texas

What PRECIOUS memories you are making! The picture of Sellers and her younger sister is definitely "framing material" for a big sister's bedroom! :-)

I've been following your precious & powerful story through my daughter, and have been praying for you (our church in PA has been too). These 8 Scriptures are for you: Gen.18:14;Jer.32;17-27; Matt.19;26; Mark 9:23; Mark 10:27; Mark 14:36; Luke 1:37; Luke 18:27. May our miracle-working God continue to bless all of you!

I just wanted to let you know that we are praying for your family during this difficult time. Copeland has made an impact on us even out here in Texas. What an amazing, precious, and strong little girl she is.

It is a testament to your faith that you are choosing to remain in HIM, so you will be blessed with the promise that HE will remain in you. Patrice and Cayce have been keeping us in the loop, "family" you may never meet. May God's peace and comfort surround you.
