Thank GOD our church has been the opposite. When we were still pregnant with Lauren, after we got her diagnosis, the outpouring of love from our church is indescribable. People couldn't wait to meet her. Our pastor told us he was proud of our decisions.
Fast forward to today. Lauren is practically famous. Nobody is afraid of her. She says hi to everyone she sees and everybody says hi right back! She kissed our pastor twice today! Lauren is a valued member of NorthRidge Church already and people truly care about her and about our family. It is utter and total acceptance.
Words really can't explain what that means to me. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, NorthRidge Church!
