Tonight I write instead of Keith. I have been reading all of the comments left for Keith and our family concerning Danielle. I just wanted to say thanks. It is such a terrible and helpless feeling to watch you child go through something like a seizure and know there is nothing you can do to help.
I don’t understand and I have cried out to God so many times. I know in my heart that God has a plan for Danielle and that hope is what gets me through. I have often wondered how people who don’t know Jesus can deal with all the troubles of this world. I have a wonderful family and awesome friends who listen to me and cry with me, but without God to lean on I don’t think I could deal with it.
Danielle is such an encouragement to me. I believe that having to endure the stress with not only being a teenager but also the seizures has caused her to grow. She is one of the strongest people I know. Even though she questions why, she has never let her seizures interfere with anything she wants to do. Knowing there are people in so many places praying for her, I know without a doubt that God will take care of her.
My prayer is that someday God will take the seizures away, but if He doesn’t I know He has a great plan for her life. Thanks again to all of you. May God bless you all. —Ellen
