During my first trimester of pregnancy, I gave each of my babies a nickname – a name only I would ever use and tuck in my heart for my little ones.
For Emily, as I pondered and prayed about this nickname, “Little Star” came to mind over-and-over. Little Star!
At the time of giving her this name, I was unaware of the intense journey we would be on with a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome and a Heart Defect (unbalanced complete AVSD). I received our prenatal diagnosis at twenty weeks and my world seemed to turn upside-down. Here began a real faith-pressing journey.
One evening while writing in my journal, I felt a whisper in my heart, a reminder of the nickname I had given her (Little Star) -- “Your baby will rise like the star over Bethlehem, she will shine bright, and lead people to Jesus.” The words spoke life, and in this moment, I knew she would rise and be a bright shining light in our world.
In her first year, Emily required Open Heart Surgery and she hit every complication you could imagine. A week after her first heart surgery, she would require a second surgery. She has fought hard and is strong, through it all she has reminded me that even in the darkest seasons of life we have something to Twinkle and Shine about.
The “Emmy Necklace” tells a story of a life that will shine bright -- a gold-filled pendent with a star. Emmy has a heart of gold and is my Little Starshine.
P.S. – the name “Emmy” was given by her brother who was unable to pronounce ‘Emily’ when she was first brought home from the hospital, he called her ‘Emmy.’
