    Dear Randi,

    I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve tried to leave you alone, knowing that you knew we were all on our faces before God. I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of you, and how you’ve shown your faith, strength, vulnerability, fear, love, and an overwhelming amount of grace. Craig and I have been humbled, encouraged and blessed by your words and honesty. God truly does have His hand upon you and Graham. I wish there was more I could say or do to help you through this…but please know how much we love you, and believe with you for a miracle in all of this. Please kiss Graham for me, and tell him how much Uncle Craig and Aunt Roti love him. All our love to you sweet girl…now and forever. Roti

    What a heart wrenching story. Such a beautiful couple, and so much love for the Lord. You will be in my prayers, and I will pass this on to others. DON’T lose your faith! God will see you through.
    Love and a hug, and many prayers, Pat B., Lewis, NY

    Randi, I just want you to know that my husband and I and half a dozen of our praying friends are keeping you and Graham before God’s throne daily and sometimes even hourly. He is a mighty God and we are believing with you that God will knit Graham’s brain back together just as surely and perfectly as He did the first time before Graham was even born. And we know that He will carry you and the children through this horrific time as only He can do. We will not stop praying until Graham is healed.

    We here at Hagerstown Bible Church are praying daily for you all. tonight we prayed at church, and it will continue until God sees otherwise. I have covered you with the shadow of My hand. Isaiah. 51:16. So many are coming right along side of you, and lifting you to the throne of God………..the heavens are alive with the sounds of the saints praying for you. What a sound, what a song, and our God cares. Loving you in prayer, Anne Cox

I just want you to know that my family and I will be praying everytime we think about your situation.I truly am believing for a miracle and know that God can heal Graham and also give you the peace that passes all understanding. Please keep us posted when you are able. May God bless you and all your family at your time of need.

    Randi.. be strong, have faith, remember love. All are easy to say — its the actual putting these gifts (that we have as believers in Christ) to the test that is the battle. When I think about you guys and just see the pain one accident has caused in your life I begin to pray for all the women and men who have been wounded at war. How there are stories like this everywhere and how we are so fragile as humans. I pray for Peace for us all everyday.

    This holiday, just remember, fewer is better and you guys have the best gift ever…time with DADDY. I hope this is your best Christmas to date..

    BTW — Happy Thanksgiving. We have so many answered prayers to be thankful for

    Dear Randi: The six month marker is coming up! How exciting and meaningful. God continues to provide beyond what anyone expected six months ago. I am sure that next July, when you look back over the last six months you will find more miracles as God continues to shape and mold Graham and you for his Glory.
    Cannot wait to read your book.
    God bless you
