Tonight, my heart is breaking for another family who has lost their child. Will you please keep the Holtrop family in your thoughts and prayers? Little Esther was such a fighter and overcame so much, more than they ever thought she would. The doctors told her family that she would not survive birth, but God allowed her 20 days on this earth to spend with her family. Her little body has been healed and made whole and she too is resting in the arms of Jesus. Their faith throughout Esther's journey has been truly amazing. I am so thankful for their hope in the Lord and in seeing Esther again someday, I hope it can be a comfort for them. Esther touched a lot of people in her short life here on earth.

If you have a moment, please visit their blog and let them know you are praying for them in this incredibly difficult time.

Give your kids an extra hug tonight and remember what a blessing they are.


  1. Saying a prayer, giving lots of hugs and going to visit!

  2. Thank you for your support in this time!!! Its not easy going through what we have gone through. Our stories the Lord has picked for our lives are so unique. May we all grieve the losses of our baby and continue to cling closer to the father than ever before. My heart hurts for anyone that has ever gone through this. Its still such a crazy feeling to go through. To remind yourself that you had a baby and then lost a baby. So thankful we have the Lord to cling to in these times!!! Rhonda
