If you were a daddy

will-c-head-in-hands

If you were a daddy, and had a sweet little girl like Evelyn, I bet you’d feel the same way.

You’d call her the “light of your life.” You’d love her more than life itself.

And you’d wonder why Evelyn – why did it have to be her? – was so broken.

Her feet are backwards and upside down. You’d get little “shoes” for her, cobbled out of old tire rubber, because she has to walk on the tops of her feet.

You might think that Evelyn, the most precious thing in your life, was broken because God was disappointed in you.

If you were a daddy, and little Evelyn was the light of your life, and someone told you a CURE mobile clinic was in your neighborhood, you might take off running, out of desperate hope. Could this be…?

And, after The Miracle, after CURE doctors had turned your baby’s feet around, and you saw her running and playing and skipping with friends, you might stop, take it in, and cry tears of joy, too.

Evelyn’s daddy is named Willy. He says when he sees CURE, he sees “the light of healing,” and now he sees that light radiating through his sweet little girl.

If you were Willy, you’d likely not know who Jessica was, or Andrew, or Jenny. You may not understand that they went to cure.org and gave to help cover the cost of your miracle.

But if you were a daddy, like Willy, you’d see your daughter’s feet, the light in her eyes, and you’d know God didn’t punish you.

You’d know your own Daddy loves you.
