BRIAN—Hi, Sean. I read your story yesterday about miracles and it really hit a nerve…
I wanted to share one of my own miracles with you from when I was 23 years old and my wife gave birth, she died after delivery from sepsis and I was sure my life was over.
I thought about putting my daughter up for adoption because I didn’t think I was man enough to raise her alone and I wanted her to have the best life she could ever have, even if it wasn’t with me.
Holding my daughter on that first night I felt an overwhelming peace that it would all be okay and I should raise my daughter, knowing that I would have lots of help from above. My daughter is fifty-eight now. Thank you.
CHERYL— My miracle was when mom had cancer after she retired. They all told her there was nothing they could do.
My mother lived until age ninety-two.
BENJAMIN—I was in a car accident when I was coming home from work and
I rear ended a logging truck. I probably should have died, but I am alive because of a man who was passing by me and pulled me from my car.
DOROTHY—When [my sister and I] were girls our dad and mom were going to get divorced and me and my sister were living in fear… Because my mom wasn’t a stable person and we also knew my dad was going to leave us.
My aunt showed up that night unexpectedly to take us to come live with her in Arizona. My mom ended up in an institution for people dealing with mental issues and my dad totally disappeared.
My aunt said that it was a dream that woke her up and told her to drive those six hours to come get us and raise us.
GRACE—I’m not ready to share what happened to me yet, but…
