Over the last month my life has changed rather significantly. On April 22, 2011, Good Friday, we welcomed Tinsley Jeremiah Gardner to the world. It was quite a dramatic entrance as nearly 18 hours before his birth we were informed that he may not survive. Our Sovereign Lord found it fitting that he should live.
Little Tinsley was diagnosed with achondroplasia, which in layman’s terms means he is perfectly normal, except that as an adult he will be no taller than a second grader. The organization Little People of America (LPA) has already been amazingly helpful and supportive as have all our friends and family with visits, meals, and most importantly prayers.
