Gabriel and Musica's Story

"Yesterday at Bane's endocrinologist appointment, I was reminded of one of God's greatest miracles in my life. The doctor asked about Bane's galactosemia, and without any thought I simply stated that he didn't have it anymore. She looked stunned and said, "What do you mean? That doesn't make any sense". That's when I remembered that there is no known cure for galactosemia. It is a genetic disorder that you have to live with for the rest of your life, but there I was...holding my baby boy who didn't have it anymore. Her reaction was similar to the reaction that Bane's geneticists had when they told us that Bane no longer had galactosemia. They had no explanation because they did not understand how it happened, but the answer is simple...GOD. The endocrinologist's disbelief strengthened my faith in God's power and love for his children. God healed Bane, and I will never let myself forget about that blessing again.
And the reason why God healed him... We never prayed and asked for him to be healed. When we first started to attend the Vineyard my husband prayed and asked for a sign. He asked God to let us know if the Vineyard is where we belong and isn't corrupted. A week later we found out that Bane no longer had galactosemia! It was the best response/sign EVER."
