Saturday AM Update

Emma continues to march on.

People continue to lift us.

God continues to sustain us.

Several posts ago we discussed POINT TWO, and how the last 0.2 miles of a marathon were the hardest, and how it offers the greatest rewards. We easily see how Emma's impact grows exponentially each day her Life Race stretches on. The heavenly gains from Emma's Battle are comforting, but don't equal justification in a parents eyes and heart. And for that, we abandon reason and call upon the LORD to give us faith in our "un-faith". He answers our call.

We love Emma. We thank you for loving her too.



  1. Such a strong will to keep going. You are all in my prayers.

  2. Thank you for sharing Emma's heroic life with us all. My prayers are with you and your family. She is such a strong little girl.

  3. I continue to lift up precious Emma and your family to the Lord and ask that He gives you all supernatural strength and peace. Emma is ever on my heart and mind, and never out of my prayers.

  4. Emma continues to amaze us. Emma is an angel and a warrior all in one. Thank so much for the updates. Gods light is shining an your family. Love, Ms. Suzie

  5. You both know that we are in constant prayer for you and Emma. God's will and our faith in our Lord will suatain you. Both of you and Emma never cease to amaze us. Your faith is a light to all.

  6. Bless your hearts, I can't imagine going through this gate He has asked you to pass through... my heart is still with you, will be always... Please give that sweet girl butterfly kisses for me!

  7. My heart aches for you as a parent and I have a hard time not crying every post I read. Yet on the flip side I am so inspired by your Faith and praise to our Heavenly Father for this journey He has given you. Emma is amazing and she has ran a fantastic race here on earth. It has been a blessing to be able to include her in my prayers! Love, Cindy Wages

  8. Thank you for taking the time to post. We must have pulled up the blog 20 times today. Praying for the Lord to continue to give you strength as your family has been tested to the fullest in your faith. We are praying and cheering Emma on to cross the finish line and begin her new life with a perfect mind and body. Praying here,
    Sharon & Ken

  9. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful daughter. Goes to show you, one person can make a difference(Is making a difference). Emma is changing strangers.

  10. Kalvin and Christy,
    Thankful for God's amazing love and grace and work in the midst of the struggle of Emma's and your lives. Praying for God's grace and strength and wisdom and peace to fill and cover you each moment.
    Love and hugs and prayers,

  11. I'm still expecting a miracle!

  12. I am sorry for your pain and will continue to ask our Father to keep you in his loving embrace, as you travel this difficult journey. May peace be yours.


  13. There are no words to express what I would like to say to you. "The steps of a righteous man are ordered by God". Our Mighty God has entrusted you with such a difficult journey, but He will never leave you nor forsake you. And all things work together for the good to those that love God and are called according to His purpose. And it is obvious that He has a purpose and a plan for your Emma and for your whole family..a plan of hope and to prosper you. The battle is not over. Just as Moses would grow weary in battle and needed help keeping his arms raised, all the outpouring of love that you are receiving are Aaron and Hur keeping your hands up so that Emma can win this battle and you all can proclaim, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." Every breath she takes is a praise offering to God. He has not forgotten her or you. When he knit her together in your womb, he knew her and he knew he could trust you and her to walk this journey together hand in hand. And you will see His kingdom come and His will be done and it will be for His Glory. My prayers are with you.

  14. Dear Dunman Family,
    I have followed Emma's blog for over a year now, and have constantly lifted her and her family up in prayer. I admire all of you so much and your continuous walk with Christ in the midst of such adversity. It has truly been a gift to me and has brought many changes within my spiritual life.I pray for you to have that "peace which passes all understanding" during this difficult time. Love in Christ, Molly Nolen

  15. Emma is in my prayers. You're an amazing family and I'm in awe of your strength.

  16. I can't stop thinking about Emma and your family. I must refresh your page once an hour just to look for updates.

    What an amazing warrier Emma is.

  17. I pray for Emma's cross over the finish line, when she will finally "win" her race and be free. I am continually praying for her and your family. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

  18. Sending a HUGE hug for all of you! May the Lord Jesus give you strength and comfort.
    Still praying,
    The Wheelers
