When I heard about Alaina’s medical problems, I knew how difficult the journey had just become. For years she struggled to make sense of her constant sickness. Finally, an answer came. She was diagnosed, but it meant that she would need a new kidney to lead any semblance of a normal life. Treatment began, medicine was prescribed, and the search for a donor was underway. Little did anyone know, that man of her dreams would embody the sacrificial love of her Savior.
Justin gave to his wife in actuality what most men only give in theory. Justin gave of himself. He was a match to be a living donor for his bride. Her life and joy was and is his greatest aim. For he was living out the words he promised to her at the alter on their wedding day.
