For some reason, the comments have not been enabled for the last few posts. I think that we've fixed it now.

I couldn't post under Christmas present. I wanted you to know you're always in our prayers. I know this can be a really tough time of year when things aren't going quite as planned. I have no idea what it's like to lose a baby. I hope I never do. I do know what it's like to feel like you're in a place where you won't be happy again. However, because you have been forced to feel this great grief, you will experience that much more joy later. Someday you'll realize you're indeed happy again, and it will be the best moment. It's kind of like finding a long lost friend. It will creep up on you when you're leat expecting it. It may not even be associated with anything big. For me it was a sunrise. Nothing grand had happened I just realized I was happy. Because you want to be happy and feel joy again, you will. I have no idea what God's plans are for you, but you will know when your on the right path. I don't know why we must experience what we do. All I know is we must continue to experience and be open to God's plan. Even the tough parts. Hang in there. Please know we are always there for you. Shan

Shannon was pretty eloquent in her writing...I second everything she just said.

I have no idea what it is like to love a child and then have to hand them over to heaven just a short time later. It is the unthinkable. I want you to know, though, that the four of you are never far from our thoughts and always in our prayers. It isn't the same - but the LT crew has certainly all experienced some intensely rough times in our short time on earth. I remember feeling like I would never smile again, and I still have days that are like that sometimes. Maybe it is because of the bad times that we cling together and hopefully comfort each other once in a while.

This much is true....the bad times can still be really bad, but I can tell you in our journey, the good times are really, really good...maybe even better because we have a totally different perspective on life now. Things mean so much more. I pray for the same good times for you.

We love you guys.
