Numbers 6: 24-26: The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
Feels like we’ve been here before with this little guy. And so we have. Only this time, it’s for real. And so I reiterate my words from before: Baby M, we love you. And even harder than not getting to continue to raise you up through your childhood and beyond is the not knowing anything about what will become of you after tomorrow. I think that’s what hurts the most.
We give you over to the hands of God. May He watch over you and guide you all the days of your life.

sitting in the computer lab at school, trying not ball my eyes out for you.
My heart is so sad for you and your precious family:( I can’t imagine what you must feeling. I know you try to “prepare” yourself, but you never really can. We’ll be praying for you as you transition to the next phase of your family’s journey and for this sweet little one and the path he continues on…may God guide and protect him, and may he come to know the Savior.
Knowing that you gave this child the best you could give doesn’t make his leaving any easier, I’m sure. But now placing your trust in God to protect and direct his life is in keeping with the nurturing you have lovingly begun in his very young life. I pray that God will continue to bless your whole family as you move forward.
I read other’s comments and they are saying so eloquently, what I can’t seem to say. My heart hurts with you. I am amazed by your strength and Christ-like heart that loves unconditionally, what may not be returned (in this case just because of the unknowns of this baby’s future). I know eternity will tell.
