In the waiting and the why….

My heart is so heavy tonight.

My sweet friend Stephanie is preparing to say goodbye to her son, 10-month-old Zachary Paul.

We were so innocent and naive back in 2007 when we all (we, being me, Steph, and our mutual friend Kristen) got pregnant with our first babies.

Then I lost mine, and Steph lost hers.  And although we went on to have my Seth in December ‘07, and then her Aaron almost a year to the day later in ‘08, we have both been asked the unthinkable -- to give our second-born sons back to their Maker.

Stephanie and her husband Craig have a handful of days left with their sweet boy….please, please bathe this family that means so much to us in your prayers.  They need a grace and peace that no parent should have to muster, and although I know that they are clinging to the hope of heaven, there is no grief like that of a parent who has to say goodbye so soon…..


You can read more about Zach’s precious fight for his life here.  I know that your prayers and words of encouragement will mean the world to Craig and Steph.

My heart breaks for them. Many prayers for them (and you). Love you, Mon.

I took a few minutes to read a few of the posts about Zach. Heartbreaking, but also amazing to see their strength is in the Lord. Praying for them and that God will continue to be glorified through this.
