missed visit.


The other day Jacob and I drove down to visit little Joseph at the cemetery. The road was closed! The road to cemetery was closed! (due to construction). We silently drove home. I did. I did cry. We don't live right down the road from him anymore. It was a LONG ride home.



I also just found out that my friends (who were to be adopting this January) lost their little girl. She was stillborn this weekend.

My heart hurts today!

My heart hurts for you. I'm so sorry you weren't able to visit. I know that God will restore what was lost, and while it can not be the same, it will be. God bless.

Rachel,
I'm so sorry that you were unable to go for a visit. Hopefully everything will be open again the next time you go.

We are still waiting to hear about the funeral arrangements. Thanks for your prayers for us.
