heavy hearts

I haven't written for a while. We had such a nice weekend but we're dealing with some really, really tragic news. A dear friend birthed a beautiful, beautiful big baby boy... and the unspeakable happened. He had trouble joining the world and his little shoulders got stuck and he was left without oxygen for a little while. They revived him but it was too much for his little body and a day after he joined us he passed away.

It's desperately sad,

Please send love and light.

  1. Oh how terribly terribly sad. I am so sorry for your friend's loss, and for the fear and sadness that evokes in your hearts as well. Tragedy that makes no sense, that we're unprepared for and feels unfair, is just the worst.

  2. I don't know Sarah, but Christ I felt like I was punched in the stomach when I found out. It's just horrific. Makes you hold the little ones all the closer, doesn't it? Love to you, Al and love to everyone grieving xxx

  8. I have not on top of my blogs and have read this until just now. This is simply heartbreaking. I have tears running down my face after visiting the website and looking at the pictures. I often wonder why some of us have been so blessed while others must deal with such difficulty. There is a part of me that grieves with you and with your friend. I am even more thankful for the blessings in my life and will hug my Little Man a little closer tonight.
