Well.....we're back



Coming back is always so difficult. I'm at work today but feel so distant from everything and everyone around me. It is as if the world is turning but I am standing still. We miss little G so much it hurts. If you're wondering what it feels like - I compare it to being breathless and/or having the wind knocked out of your lungs. But instead of it lasting a brief moment, it lasts much longer. I still have to upload pix, but here are two of them from last Thursday when we received him. Those smiles you see in the picture were left behind. They didn't quite make the trip back to Jax with us.
That's all for now...I don't have much in me today but sadness and longing for our little boy.

You both are so brave and I promise that the strength that God has given you and will continue to give you will be everlasting. I look forward to seeing those new pix and admire you both so much!

Maria, I am praying for you. No wonder you were so heavy on me this morning. I know exactly how you are feeling (I went through it last Wednesday) and since there are no words to help, just know that I am praying for you. From one mom to another, I am here for you. May the love of our Lord Jesus surround you with his love and peace. When you are ready, I can't wait to see your pics! Esther (FTC)
