The loss of a child...

I write this with tears rolling down my face and a heartbreak that is unimaginable to me. Jeff and I have dear friends who lost their baby tonight. He has had a struggle since birth but his death this December night was unexpected. His father was putting him down to sleep like he does every night when Carter isn't in the hospital and Carter gave a gasp, and then was gone. Trent tried CPR to no avail and it was done. The journey of life, over. I am beyond sad. I can not imagine having a child and then losing him. Sadness prevails tonight, but in my wonderful daughter's words, I have some solace. "Mom, Jesus will have a present for him." With that, I find some peace.

Here he is having a big ol' time with his 3-D Glasses
