jonathan edwards

I want to ask you to pray today for Jared and Kristin Edwards. They are delivering their third child, a little boy, Jonathan Jared Edwards, as I type. Jonathan also has Trisomy-18. I am assuming Kristin is still in labor - I believe she went in this morning - or perhaps, Jonathan is here. In recent communications through their own blog, we have learned that Jonathan has appeared to be under some stress in utero and Jared and Kristin were apprehensive that he might not make it through birth. We are praying that that did not happen and that they were able to enjoy some time with their son as Conor and I did with Copeland.

Please check in on them via their blog and send your blessings... hearing from all of you during the incredible duress of Copeland's life was an amazing encouragement to me.

Thank you so much for letting me know about little Jonathan Edwards. I will be praying for him and am still praying for you as you continue seeking the Lord and finding some answers you are longing for. You are so sweet to think of others at this time and I can understand why you do.
Love you and be blessed just being you.

Laurie in Ca.

Boothe and Conor, and Sellers, Thank you for the update...our family has not stopped praying for you even though we have not seen you in a while. We love you- there is not an emotion on this earth or in your heart that He is not acquainted with. And, there is not an emotion or a thought that would make Him turn away. We love you...

I've just read a few of your most recent posts and now here I sit with tears in my eyes just wanting you to know that I understand great grief. I didn't "lose" a child though so I can not identify with your exact feelings. It is my Mom, one of my best friends ever, that is gone. It's been just over 9 months and that grief is still so big I can hardly allow myself to stop and feel it. It is too huge. I fear it will pull me under and drown me. And I wonder who would pick me back up and place my feet on dry ground if that happened. How long would the water overwhelm me if I let it? How long would I be unable to function? And so I don't. I can't. Occassionally, the well of tears is so full, just a few leak out ... but I can't break down. I'd fall apart completely ... and I have no idea how I'd gather up all the scattered pieces. My heart aches for you and I have no words to ease your pain. As a fellow-Christian there are many platitudes that can be spoken, but in my experience, I don't find that they help. Not really ... at least not yet. A broken heart isn't quickly healed - by anything. Blessings to you and yours as you all try to find your way.
