He shot His arrows deep into my heart. The thought of my suffering and hopelessness is bitter beyond words. I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. YET I DARE to Hope when I remember this: The UNFAILING Love of the Lord NEVER ENDS! By His mercies we have been kept from complete destruction.
Lamentations 3:13,19-22

Giving Tate what he deserves

This past week has been rough to say the least. I have been debating on whether or not to set up a place for Tate. I know youve heard me say I cant set up a crib so I decided to set up the pack n' play. I have put blankets and the stuffed animals Kevin and Allie Faith are going to give their baby brother in there. I put a quote up that my sweet in laws gave us when we first found out Tate diagnoses. It says "Everyday Hold A Possibility Of A Miracle". Its so true!
I know some will think that Im setting myself up for disappointment BUT I feel Tate deserves a mommy and daddy that have hope of healing! Tate deserves so much more than I have been giving! So I have set up a place to have if we bring him home even if its for a short time! Thats what Im Hoping and PRAYING for! That I have time with my son!

Cricket,
I think setting up a space for Tate is a great thing to do and you are not setting up yourself for disappointment. Everyone handles these things differently and this is your way of having hope but still being prepared for what may come. I pray for Tate, your family, & you nightly. I know that God can heal Tate and make him whole, but it may not be the way we all want Him too. I pray whatever the outcome your family will be at peace and know that God is there with you all. Wrapping His loving arms around you all and holding you closely.

I am glad that you are being optimistic. My son has a friend named Shawn in his preschool class with him. He will 3 in May. Oh yeah.... and he has T18. He is just as sweet and precious as any little person. Everyday with him is a gift. He can't talk, but he can sign some, and he can walk with a walker. To me that is perfect! If his parents would have listened to some nay sayer Dr. who said there was NO HOPE and decided to terminate they could have lost this most special blessing because even a Dr. can't be 100% sure of the potential of a child. :-) Shawn is living proof that one can never be sure. I wish you the best. God Bless!

Found your blog through Kelly's Korner. Please know that I am praying with you for complete healing for your sweet baby boy. I have claimed that same song for my baby, Jack. He was born with a lymphatic malformation in December that will need treatment all of his life. I believe with all of my heart that our God is bigger and greater than any diagnosis. I trust His plan for our lives, but I believe in His healing power, too. I will continue to pray for you all.
In His love,
Holly
