Jace was the miracle that taught us all how precious the life of a child truly is.
I'm so very, very sorry to learn of your tremendous loss. I work with parents of children 0-3 and share the horror of shaken baby syndrome often. I pray God's comfort and care be wrapped around you and your entire family as you mourn the loss of your beloved nephew.
Nothing I could say can make the pain any lesser for you, though you dont know me, I wish so bad I could ease your pain. I sat here reading your blog, my throat hurting so bad from trying to choke back the tears so that my own children dont see me and want to know whats wrong. I have been raised in church my whole life and it is times like this where I can understand why some question the existance of God. I myself have been doing some questioning over the last couple of years....but please keep believing and know that I am praying for your family and will keep you close to my heart.
I don't we have never met but I really want you to know that you are in my prayers. I am so sorry that you have to walk this road. ((HUGS))
I know Andrea from college, and I have been following your blog through her. My heart goes out to you and your family. I think it is wonderful that other children will receive healing through Jace's organs, but it breaks my heart that y'all have to say goodbye to him in order to do so. I am a counselor that works with foster kids, and I have a client with SBS, and it makes me so angry. I am so sorry Jace was taken from you. I have been praying and will continue to pray that the Lord's peace surrounds you and comforts you at this time.
Stacey, it's Teresa Parsley Edwards here. My dad was minister of First Christian, Durant, when you were a kid. Your aunt Nancy was my college roommate. Just here to say that I am holding you and all of your family in my heart. Sitting here crying my eyes out about Jace, and and at the same time full of deep gratitude and admiration for all you and Leslie have done not only for Jace, but now for the three who received his organs, and for other children who may potentially be saved by your blogging here to inspire and remind us that WE are the advocates for children in our world. ALL children. Always. You and your family will be in my thoughts. For Jace, and for many othe children, THANK YOU.
I am a mother too. I have a son too. I don't know what to say because there really isn't anything that will make it better right now. I just wanted you to know that there is one more person praying for you and your family and I am SOOO sorry for your loss.
I can't even imagine the pain and hurt that you are feeling right now. I have been following your blog from the begining and I have held my children a little closer every moment since. My heart and prayers will continue to be with your family in this time of mourning.
Bless your heart. I am so sorry for your loss and wish there was something I could do to take away your pain as I sit and read your blogs. I just want to encourage you that God is faithful even when we don't understand or know why. It takes tremendous faith to stand where you are right now and still believe. I admire you for your bravery and I know God and Jace are also as they are looking down on you from heaven. I don't know you but want you to know someone else is praying for you right now. Its right now during this time there are 2 feet prints in the sand instead of 4. He is carrying you.
