We Lost Him…. we lost him.

Our own little Seymen James. My first son. Our first son. Our sweet Savior has gathered him up. Our facilitator received a phone call today (last night) with the news that Seymen has passed away of diabetes that had developed.

We don’t know what this means for us. We don’t know if they will find us another child to commit to or not, but we sincerely hope that our travel on Friday is not delayed… Jordan, we are coming.

  19. In tears I write this for your family tonight.
    For the pass couple of hours I wrote my thoughts in words but yet I had to erase each word. For there were no words to I could write to ease this pain that your family is enduring at this moment. But I want you to know that our Lord is holding him in his loving arms and that our Lord is wrapping his arms also around your family for comfort..
