An Update

I have been wanting to send this update out for several days now, just didn't really know what to say. For those of you who haven't already heard, we did loose our baby boy. We are incredibly sad and heartbroken, but have to think unselfishly and know that he is in a much better place where he is so loved and he will not have to suffer a single day. We take comfort in this although our hearts are broken. I know that one day we will get to hold him for eternity and that makes me smile. I suppose that is really the only thing that can get a person through something like this. The kindness that has been shown to our family is truly amazing. We have had incredible meals for the last 4 weeks provided by our awesome neighborhood, as well as the football coaches wives. That has been such a blessing because there have been days I could barely get out of bed. One of my dearest friends that lives in Chicago came down to stay with us last week for a few days and it was so great to see her. My mom has been here almost the entire month and a half through all of our hardship. I have so many people that have contacted me through facebook, cards and email and I thank each of you. I am not the easiest person to communicate with when I am going through something difficult. I become extremely introverted and sort of shut down. So I want everyone to know that I really do appreciate all the effort you have put forth. I am slowly trying to get back into a regular routine. Hopefully with a little more time it will become easier.

I also am wanting to let anyone who ordered a calendar to know that if you no longer want one I completely understand. If you do please let me know ASAP. I am making them and want to make sure that I have enough for anyone that still wanted one. If you will message via facebook, or post on this blog post I will make sure I get yours made. If you are not in the Owasso area and are going to need yours shipped I have a previous post that addresses shipping. If you have already sent me your check I will be shipping your calendar out by the end of the week. For all the local people, I will message you as soon as yours is done. They will be at Surcee' for pick up.

Again thank you all for all your prayers and support. This has been a terrible time for us but we are looking forward to happy times very soon.



  1. Aw, I love what you said about getting to hold him in eternity! That is so true, and aren't you glad we have the hope and promises and the protection and care that comes from God above? Hang in there sweet friend. And let everyone around you continue to comfort and care for you. It's called "doing life together" and someday you can pay it forward. But for now, rest, heal, and try to find comfort and peace in your "mommy heart".
    I'll be praying for you.

  2. Erin, I'm so sorry for all that you and your family have been through. Praying for peace.
