being still and knowing that He is God...

It is with deep sadness that I visit my beloved blog this morning.

Baby Jack Oliver Young went to be with his loving Heavenly Father yesterday, due to a prolapsed (cord comes first) and secondly, a true knot in his cord.

My family and I deeply appreciate your prayers and sensitivity at this time...

I will try to get back on with more information later...

Such a sweet boy he was...and if you could've seen all that crazy hair he had...all that heartburn.

I weep.

Correction: True knot was first reason Jack didn't make it. Once labor began and he began his descent, knot tightened and cut off his blood supply. Prolapsed cord was the response to this. I still just can't believe this happened to my sweet boy. I will never be OK with this... 9/14/12

Seeing this only makes me cry even harder. I feel as if I have missed meeting a true miracle, and yet, I realize that I have never even met any of your 5 little precious miracles other than through virtual time and space. Will, Ethan, Melanie, Levi, and Mollie are ever so blessed to have you and David as parents. And, I just know how much Jack is loved. I was even wondering what would hav been his nickname, if he would have been affectionately known as JOY?

I, too, weep!

Thank you for making your family such a real part of my life that I feel such heartache just hearing such devastating news. I truly love you all, and I pray for ya'll.

So, I sit here and weep and pray!

Praying for your family! Love your verse. . . "Be still and know that I am God". God made that verse so very real to us as we went through our journey with Noah. God will give you what you need as the minutes go by. Keep clinging to Him, and we will continue to pray for strength, peace and comfort as you go forward. - Dan & Heather Zike

I am so sorry.
The feelings I try to portray through words - will never work.
We have all been praying for you and your family.
Please know that I...
I wish I could give you a big hug and shed tears with you. My heart hurts SO badly. I wish there were more that I could do besides pray. But, I will continue to pray because I know the comfort that the Lord brings in sorrow.
I love you dearly and cherish your friendship.
I am just across the yard if you want me to do anything for you guys.
With love and many tears for you and Baby Jack,
Tashena

Laurie, I have felt so blessed to have met you and should have told you before. While reading about you and your family I have gotten to know you and see the great love you all have for our Lord and Savior. I hurt for you and can not imagine...Just know the Lord has His loving arms wrapped around all of you. HE is the Rock and our Salvation! My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love, JoEllen
