More Fanmail - yeah!

Megan writes, "Well, I finally found time to send you some pictures of us being loyal Jacob fans! Here are Finn & Ella being proud supporters! This was not an easy feat trying to get them to stay still AND not fall off the Lounge chair! There is also a picture of me b/c I had to get in there and stop the craziness!

I hope you got my card. I don't know what else to say except that you are both exceptionally strong people and I truly believe God only gives you what you can handle. I think we all know He works in strange ways and is very hard to understand sometimes, but He is always there for us. I am glad you are still blogging, if not for you, but for us too. I know I logged on everyday to get my daily Jacob fix. I miss that tremendously. I know your other 1200 a day visitors miss that too! So, go on as long as you can. Like you said the brain barf is gonna take a long time to all come out! I commend you for how honest you are and my heart breaks for you daily. I haven't had a dry eye either in a while. From one mother to another, I am sending you a big hug

Hi, Just a little note to mention that sometimes being strong is asking for help. So please, anyone...Karen, Jason, anyone... ask for help if you need it. Maybe that too in a way is letting God work though others that are here for you. You are surrounded by love and strength, even when you don't see it through blurred tear reddened eyes.
i just needed to say that i guess.
i love you guys...and your extended blog family. i hate that people hurt and hate that people are afraid to show that they hurt because of being seen as less than strong. that is one of the many miraculous things about this blog and others like it. Thanks.

Just got caught up on your posts for the last few days. I love reading your heart and how you are processing everything. I can't wait to see you, to hug you. I am continuing to pray and I appreciate the fact that we share the 14th to pray for each other, thank you for your prayers for us. I have to say that I didn't know what to expect when I first met Kenzie, someone who shared losing her baby too. And it was so wonderful, comforatable. Even when we were not talking about it, it was just a calm comfort in knowing that she shared my feelings, she knew how I felt. Atlanta will be amazing, it will be healing and I can't wait to celebrate our babies together.
With love friend,

I have typed many messages for you ,but nothing seemed right to send on to you. I remember the pain all too well of people saying nothing, so I wanted you to know I am praying for you guys and think of you many times a day.

Dear Karen and Family,

As with many other comments left, I continue to check in on you each day. I miss sweet little Jacob's commentary :) He really had a way with words. I wonder who he learned that from ? Just a little humor there. Seriously, you each have made me search inside myself and make notice of many things. Thank you.As with all other comments, please do not hesitate to ask for help. Or maybe you just need someone to listen and not have an opinion.... If I can ever help please let me know. God gave many of us a gift in Jacob also, A gift to know that God speaks to us from all ages....
God Bless and Keep You

Hey there- Karen you don't know me, but Jason- we knew each other a long time ago. I have been getting updates from Megan over the past few months. I have 3 daughters and I know what it is to be scared for them. We have had a hard year and a half with our youngest daughter- and through it all I just kept saying as long we can fix it- we can get through it. I don't know how you are "getting through it" right now. I do know that time and faith in God heals all things. They are the only things that can make even the worst situation better. In time you will be able to move on and make sense of your life again. Cherish every moment with your other 2 boys and make sure that you constantly remind them of their baby brother and what a special part of their life (and yours) that he was- even if it was just for a little while.
Your family has been and will remain in our thoughts- Lacie
