They say a picture is worth a thousand words...I'll let these speak for me tonight as we are still struggling with the last 24 hours...

Julie and Tim,
There are no words that will take the pain away right now. Please know that there are HUNDREDS (maybe thousands!) of people praying for you right now -- and we pray that God will shower you with His peace. Julie, you should be commended for everything you did for Will. The past few months for you have been so tough and you did such an amazing job (better than many women could have done) to give Will the best chance possible. Be proud of yourself and know that you did EVERYTHING you could have...
Will is one of the most precious little baby boys I've ever seen -- don't forget you'll see him again with Jesus. I can just see him now, with Jesus holding his little hand. He's so proud to have you and Tim as his earthly parents -- you did so much for him.
God's peace to you,
The Davani Family

Tim & Julie,
I am Alissa Circle's mom and she has been sharing your story with me for weeks. My heart breaks for you both as you give your newborn son back to God. I have friends in Grand Rapids, MI, who would like to help you in your time of need. Please let me know how to reach you and someone will call you right away. I pray that God will continue to comfort you both and hold you up during this difficult time.

I feel so inadequate to offer you anything Julie. I know I can (and will!!!) offer you my continued prayers. Also, hoping she doesn't mind, but the song below was written by Angie Smith and her husband for their daughter Audrey Caroline - you know the one. I hope their words are a comfort to you and Tim and they know better than anyone what you are feeling.

Oh Julie, you weren't kidding...Will is perfect! I've never felt like this - SO devestated for your loss; that such a perfect little boy wasn't able to stay with his Mommy and Daddy, but SO at peace that Will is healed, fully and completely with the Lord. Heaven is certainly celebrating his arrival.

All my love and continued prayers for your family!

I Will Carry You (Angie & Todd Smith)

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I'm not
Truth is I'm barely hanging on
But there's a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says...

I've shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen Me
To carry you

I know you feel so broken, so sad...I know you are wondering why God let this happen...I wish I had answers, comforts, anything to ease this agony. But I know there is none that I can offer. We are praying so much for you. Everyone we know are praying for you. Just remember that God is holding you so closely to Himself. And even though you are so lost in sadness, He is right there beside you. We are continuing to pray for you.
