Sleep now.....little one

On February 27th, 2009 Colten was called home to live with our Heavenly Father again. Though we don't yet fully understand the purpose of his short existence, we do know we'll see him again. The fact that we have the pure knowledge that Colten will be with our family someday, gives us comfort and helps us pull through the days we think we won't be able to survive. I also am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for all that I am blessed with in this life. It has been a hard couple of months. I can't see the purpose of this trial yet, but I have faith that there is a reason for everything. And while I can see but a small bit of the picture I know
there is more in store and one day all the pieces of the puzzle will fall
together. I also have faith that one day, Colten will receive all the opportunities he would have had in this life. I know I will greet him and hold him once again.

For those of you who haven't heard, on friday the 27th we went to labor and delivery at the hospital because I hadn't felt the baby move for awhile. After we arrived, they couldn't find
a heart-beat and after confirming it through an ultrasound, we found out our baby boy no longer was with us.

Thank you so much to all of our friends and family who have supported us through this trying time. If it weren't for all of you, we literally don't know how we could have
gotten through this last week. All our love to you!! A big thank you to my Mom and sister, Kellie, for coming to Arizona and giving me all your love and support.
There's one other special person I'd like to thank.....Scott, my sweet husband. This time has been so extremely difficult for both of us. I am so glad he was there when I needed a soft place to land and thought the pain was too great to bare. He loved, comforted, supported, held, and led me when he himself could have used someone to do the same for him. Thank you for all you have done. You have taken great care of me and I am yours faithfully..eternally.

He must have been one special little boy for Heavenly Father to need him back so quickly. You are in our prayers.

Karen and Joe said...

What amazing faith you have, I am touched by your words and the strength you have by sharing about this experience. I'm so sorry that he wasn't able to spend time with you in your family here on earth, but as you said so well, he will be very much apart of your family in heaven. We will pray for you to be comforted and lifted up through this trial.

We are so sorry for your loss. It is hard to understand why he was taken so soon, or why he never had a chance at life. He must have been so special he didn't need to prove anything on this earth. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love Brandon and Shayla
