Missing Noah in pictures...part 1

Noah adored his dad.

I adored watching them together.

(You can tell how much Noah loved Josh in these pictures because he has offered Josh his pacifier... I am smiling and crying at the same time just thinking about it.)

Now that is what I call bonding! What awesome memories. Please let them be treasures ... and never anchors. It must sound so empty now and perhaps you will want to scream from hearing it again ... but the truth our God purchased for us is the truth that your days with Noah are interrupted and not ended.

Never ended.

What a sweet, sweet boy. Sharing pacifiers is not something done lightly . . . or so I hear. What a great memory!

So precious! I keep thinking about his future siblings when I see these pictures. What a treasure for them, too. My husband's mom had a baby afflicted with Down Syndrome, who died of pneumonia at 8 months old. My husband and his only other sister, Lorrie, have never even seen a picture of their deceased sibling. Of course, in Paradise it won't matter. I believe they'll know her.

I'm so happy that you're writing. I'm sure it's very hard, but I do think it helps to share the pain. God has put all your readers and friends in place to pray for and love you.

You don't know me but I have been reading your story for months. I found your link on a friend of a friend's blog. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. You have a beautiful little boy and I cried when I watched the video played at his memorial. I pray for the peace that passes all understanding during this time of grieving. What a great thing it is to know that our God is the God of all comfort!

Oh, nice boy! Those pacifiers are some special stuff. And I remember you posting about Noah refusing to sleep until Josh came home from a trip.

I'm sure you are very thankful for the technology today to have a keepsake of great memories.

You don't know me either as I am a friend of a friend. I just recently found your blog...when Noah was in the hospital.

Thank you for sharing Noah with us. I have cried many times while reading your blog. I am so sorry you and your husband are experiencing this loss. I truly can't imagine. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

I found your blog some time ago and being a busy mom of a 9 month old have not looked in a couple of weeks. I am so sorry to learn on Noah's passing. Please know that your story has touched so many hearts and lives. As I sit and hold my daughter I pray that God gives you the peace you need to get you and your family through today and the many hard days ahead. God's grace will comfort you and keep you. Please know that I hold you and your family in my heart and in my prayers
