Meet Isaac...

Information about a memorial service and about Isaac's playground will posted shortly. But for now, we wanted you to meet our sweet Isaac...


We are so grateful for your overwhelming prayers and support today... our hearts are hurting, but you have helped make the load a little bit lighter.

I don't know you, but have read your story. I can't even imagine the pain as well as joy you and your family have experienced. The joy of a pregnancy and the loss of a child. My heart aches for your loss, but at the same time, you have displayed such an immense amount of fath and strength and it is so very inspiring. Please continue to remain strong to your faith. Although God makes decisions in our lives that may cause pain and heartache, he always has a plan, even if it doesn't make sense. Your precious Issac is just beautiful! He will be your angel and help you through the difficult road ahead.
With deepest sympathy,
Charlotte

What a precious, beautiful boy! I am so glad you shared your blog address w/church. Like others I have been deeply moved by your faith and God's faithfulness throughout this journey. Listening again to Natalie Grant's song, "Held" has so much meaning now on so many levels. We're praying that you feel "held" by our Father, surrounded by His great love. We rejoice that you held Isaac and poured so much love into him in the moments you had together. We pray you are comforted that he is now held by the arms of Jesus. And we love you and thank you for the privelege of upholding you and Spencer in prayer. We will continue to do so.

Kelly said...

From one angel's mommy to another...

Im so sorry for your loss tonight. On October 27, 2007 I sat in our home and said "goodbye..til we meet again" to our precious 5 month old daugther Liberty. I don't know exactly why the good Lord calls these precious souls home so early..but I do know that each one has a purpose in this world and in our lives. I have learned more over this past year than in my 25 years put together..about faith, hope and love. Liberty passed away the night (just hours) before my birthday..and oh how I am dreading the 27th and 28th this year..but I continue to praise God in spite of my pain for I know His plans are to prosper us, not to harm us..to give us a hope and a future...so as hard as this is, just surrender yourself to our Heavenly Father...He knows of your pain and is there to comfort you through each and every single tear. Please know that I am here for you if you EVER need a "shoulder" to cry on...you are a wonderful mommy and God is certainly proud of the way you have glorified Him on this journey...
I pray for peace for you and your husband, and the rest of your family...feel free to write anytime day or night.

God bless you guys...

Know that you are lifted up in prayer by all of you wonderful friends and those of us that feel like we know you but have never been blessed to meet you in person.

You have been blessed!

I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. 1 Samuel 1:27-28

I can not comprehend the loss...I pray you are feeling His presence for I am certain He is near.

Thank you for sharing a picture of Isaac. He is absolutely beautiful. I don't know you personally, but I just wanted to say that your story has really touched me. It's amazing to me how someone can have so much courage and faith in your situation. I only hope that I can be half as courageous as you two have been during your journey.

I am deeply sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for you in the days ahead.

Stacy, Spencer and family.
Thank you for sharing such private pictures of your beautiful Isaac.
The pain of losing a child is unlike anything else. I hope that knowing that strangers are praying and sending love your way will bring you comfort. I will pray that our FATHER will place his loving arms around you and strengthen your body and spirit. Call out to him...he will hear you.

"Oh my God." That is exactly wht I said when I saw that photo. Isaac is one of the most beautiful babies I have ever seen. What an incredible child of God he is.

May the love of Christ, family, friends, and time heal your broken hearts.

What a sweet baby boy! I am an NICU nurse educator in Texas. I have seen this condition numerous times and it absolutely is still gut wrenching to see such a beautiful baby not get to be with his parents.

If it is this hard for me to see over and over, I can't even fathome what you must be feeling. I pray that God has you both tightly in His arms, and that you might even find a moment of comfort.

In Christ's Love,

Amanda in Amarillo

God bless you Stacey for having the strenth to share this with perfect strangers... for opening your heart to other people and letting them catch a glimpse of what God has done in your heart through Little Isaac...
Most newborns (including my own) are somewhat ugly right after birth... God didn't allow that with Isaac... he just barely looks like a newborn. Perfect round head... beautiful complexion... and that hair! So cute!!! Isn't God good? Thank you for showing people what it means to love... even if some would say that you would never recieve anything in return... we all can see that that is not the case. I work at a clinic where we try to help women with unwanted pregnancies find other options... if they could only see how you loved you baby before he was even born! He certainly was not just a "fetus" to you... God bless you...not that he hasn't already... Thank you...

Wow... I read your blog for the first time this morning... i cried my eyes out! What an incredible strong woman you are! I could never imagine.... He is the most adorable baby. Just know that he is one of the luckiest ones who only had to enter this world for a moment before he could return to eternal happiness.
