10,000

I received word yesterday that because of your generosity, over $10,000 has now been raised for the construction of Isaac's playground at our church.

Thank you.

Your generosity speaks volumes to me about the fact that my son's life matters to you. That's the greatest gift.... for a parent to know that her child matters and has had an impact on the lives of others.

Thank you for continuing to pray for us, cry with us, encourage us, and carry us. We are so grateful...

Oh Stacy, Isaac matters and will always matter for that fact! He has touched more lives than you or I may ever know. I have never had the pleasure of meeting you in person, however I follow your blog and read it almost daily. You truly are an inspiration and Isaac a true miracle and blessing. I am so thankful to you for sharing your sweet boy with the rest of us. Your faith, strength and conviction is amazing. Your story has definitely brought me closer to God. Praying for you this holiday season.

Stacy,
Your child matters so much to me even though we have never met and live on opposite sides of the country. I just sent in my donation (from Hawaii) two days ago, so I doubt it's reached the church yet, but I am so glad to know that you are surrounded by so many loving and caring people. Continuing to pray for you.

That has totally made my day. I have never met you or your family, but I check this blog often, pray for you, and Issac makes his way into my thoughts daily. What an amazing tribute to your beautiful son

AWESOME!
What a blessing that is going to be an awesome memorial for Isaac. I know you will be pushing one of Isaac's siblings in a swing at the park someday!

Always in my prayers!!

What I would give to have met your little boy!

I cannot wait to see Isaac's playground being constructed through photos.

You must be so excited! xxx.

I can only imagine that Isaac would be so happy to know that so many care about him...that love will be echoed in the laughs of children who use that playground. What a special way to honor a little guy who touched so many.
Still praying for you all.

You don't know me but I just wanted tell that I am sorry about what you are going through. And I think your son is so beautiful and he has made an impact on my life and I did'nt even know him...I will be praying for you and your husband.

Laura said...

Wonderful news on the fundraising! Isaac matters to so many - he has made such an impact in his all too short life!

Julie said...

I am praying for you today as you miss your sweet baby boy.

Foreverloves said...

I'm so glad! What an amazing accomplishment. I only wish I could do something so large for my sons. Have a blessed and peaceful christmas. Isaac matters!!

Isaac STILL matters-to so many of us!YOU and SPENSER matter. You are "carried" everyday, up to the throne room, in prayer. Your story has touched so many. May God continue to keep you close to His heart.

Dana Speaker said...

I am so touched by your words and your on going life story. I feel like I was there with you through it all. I feel the hurt and the sadness and the emptyness. I know it doesn't seem like it now, but things do get a little better with time. I have experienced my fair share of miscarriages and lost a baby in 2004. I now have a beautiful son who will be 2 the day after christmas this year, so I do know without a doubt that miracles can and do happen.
I think about you and your family often and you are in my prayers.
God bless you through this holiday season.

Aunt Robin said...

Stacy and Spencer- this is wonderful news and what a wonderful way to remember and think of sweet little Isaac! It is so wonderful that other little toddlers will be able to play on Isaac's playground and that their parents taking them there will remember and think of little Isaac and his journey!

Isaac absolutely matters! He always will. Everyone that you come in contact with and everyone who reads your blog will be touched by him, I sure have been.

Julie said...

Isaac matters so much to so many...he has and continues to touch many lives. Thank you for sharing him with us. I'm sending you prayers this season...know you are being held close.

Hi Stacy,

I found your blog through my friend Erin W's blog, and I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Your baby boy is SO beautiful. I've been reading your blog for a while now and praying for you. I had a good friend in May who delivered a stillborn baby boy. You both have been very open with your pain and grief and I'm sure that is not easy, but what a blessing for others. I've had two miscarriages myself, and it is healing to read your words. I know that in no way compares to your pain. I just wanted to let you know I'll continue reading and praying.
Love,
Kate

Thank you for sharing your story, for sharing Issac with us. I pray that 2009 will bring much happiness and above all peace for you.

Please take care.
