Jump on In

I would like to preface this post in saying that Spencer and I are so thankful for the prayers and word of encouragement you have spoken, and continue to speak on our behalf. We treasure them greatly.

Many of you have left comments or e-mailed me asking how those of you, who don't play golf or who live too far away to play, could participate in Isaac's Golf Tournament. We are humbled that folks would be looking for ways to take part in this. We invite you to jump on in and join us.

Just a little background... the tournament is being sponsored by the men's ministry at out church, Mountain View Community Church, and will be played at Worthington Manor Golf Club on August 21, 2009. This inaugural year of the event, the proceeds from the tournament will be going to the perinatal loss unit at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital where I delivered Isaac. The perinatal loss unit provides support and resources for parents who have lost a child just before, at, or shortly after birth. You can find more information about the tournament here.

More than anything, we covet your prayers for this tournament... for God to be honored in all aspects of the tournament, that God would draw people to Himself through Isaac's story, for the hearts of those who will be playing, and of course, for good weather.

In addition, if you feel compelled to be involved in other ways we could use your help.

We are looking for a corporate sponsor to provide funding for the giveaway for the tournament. We are hoping to be able to provide each golfer with a golf shirt embroidered with the tournament's logo designed by the incredibly talented Danielle, also known as The Design Girl. Please contact me directly at isaacsgolftournament@yahoo.com to discuss the specifics if this is a way you might be able to get involved.

We are also looking for folks who are willing to be hole sponsors. Hole sponsorship is $250 and is completely tax deductible.

Lastly, we are looking for folks who would be willing to serve as contributors. Funds from contributors will be used to help offset the costs associated with running the tournament.

If you are interested in hole sponsorship or contributing in some way, please also e-mail me at isaacsgolftournament@yahoo.com so that I can e-mail you the hole sponsor forms and provide you with specific details.

If you are local and would like to participate in this event, we would love for you to join us!! Please visit http://isaacsgolftournament.org to register.

Most of all, we just appreciate your prayers as we seek the Lord in His plans for this tournament, and trust him to use this in part of His process of making beauty from ashes.

I wanted to say that I came across your blog and have gone back to your beginning with Issac. I had my first baby on Oct. 22nd 08 and your story touches me close to heart because I realize Issac would be my son's age.

I am touched that you are allowing God to speak through your story of heartache and loss - and ultimately your road that follows. I can see how God reached out to others through your son, just as I have been reached through Kayleigh Freeman's story.

I would like to follow your story and walk this road with you. And I just have to say (although you certainly KNOW yourself) - in those photos of your son... he is just so perfect.

This all is so exciting and I am so thrilled for you my friend that you have this surrounding you and letting Issac's light continue to shine so brightly.

I stumbled upon your blog when looking for help on what to say to a dear gal pal who lost an adult son several yrs ago. Issac's story is so touching.Issac, your Mama's words are so inspiring.
Bless you & your family.

Dear Stacy,
I have been following your story since before Isaac's birth. I am so sorry that you can no longer hold him in your arms. I am so impressed at the many ways that you honour Isaac's memory, and the way you speak so honestly about your grief.
