Exactly one week after Violet was born, our close friends Mark & Mary Fisher said goodbye to their little son Micah who passed away less than an hour after he was born. He had major complications that Mark & Mary knew about for the past 6 months.

They have been through an incredibly difficult journey, and we have so many questions. Life seems so terribly unfair sometimes. We’ve had a number of close friends who have had to say goodbye to their children shortly after birth, and it has made me intensely aware of being grateful for the health of our children.

We will miss little Micah even though he was only with us for a very short time. He is now in the arms of his Heavenly Father who loves him much more than we can even fathom! Our prayers are with the Fishers as they walk through their grief.

Life, no matter how small, is so precious! Let’s not take it for granted!
