As many of you already know, having subscribed to our email update list, our son Jacob passed away on Wednesday. We had finally been making plans to bring him home through a hospice program after being born 3 months early and then being diagnosed with an irreversible development lung abnormality, spending 4 long months in the hospital, but God had other plans for our boy and took him home in the early afternoon, Wednesday September 17th. His father and I are completely devastated, but are trying our hardest to remain positive and cheerful, as we feel that is how Jacob would have liked for us to be. We are having a Celebration of Life ceremony, not a funeral, up in New York this coming Saturday, where we will wear bright colors and will play Jacob's favorite songs. No sad music! Every day is hard and incredibly sad, all we ever wanted in this world was that little boy to be well, but we are relying on our faith and our family and friends to bring us through this dark time.
I will still be making posts daily, as I have lots of reviews saved up, but I may not be responsive to emails for the next week or so as we try to solidify service plans, as well as travel plans. I appreciate every comment and email in support of our little man and I will never have the words to thank you all for the kind words and prayers. You can see all of our Jacob pictures at www.snowshome.com/jacob. The photos start from the day after his birth in May and complete on his 4 Month Birthday the 14th of Sept.
