Helping Babies

I received a card in the mail today.

I took a deep breath.

I read it.
Tears flowed freely.

1532 ounces of Joshua's milk donated
 to the Indiana Mother's Milk Bank.

As if that little boy didn't do enough in his short little life.

He's saving other babies' lives in his death.

Oh how I miss that sweet baby of mine.

Thank you:) Our family had a baby born at 24 weeks gestation and the milk bank was a life saver to her and the other mom's in the nicu!

Jill, That was a very special Gift you gave and I hope in someway the card brought comfort to you. Although Joshua's life was so short, and God called him back, he has touched so many lives here on earth!
Blessings to you and your family,
Shawn

Jill,
I imagine that so many moments are filled with echoes of those far too brief days...This echo, this reminder of Joshua's blessings and your gift, is beautiful.
