HOW BEAUTIFUL! Look at everyone holding little Christian! These pics are gorgeous, Leah, and an excellent way to spend Christian's one month 'birthday'. God bless!

I never physically held your beautiful Christian but I hold him in my heart because you are so generous and loving to share him with all of us.

With love and gratitude,

Leah,
I love all the pictures you posted and I am glad to see that you took so many. You will always have a way to go back and physically see the impact Christian's life had on all of those that love you and held you up in prayer while helping you celebrate his beautiful little life. What a wordy sentence i know, i just didn't know how else to say it.
I still pray for you daily, and can't wait to see pictures of his garden in bloom!
Lifting you in prayer, Ginger

This is so beautiful. What a blessing that so many friends and family were able to meet Christian and love on him, and that you have these beautiful pictures to remember each moment. I don't even know you, but every time I read your blog I am brought to tears. Christian's life is so beautiful and has touched so many. Thank you for sharing with all of us. I continue to pray for you and your family as you walk this journey.
