Christian's Birthday Tribute


Dear Friends,

I am working on my next post in the next day or two. But, I wanted to post this video Ryan made as a tribute to our son's life. Today is Christian's birthday...so I much I need to say...but I want to let this video tell you some of our story...

You'll have to pause my music at the bottom of my page in order for this video to run properly...

With Love,

Leah

Oh, Leah . . . you have been missed (!!) It is good to hear from you again. What a beautiful video. I am stunned one year has already passed, and am eager to read your upcoming post.

Congratulations on the beautiful son you gave birth to one year ago. One small package and a few days clearly changed your lives forever. Happy birthday, Christian!

I wish I had the resources to help you and Ryan grow your family. You are so clearly a Mom, and I hope for you that you will have the gift of another child to adore and love as you have so tenderly and faithfully done with Christian.

Blessings to you and Ryan.

I love that video... I just wanted to tell you that through my tears for your family I can at least smile knowing that Maddox and Christian are together with the Lord... Praise God we will see them again.

Leah and Ryan the video tribute to your adorable, precious son is so beautiful.

It is so obvious how you loved and cherished him.

May God hold you two firmly in the palm of His hand as you celebrate and remember your sweet Christian.

(So very good to hear from you.)

Hey Leah, I have missed hearing from you... Wow, beautiful video of your time together. I am praying for you right now that you would feel the Lord's peace today. I know those anniversary days are so hard, so full of mixed emotions. We will face the one year anniversary of our Samuel's death in 2 months. I already worry about what that day will be like. Missing your sweet boy with you.
