Septemer 4, 2008

A year ago today, Stephanie and I awoke for a day of school in Costa Rica and then rushed off to a scheduled sonogram appointment. Stephanie was more than 5 months pregnant and we had only recently arrived in our new home in San Jose. Well....most all of you know the details and difficulty of that day. Many of you have been kind enough to walk us down the road of grief after learning that our son, Levi, would not see the world that we know.

So, here we are one year later. Life is good, most of the time. Challenging, most of the time. And, always it seems, full of adventure. We continue to miss our son...what we "in our mind's eye" envisioned he'd be. Levi would be 4 days shy of 7 months...likely walking, talking and beginning to potty-train (He is my son after all!). With all our sadness over the past year, I am so thankful that one day I'll meet Levi, that seeing him in all his fullness will be a reality. Until then, we'll trust in the goodness of God (while difficult to discern at times) and continue to honor Levi's very short life.

To all of you that have walked this road with us the past 12 months, may you be blessed today in knowing that God continues to touch our lives through you.
