"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

The Next Stage

Dear Friends,
What a couple of days it has been! Full of blessing, full of difficulty, full of tears. Tomorrow we are being transitioned from Foothills Hospital to an incredible facility for families with terminally ill children - the Rotary/Flames House Pediatric Hospice. We’ll have room for our other kids to live there with us, meals will be made for us, and we expect to spend the rest of Rachel’s days there together as a family.

It means so much to us to know that you also want to meet Rachel and know her. We wish we could have more time and opportunity to share her. However, we won’t be able to share her with most of you this way because our time with her will be short and we need to focus on being together as a family during the remaining days, and the Hospice also restricts the number of visitors allowed. In the meantime, just channel your love into prayer for her and us. We will continue to post updates as we are able. We appreciate all of you so much!

Beautiful baby (and you know I don't say that to anyone). I hope you have an amazing time as a family of five. Will be here when you need me. Love to you all.
