As much as I wish I could be reporting a miracle, I have devastating news. Our beautiful Sterling was ushered into heaven last night, while being snuggled in his daddy’s arms. This has been the most excruciating pain we’ve ever felt, but we also feel the Lord’s presence, His hand holding us together, and His strength, peace and comfort.
Precious Sterling was born with a rare metabolic disorder that shut down his entire little system. We’ll never understand why we were chosen to walk this road, but we trust in God’s plan for our lives and for Sterling’s little life. It was short, but impacted many. Thank you for all your support, love and prayers. We wouldn’t have been able to go through this without you guys by our side and we love you all.
I love you, sweet boy. I’m so sorry for all the doctors, pricks, pokes, tubes, tests and scans. It killed us to see you that way, but truly, you’re a lucky boy. You had a fast pass to heaven and now I know you’re at peace. No more pain, just peace. Daddy and I will be here taking care of your sisters and brother, but we will be thinking about you every second of every day until we go home to be with you. The Lord sent us an angel for Christmas and although it has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done to have to give you back, my son, I wouldn’t change having you for the world.
Thank you for the 6 days we had with you. I love being your mama, Sterling.
