thanks jess!

I never respond to comments...even though I ALWAYS read them (over and over)...but I just had to today. Thanks so much Jessica! This thought had never come to mind and it really made my day. Thank you for reminding me that I was enough. There are certainly days I wish I could have been more for him. In fact, the day Wyatt passed away, I remember standing outside our door while they x-rayed his stomach and just crying. Not because I was scared at that moment...or because I couldn't take any more...but because I wanted to be enough for our little guy. I did not want to have to depend on anyone to take care of him. I simply wanted to do it....all by myself. But, you are right Jess, for a time, I was able to take care of my little man all by myself. What a satisfying thought! I will treasure this forever.


  1. You're so welcome! Love you girl, and I love that I got to meet precious Wyatt!

  2. Ritchie Family,
    We have never met, however I feel that I know you. I am a friend of Leslies. My sister in law lost her baby after 3 days in February. I think of sweet Julia everyday, which makes me also think about Wyatt. I know that sounds strange from a stranger, but my sister in law says that she appreciates people just letting her know that they are thinking of her, so I wanted to do the same.
    She has found comfort in 2 books called "Out of the Caynon" and "An extact replica of a figment of my immagination." I dont know if these will help you, but I wanted to pass them along.
    You sent me a thank you note for a basket of goodies that some girls put together with Wyatts picture. What an angel. I know that he and Julia have found each other and play together with smiles on their faces and love in their hearts for their parents.
    Please know you are always in my prayers and if there is anything I can do, please do not hesitate to contact me.
    All my love and prayers,
    Elissa Bennett
