Today has been a little rough to be completely honest...but we are surviving. I just keep remembering all of the uplifting messages that were sent our way last week. It was truly amazing. I guess God knew tough times were coming and He worked through you to help prepare us. So, thank you for listening to your hearts and reaching out to us. Thank you for all of the emails, the comments, texts, the letters, cards, and books. Please know that all of it is truly helpful and healing. Thank you for allowing God to work through you to wrap His arms around us. I feel so blessed to be in the presence of people who allow God's work to be done through them.

I just had to add this makes me smile. Avery was just hanging out in Wyatt's room with me the other day. I really love her :)


  1. Such a sweet picture of Avery, Jessica. She misses Wyatt, too. I'm so sorry today has been a rough day. One day at a time. Love you.

  2. That is so sweet. Sending a big hug your way. Praying tomorrow is a better day and you feel completely surrounded by God's peace and love.

  3. We said a prayer for you and Ryan today. We think about you guys often. My heart just hurts for you. I just cannot imagine what you are feeling, but I love to read what you share. If you ever need anything at all, I'm just down the street and would be glad to listen or just take the dogs for a walk. Gracey would love to play with Avery!
    Love, Amy

  4. Sweet, Jess - my heart hurts so much for you and Ryan. And, at the same time, I am in awe of both of you as well as amazed with precious Wyatt and the impact he has made on each of us. Love you so much!
