We are so blessed to have shared a little time falling in love with your dear baby boy. We have all grown from your example as a loving mother. We will continue to pray for you and Thank God for him.Liz, if you have not heard of Eric Genius, I want to share a song with you.

I'm one of the girls on ICAN, I don't know you but your story has touched me so much. You have more courage than I could ever have. I pray that you have peace in the days ahead and your family surrounds you with love. I've been keeping up with your post, and was checking it last night around 10p.m. and felt this overwhelming need to pray for you at that very moment. Just reading your post has made me feel like I know you. Please know that you have touched my family very deeply. You are in our prayers! God has a precious new little angel watching over us all today! Bless you sweet Jedi and all the ones you have touched in your little life!! You did an amazing job!
Liz and Chris,I have been following your blog for a long time now and have been praying for the entire family each day. My heart is filled with lots of sorrow for you and I shed tears for the pain that you are feeling right now. I will not let up on my prayers for healing sweet memories in the months and years ahead. Jedi is laying in the arms of Jesus now and his little body has been healed completely...no more feeding tubes...no more uncomfortable feelings...he is no longer a sick little baby, but an angelic baby that will greet you all when it is your turn to go be with Jesus. Sending each of you lots of love, hugs and prayers.Love your sister in Christ,KatyMaster's Way UMC - Madison

Oh. That hit me like a punch in the gut - prayers for your children, that they will always understand the gift God gave them in their little saint of a brother. Prayers for you, that you and your husband feel the love and prayers of so many strangers who you gracefully allowed to share in your little boy's life.
My heart breaks for you and your family but at the same time I am so thankful for the time you had with your sweet Jedi. May God Bless you all and hold you close. Mark 10:13-16Christy

I am forever grateful that you entered our lives through the distance.I celebrate the gift Jedi has given all of us, and the lessons learned through your written words.St Jedidiah, pray for us! May you continue to shine brightly in each of our lives whom you have touched and intercede for those who are hardened of heart.

I am so sorry! You don't know me, I just came across your blog now. But I was deeply touched and inspired by your story and also by your courage and faith in God. I'm sure Jedi is so thankful for the love that your family showed him. I'm also sure he was such a precious gift from God. Prayers for your whole family.. God bless you!!
Elizabeth and family,I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Please be blessed by those 13 beautiful days you had with your little saint.
I do not even know how to put this into words worthy enough. We do not know each other (aside from postings on the ICAN board) but your family has touched my life so much that I know there is a part of me that is forever changed. The faith and strength you have demonstrated has me in awe. Throughout reading your blog one of the things that touched me the most are the words of your precious children, they really restored my faith in humanity and love and showed what an amazing mother your are. I am so very very sorry, you all will be in my prayers and my heart.Jamie
Our love and prayers to you all!
May your little saint in heaven intercede with Our Lord and Lady to give you all comfort and peace...you now have such a powerful ally in heaven...But the pain is still deep at this terrible loss... God bless you and you will be in our family's Rosary intentions...Hugs and love in Christ,The Dostalik Family
