I can't begin to tell you how uncontrollable my tears were when I read this.
The unthinkable, the thing that has made our hearts tremble, happened. Every one of us who has a special child has worried (uncontrollably at times) to leave. Karen was gone when Jacob died. The poor woman was out for dinner for her birthday (today). She wrote about the facts, but left out the emotions. Please pray for her. I was asleep when Joshua died, but it was different because he was between us. We were with him. I can't imagine the grief, the angry, and chaos in Karen's heart right now.
This one hit me hard. So hard.
