Maxson was SO looking into your eyes! I loved seeing that! Hearing his precious cries, seeing him nestled on your chest, your wedding rings on his hand & the three of your hands on the Bible...what an AMAZING video to honor Max's incredible life! Watching the video made me so proud of Max & the effort he gave to have life - what a determined little guy! You are blessed to have him as your son & he is blessed to have you as parents! Many thanks for sharing...praying in Georgia.

What a beautiful tribute to a magnificent child. I found your blog through another one that I followed. I am praying for you even though I do not know you. I am a new mother and think about you constantly. It was a difficult journey in getting my children here. I do not know the hurt you feel, but can only imagine. God bless you!

Jasmine said...

There are no words that can describe the power of love that is felt between the mother, father, and new born baby. Your video is beautiful. Maxson is truly blessed with wonderful parents.

We don't know one another but after watching this tribute to your beautiful son I was moved to comment. This was the most bitter sweet thing I have ever witnessed. My heart breaks for you and I pray that you can find comfort in the love of your family and friends. I happened across Maxson's obituary and then his blogspot. Never have I read such honest, raw emotion. You both communicated your thoughts and feelings beautifully. You don't know it and I know this is not the reason for the blogspot but you are going to help many people with this site. Stay strong and cling to one another. There will be brighter days. When God closes one door he opens another, it's just hell in the hallway sometimes. You will make it through.

I am lifting you and your family up in prayers. I just finished reading a book by Al and Joanna Lacy. The Tender Flame. A key verse in the book is "as for God, His way is perfect". Psalms. I hope this verse will be uplifting to you.

Cynthia said...

What a beautiful tribute. Thinking about you and praying that someday you find peace.

I love the picture where Max is gripping mommy's finger & all hands are on the Bible... that picture touches my heart so much!

All I can say is WOW! What an amazing tribute. The Maxson song is sooo beautiful. God bless you and your family.

Polly & Steve said...

The tribute has so touched my heart, I wish there was something that I could say, but words can not express the beauty of your love for your "Miracle Max". I will pray for you even though I don't know you. You are my brother and sister in Christ. May God give you the strength to endure the pain that will never be better but to have the ability to tolerate the bad times. Be there for one another and if there is ever anything we can do to help other than prayer, please feel free to ask.
Yours in Christ,
Polly and Steve
