I have to be breif because my heart is absolutely aching and I can't stop crying.
Friday night my friends 4 yr. son Jaccob died in his sleep. They think he had a seziure, but do not know for sure yet.
My friend has type 1 diabeties and can not have another biological child. She and her husband adopted a son Noah in November because her love for children and Jaccob was so deep that she needed to share that love.
I cannot even imagine what she and her husband are going through right now.
The viewing is tomorrow evening. Though I know I must go, I'm terrified of seeing the tiny casket. I know I'll have to see his thick colicky hair and chubby cheeks one more time.
Instead of sending flowers, myself and some of our fiends are going to have a stone put in the Memorial Path at the Detroit Zoo. I had one for my dad and my daughter. My hope is that one day she can take Noah and they can sit in the gardens and remember Jake.
Thank you for letting me talk. This has been a terrible, terrible day.
