candles for 2

We dropped off True earlier in the morning at my parent’s house. There were plans to build a birdhouse with Grandpa.

A couple hours later, the horrific news came. Shock. Tears. Overwhelming sadness. As a parent, I could barely breathe. We stopped what we were doing and went straight to my parent’s house to scoop up True and hold him tight. We haven’t let him out of our reach since.

We are in deep prayer and mourning over here.  We’re trying to stay away from the television and instead we are lighting candles, and sending up eons of wishes of comfort and light. We have to collectively help hold the magnitude of this for those who are suffering. And for a long time.

Our hearts are broken.
