My heart is heavy for the Mummert family who have suffered the loss of their little Harrison yesterday, several weeks before he was due. Like Nora, Harrison was diagnosed with trisomy 18 while he was still in utero. Like William and I, Harrison’s Mommy & Daddy promised him, “I Will Carry You.” And they did. They carried him for exactly the time that God had mapped out for Harrison. James and Emily will continue to carry their precious son, but now it is in their hearts, until they meet again.
We’re so very sorry for your loss, James & Emily. Please know that you have been and will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you and bestow extra helpings of the familiar peace that surpasses all understanding.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3-7 NIV)
