The Lord gives and the Lord takes. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Our strong warrior Sloane passed away Monday evening January 4th when the doctors could no longer find a heartbeat. She came into this world sleeping on January 5th at 1:56 am.

Heartbroken doesn’t begin to describe how we feel or how dark and scary the world now looks. I’m so thankful for every kick, roll, and wiggle I got to feel from Sloane – they are all I will have in this lifetime.

Thank you to those that have walked this long road with us. I will never know why we were chosen for this journey but I know thankful for the ways Sloane changed our life.

Please keep praying for us. Pray that we see light again.
