Struggling

I've been really struggling to put my fingers to the keyboard and share what's in my heart.  Our little Congolese adoption community was rocked last week with the passing of little baby Theo.  Theo came to the US about 10 months ago.  Within a few weeks of coming home to be with his sweet family, Theo was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia.  He passed away after a hard fought battle.  Another one of our dear friends also lost their baby this week.  Two little precious lives lost in one week.  It's one of those things that I will never understand.

I attended my first funeral service for a child and with that, my emotions are all over the place. I'm having some tough conversations with God.  If I were to write about all of it and share my feelings about the unfairness of life sometimes, it would not be pretty.  I just can't seem to make sense of any of it.  Perhaps soon I'll be ready to talk about it, but not yet.  In the mean time, could you all go and leave Theo's family some love today?  They have been a pillar of strength, but I'm sure they could use all of the prayers and words of encouragement from strangers that they can get.
