Jordan MichaeL, my precious little boy, was born June 17th, 2006, spent almost 8 months with us here, then went back to be with the Lord February 3rd, 2007. There are no words to express my grief, pain and loss. I long for the day when I can hold him again. However, there are also no words to convey the joy, pride, total adoration and utter awe I found and have just for knowing him...
Please take a look at his photo gallery. It makes a mommy happy to be able to show off her little boy. Especially as gorgeous as my little man is!

The baby boy
Babysitting on the weekends
His first toy
How he liked to play with my hair
His cute little grin.
How he sat like Buddha
The time we spend learning to crawl
The joy of holding an infant
The last weekend with him
The pictures taken of him only weeks before
The horrible call
My mom rushing off to the hospital
The never-ending wait for some news
Beautiful flowers draped in sorrow
The murmur of hushed crying and the feeling of grief
The visit to his mother
How she felt sorry for putting us through pain
Her feeling of blame toward herself
My father's comforting hug
Our feeling of closure
I REMEMBER...MY BABY COUSIN JORDAN.
