We sent our sweet boy, Matthew Morrow, to be with Jesus around 6 o’clock this evening. After a whirlwind of a wait he came rushing into this world within hours of them breaking my water....didn’t even leave me time for an epidural.
He was born without hands or feet. His little eyelids and ears never made it either. And his nose and chin will forever be unique to him. But boy did he have a strong heart, thick thighs (got those from his momma) and dark hair, lots of it! He was with us for about two hours before he was called home and we held him every minute of his life....and then some!
Matthew, you’ve rocked our worlds. I carried you as long as I could and you will remain in our hearts forever! You’ve changed our lives, the scope of our family, our marriage, and every moment from here on out. Your story will be shared far and wide, I promise you that!
You were simply not made for this world but thank you for sharing it with us for a little bit! I’m rejoicing today, little one, bc I know your running around heaven, healthy and WHOLE, not a single imperfection on your body! I sent Roxie up there for you a few months back bc a boy needs his dog! She loves tennis balls and fetch and hates when people sneak up on her so always let her see you coming! She will give you endless kisses but will refuse to snuggle! Our grandparents are there for you too, I know you’ve already met! Give them a big hug from us!
So save us a spot baby boy and we’ll see you when it’s our time too! Until then, we love you and you’ll never be forgotten, Mom & Dad 💕
