Our Family of Five
Jesse now has two beautiful little sisters! On August 10, 2009, we welcomed Lorelai Ann Maxwell
to our family. She weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces at birth. She is so much like her daddy! On December 16, 2011, our sweet
Lynda Elizabeth Maxwell (Lizzie) was born. She weighed 8 pounds and 2 ounces. She looks a lot like me. Getting to watch them
reach milestones, change, and grow together is so amazing! They have given us reason to smile again and keep going on!
Jesse would be 5 years old now. I cannot believe it has been that long since
we held him close and smelled his sweet skin. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, sometimes with tears and sometimes
with a smile. It is hard not to imagine what he would be like and what he would be doing now if he were here. I love to talk
about him and show off his pictures. Lorelai likes to talk about her brother when she sees the pictures in the house, and
I love that. These moments help me know he was real, he was cherished, and he will always be important. I hope he knows he
was and forever will be loved. I look forward to the day we meet again in our forever home, Heaven.
Thank you all for your love and support!
"To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, And a time to die;
A time to plant, And a time to pluck
what is planted;
A time to kill, And a time to heal;
time to break down, And a time to build up;
A time to weep, And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, And a
time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain, And a time to lose;
A time to keep, And a time to throw
A time to tear, And a time to sew;
to keep silence, And a time to speak;
A time to love, And a time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace."
