We didn't Call Again

We are really struggling with this. Funny, considering we've done the hardest things already: delivered him, held him, lost him, planned a memorial for him, called the funeral home to make his cremation arrangements, wrote an obituary for him, and cried and cried and cried for him.

I know that we need to call the funeral home to pick Cole up. But we just can't yet. I don't think this is terribly uncommon, because when we were making the arrangements a few weeks ago, the director told us that if we needed time, we had until Christmas to pick him up. I remember thinking, "I will be there the day you tell me he's ready!" But I didn't realize how hard this would be.

0ur plan, just like everyday since October 3, is to call today and find out if we can pick him up. I'm feeling like today is going to be the day! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers!

**We've received such lovely emails and phone calls asking us if we need any help in picking him up. We soooo appreciate that. But we need to do this. However hard, this is our burden and privilege to bear.**
