Tho I have never met you or anyone in your family, I have been following your blog since dear sweet Ivy came into your world. I have prayed for her all these past years. I am so sad that she is no longer here, yet, so happy that she is with her Creator. God Bless you and your family.

Of course I was shocked with the news of Ivy's graduation from this world and entrance into Heaven where her heart will work perfectly. And I cried for a darling little girl I have never met. And for the mother, father, sisters and brother left behind.
The timing of her Home-going is amazing. As you bring another daughter into your family, one has preceded you into Heaven. And the wonder that Ivy left while being so close to her daddy and little sister. Could it have been better for Ivy? As you said- no machines, strangers, prolonged pain and more. Just being transferred from this world to the next. Imagine the surprise, wonder and relief it all was for Ivy!
May God's Spirit be your true comfort and peace in the coming days and months.

I have no words except to say I am so very, very sorry and pray that peace and comfort be given to your family in the coming months. Sweet, sweet Ivy.

I am broken-hearted at the news of Ivy's passing. I have followed this wonderful and amazing family since they brought Lexi home. I am praying for peace and comfort that only Jesus can provide at this most difficult time. I know Ivy Joy is now running and playing with a perfect heart in heaven.

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

I am so incredibly sorry! I wish I had something more eloquent to share. Truly, I am so so sorry for your loss. I've read your blog since your early days with Lexie and pop on now and then to quietly check in. I cannot imagine all your family is going through or the tsunami of emotions being in China. Please know that a stranger in NY is sending y'all love and thoughts for peace and healing and love.




Nancy Gugino said...

I am so sorry for your loss. I too have two beautiful chinese daughters and a Cambodian as well. So amazing they are. I know God has you and I am thankful for your faith but I also know it does not take away the pain. I am praying over your all, peace, joy, and overwhelming love. God is and will continue to be with you I do know this! Please let me know if I can help in any way but also know myself and many are praying an with you in spirit! Much love!!!

I have been reading your blog since Lexi joined your family, as we too have a daughter from Hunan Province, and a son with a chd. We are devastated to read that Ivy Joy - such a joyful girl - was taken so soon. We are sad she didn't get to meet her new sister... but her positive vibes will surely be present in your family, Always and forever, in the good times and the hard times.
As your family is now working very hard to comfort each other and to find a way to cope with mixed emotions, we wish that Ivy's strength will help you all along.
Blessings from Belgium and thanks for sharing your journey xxxx
Jan & Terry

Words can never really adequately express my sorrow for what you must be going through. I am so very very sorry. I have followed your journey for a long time and have 'seen' the love Ivy gave and received from her family. She was an angel on earth and now she is an angel in Heaven. Please remember this: on warm sunny days, look up to the Heavens, feel the warmth of the sun on your face--this is Ivy reaching down to hug you. She is ok...playing with the little ones in Heaven with Jesus reading them stories. She is healed and is now watching over you. Hugs.

Prayers from a follower from Birmingham, AL. Ivy Joy, brought 'JOY' to my heart each time I clicked on your blog. Thank YOU, for letting us know her also. Your family is so beautiful and you are such special people to allow all of us to share in the Love that you spread. God Bless You Always!

My condolences to you and your family. Have been truly blessed by her courage. Heaven has gained a precious life. Eternity belongs to her. Love Debra.

Oh Mary, I am so very, very sorry! My heart is broken for you to hear of Ivy's Homecoming yet at the same time thankful that your sweet fighter will need to fight no longer. Praying for all of you as you adjust to so much at the same time! Welcoming home your sweet Charlotte while learning to take one step at a time with such a great loss as your precious Ivy.

Please know you are being lifted up in prayer often. You are loved, supported and prayed for.


Terri & Gary said...

I am just now seeing this and still in shock.

I am so glad you have Charlotte, but also grieving your loss. Ivy's gain is immeasurable, but it doesn't discount your loss here.
