Birth & Burial

Well, we've had a week to grieve the loss of our sweet Jackson and now we have a week to give birth and bury him. It feels like a whole lot more than I'd like to do, but I also know that God's grace and strength will prove sufficient, as it already has.

Here are the details - I am scheduled to be induced tomorrow (Tues) morning. There are no guarantees that it will work quickly - it could take 24 hours. Please pray that it goes as peacefully and easily as possible and that God will take care of every detail (including my fears).

We have planned the burial for Friday morning. It will be a private family service, but we are happy to welcome any other family and friends to our house Friday, 1:00 - 4:00 pm.
If you need the address contact Ed or me.

One question we've been asked about are flowers: they can be sent to our home or to the funeral home: Woodlawn Funeral Home & Cemetery in Houston.
In lieu of flowers, donations can also be made in memory of Jackson Erin Sustala to Show Hope by clicking this link:
Show Hope is a non-profit organization that mobilizes individuals and communities to care for orphans and provide waiting children with families by giving grants to those adopting.

We are all holding up pretty well and are very grateful for all the love, prayers, support, cards, messages, meals and offers to help from SO many!

Please continue to pray for all of us this week.
