Jeremiah had his last “goodbye” visit with his bio dad today. T (bio dad) had the visit supervisor relay the following message to Justin: “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much.” The strength and love it must have taken for T to say this leaves me astonished and humbled. My heart is saddened by his loss. Yet, I am so thankful to have such a precious boy as part of my life.
