Our sweet little Matthew Karol went back home to Holy God after three hard days in the NICU. Matthew went from our arms into the arms of his Maker in peace late Wednesday night. It was a very emotional night for us to see him go, but what a glorious place to be going to. Matthew received the Last Rites for the Dying from the Catholic Chaplain. Our perfect little guy was able to receive two Sacraments during his short time with us.
God’s plan for our Little Matthew Karol was already known before we ever even knew about Matthew and God does not ever make mistakes. John and I treasured every moment we got to spend with Matthew. Matthew’s last gift of Mercy to us was when he opened his eyes and looked at John for a minute. It was absolutely touching to see his eyes open. Matthew was a gift to us and we will never forget all of the prayers and notes of encouragement for us throughout this long journey. We thank each one of you who have offered so many prayers along the way. We are certainly held up by your prayers and God’s grace.
