I wanted to first thank all of you for your prayers, we couldn't have done ANYTHING without them. We have been praying and prayingthat God would make it clear to us which publishing company to go with to get Justin's Jesus out to the public. We have decided to go with West Bow Publishing. West Bow is a Christian based publishing company that is associated with Thomas Nelson Publishing, (the company that published Heaven Is For Real). We have started the first steps in the publishing process today and the book could be completed as early as Christmas, however, we aren't in any hurry to get it done within 2011. It will for sure be out by May 14, 2012 which would have been Justin's first birthday.
And speaking of Justin's birthday, it is probably the one day I am dreading. Thank God for wonderful friends he has so strategically placed in our lives. My employer has decided to do a "walk" for SIDS afround Justin's first birthday, so we will be able to make the day a celebration, rather than a heartache. I will keep you posted more on the walk as time goes and things fall into place a little bit more, and be sure to look for updates on the publishing process of Justin's Jesus.
It is amazing to me how much God blesses you through some of the hardest trials and times in your life! He reminds me everyday of his promises and his love, what a GREAT God we have!
Psalm 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds
Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted. I am sooooo thankful for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us, especially during this difficult time and also for the comfort he has provided us with Justin's story as well as those who will be comforted by it in the future.
