I wish we had taken more pictures.  I didn't discover until after I developed the film that we hadn't gotten any pictures of me holding Bryan.  The times I held him only Erik and I were in the room and all the pictures taken that day were taken by other family members.  Erik and I were in such shock and were trying to figure out what was happening.  I don't think we realized Bryan wasn't going home with us until the day we left the hospital.  Some days I wish I could go back and do things differently, but having never been through something like this before, I didn't know what I'd want later.  I am glad the nurses at the hospital gave me a lock of his hair and took a picture of his precious face.  I often wonder what he'd look like today and what he'd be doing.

BRYAN ERIK
LANE
DEC. 31, 1996
SON OF ERIK & JULIE


LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME
AND DO NOT HINDER THEM; FOR THE KINGDOM
OF GOD BELONGS TO SUCH AS THESE.
AND HE TOOK THE CHILDREN IN HIS ARMS,
PUT HIS HANDS ON THEM AND BLESSED THEM.

 

I try to make him a new arrangement every year.  It helps me feel like I am doing something for Bryan although I know it's more for me than for him.
