All We Need Is Love

I know I have often expressed the worry I have about how much pain Gavin felt. As a mother, I would have taken every ounce of pain he felt onto myself so that he wouldn't have to endure such a physical trial. Today as I was looking at some of Gavin's pictures, I came across this picture of Jason holding Gavin while Grandpa Dave (my dad) rested his hand on Gavin's head. I had the overwhelming feeling that Gavin felt love - and lots of it. I am not naive to the fact that many children in this world are abused, ignored and neglected. I also realize that there may be the possibility that Gavin felt more love in his earthly three months than many children feel in a lifetime - and I am grateful the knowledge that even with the physical trials Gavin endured, he knew he was and continues to be loved by so many people.

I hope this doesn't sound weird, but I never even knew Gavin and I love him so much. You guys are such amazing people, and Gavin is so adorable.
