Did you arrive at the blog today and wonder whether you were at the right place? Yes, the blog has a new title. It’s been long in coming, and I could not allow Jacob’s day to come and go again without doing something about it. While it is true that if some random stranger asks me how many children I have, I answer “six,” it’s mainly because most of the time I reply “seven, but one is in Heaven,” their eyes have glazed over as soon as I say the number (this also usually happens as soon as I say “six”). Or they just don’t care and are ready with their next comeback/question/comment.
But “we are seven,” as the Wordsworth poem goes. We who remain have never forgotten Jacob, and we never will.
Happy 7th birthday, my sweet baby Jacob. Mommy and Daddy love and miss you so much.
