    I have not been able to stop thinking about your family. I just had my own little miracle in February (there are only 5 other women in the world with my disease, Cystinosis, who have had successful pregnancies) and my heart breaks for you.

    Please know that even though there are many of us out there who do not personally know your family, we are crying with you and sending you love.

    Our hearts have been with you the last few days. I can't imagine the sorrow you feel. Cohen came here for such a short time, but made a HUGE impact on many.

    Sending prayers your way.

    I am praying so hard for your family. I got so attached to your story and followed all during the pregnancy and afterwards. Cohen touched my heart!

    Thinking about you and praying for you guys constantly! I know we have never met, but I have gotten to know you the past year or so and care so deeply about you guys.

    Thank you for sharing Cohen with us. He will always hold a special place in all our hearts, and touched so so many people in his short time here. Such a special boy.

    I really am so sorry.

    I wish there was something, anything, I could do to make this better for you two. You are an amazing family and Cohen is lucky to have been blessed with you as parents. He will always be your gaurdian angel. I will continue to pray for you all.

  8. says

    I am so, so sorry for your loss. You are both amazing parents and I will continue to pray for both of you and your family. Cohen touched so many lives during the short time he was here, and I know he will continue to do so.

    I just read what happened and my heart breaks for you all! I have been thinking about you all weekend while I was out of town and can not believe what I read this morning! I hope you all are doing as well as you can at this point in your life! I will continue to think of you all through this rough time!

    I just found your blog and I too lost a little girl ~ to a heart defect and other things.

    I am so very sorry. There are no words and I KNOW that these days are like walking in a dream. There are so many things to do all while you are in shock at the loss of your darling little boy.

    I don't know how much support ya'll have (I lived in Houston two years ago ~ hear the accent?) but wanted to let you know there is a lot of amazing and wonderful parents on line that will "get" what you are feeling and going through, because we have been where you are now. Please come visit my site
    http://www.carriedthroughgrief.blogspot.com to find other moms and dads if you need us. I have also joined an amazing new online support group called Grieve Out Loud. You can find them at http://www.grieveoutloud.org.

    I can see such amazing love in your family. I know Cohen felt it. And I am in tears thinking about what ya'll must be doing and going through right now. I wish I could help in some way, so I will pray for you.

  11. says

    I haven't been able to stop thinking about or praying for your family since I read the news about your sweet baby. I hope you find comfort in knowing how many people are praying for you all around the world.

  12. says

    I cannot imagine the pain and sadness you are experiencing. You've been so generous with us (your blog friends) by sharing Cohen's journey and for that we are thankful. While I personally miss Megan's funny and some times serious posts…I understand the time you need to heal. I have been praying a lot for your family and I will continue to do so.

    Much love and prayers,

    Susan

    Dear Megan and Brent,
    I am so terribly sorry about losing precious Cohen on earth; you have been on my mind, in my heart and in my prayers. I am a recent follower carrying a heart baby due in September. I pray you find comfort knowing that your baby boy is in the arms of Jesus. You are a very special couple, you can just tell that from your blog. May God bless you both, especially during this very hard time.

  14. says

    my family has been praying for you guys so much!!!
    there are no words to make this easier but, know that the Lord is with you.
    praying for a peace that passes all of your understanding!!!
    cohen has a special place in all of our hearts!!!

  15. says

    When I first read that Cohen was with Jesus, I wanted to scream Noooooooo! Cohen has touched more lives in his short time with us than many do. Peace, love and prayers being sent to your family.

  16. says

    what an amazing boy to have brought so many strangers to pray for you all! i have not been able to stop thinking of you. still praying~

  17. says

    Thank you for sharing Cohen with us. I have been following your blog for awhile through your pregnancy and I admire your strength. I haven't been able to stop thinking about or praying for your family since I read the news about Cohen. Sending lots of preayers your way.

  18. says

    Praying for you guys and your family- lifting you up to Jesus, that he would hold you in His arms and bring comfort and peace.

    Megan- I found your blog through Kelly's blog and have been keeping up with Cohen's update. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your precious son. What a strong and amazing little boy he is, praying God will use his life to reach others in mighty mighty ways.

    We lost our firstborn son Andrew in July 2008 after he was in the NICU for 10 days. We were so hopeful and prayed so hard when he was in the NICU and really believed God would heal him. It hurt so much when God called him to heaven. But even through our worst nightmare God was there every step of the way carrying us through the valley. He never left.

    Praying God will bring forth beauty from the ashes. To give you treasures in the darkness, and to make all things new.

    love,

    Carolina

    I don't even know what to say that will help ease your pain. I have been following your blog and when I saw that you hadn't blogged in a couple of days….I got scared and my scaredness I see was a reality. I am truly sorry. This happened to our friends last year and I can't even imagine the pain you must be going through. Cling to God during this difficult time. He will always love you and Cohen is being rocked in His arms.

  23. says

    Megan,

    I've been following your blog since before you were pregnant with Cohen. I should have commented sooner.

    I am so sorry for what you're going through. Cohen was a beautiful baby and your love for him over the past months of your pregnancy was a beautiful thing to watch. I cannot imagine what you're going through and I don't know what to say other than I am so sorry.

  26. says

    Praying for your family! I am praying that God will comfort your hearts! I have not been able to stop thinking about your family and I am so sorry you are having to go through this pain! That little boy has touched my heart and so many others!

    You will remain in my prayers, thoughts and heart. I am so incredibly sorry for what you have had to endure, but I know this precious gift touched all of our lives in the short time he was here with us on Earth. I know Cohen is an angel in heaven and looking out over all of your family. My heart is shattered for your loss, Megan & Brent, I thought Cohen would make it through this. I am so saddened and just heart broken, no words can describe, so I cannot imagine how you all feel. I will continue to pray.

    Sending prayers from Switzerland.

  43. says

    Megan & Brent–there are truly no words to help you through your sorrow. But knowing how many lives little Cohen has touched should give you a little reassurance that his life was more meaningful in his short number of days on earth than some lives of years and years ever are. You are in my thoughts and prayers, and may God's love surround you and your family through this time.

  44. says

    I am praying for you both during this unbearable time. Baby Cohen has touch so many lives near and far. I am so so sorry for your loss!!

  47. says

    I have been a follower of Cohen's precious story, but I've never commented. I hope you will continue to be surrounded with love and prayers in the days to come. I can see that both of you are so loved by so many, just like Cohen always will be! My heart is with yall!

  48. says

  49. says

    I just found out. I am so so sorry. I wish there was something I could do for you. I have been with you on this journey and prayed for Cohen and grew attached just like the rest of your readers. I can't imagine what you must be going through. I hope you know how much love surrounds you right now. Prayers are being sent your way. You will see Cohen again someday.

  50. says

    Oh Megan – I am so so so sorry to learn that Cohen was called to be with our Lord. I was hoping and praying for that not to be. I will continue to pray for you, your husband, and family. Please take care.

    Megan and Brent,

    Nothing I say will help ease the incredible pain and loss you are feeling right now. I hope you both know how much Cohen is loved and he will never be forgotten. We have all come to love him, and you guys, during this pregnancy and I'm just so sorry. We sometimes can't understand why things happen the way they do, and to wonderful people, but I have to trust that God knows best and we will all come to see his reasons someday. I am so sad for you, Brent and your family, but I know that you will always treasure the time you had with Cohen. I am praying for you all, today and everyday.

    Love,
    Angela

  53. says

    Oh Megan, my heart is so full for you and Brent, I am crying alongside of you. I will never understand why God calls such precious lives home sooner than others. I am PRAYING for you and your precious family during such an extraordinarily difficult time.

  54. says

    Megan and Brent, What we all wouldn't do to be able to take away just a small bit of the ache and pain you and your family must be feeling. Away from the computer all weekend, I thought of and prayed for you and Cohen daily. Heartbroken when I came home and read the news. What a blessed little boy to be born to such LOVING and AMAZING parents. Such a small guy but graced the world with such a HUGE impact. May you find comfort and peace during this time. Sending up love and prayers for you, Ashley Paige

  55. says

    I am so very sorry for the loss of little Cohen. My heartaches for both of you because I and my husband have felt that pain as well.

    May the Lord give you strength and comfort and may you treasure the precious moments you had with Cohen.

  56. says

    My heart has been been hurting so much for you guys the past couple of days. I've been praying and praying for you. Thank you for allowing us to "know" Cohen. His life has touched us all. Sending you prayers, love, and peace.

  57. says

    Megan and Brent,
    I am so sorry. I am a firm believer in "If God brings you to it, he will bring you through it".

    There is so much love being left on your blog, "Send Love to Cohen" Facebook page, etc., and I hope our words are a small token of comfort for you all. When my grandfather passed away, my grandma said that what kept her going was the love, support, and care from friends and family. In this time, I can only hope that our love for your family will carry you both.

    I have throughly enjoyed reading about your journey. I have been reading since September and felt close to you when I discovered you (Megan), too, have PCOS. We e-mailed some and you were very helpful in answering my questions about it. I can only hope to continue you to read about your journey, but we all understand and respect any decisions you make about continuing to blog or not.

    Megan and Brent, in this wonderful life, we are given challenges and obstacles. You may hurt like hell, but there will be joy again one day.

    Praying for you guys.

  58. says

    I've been thinking of ya'll all weekend. I've followed silently since before you even announced your pregnancy and know how much you love this child – and I think we all fell in love with the little angel, too.

  59. says

    I can't stop thinking about your family and I am praying for you! I look at my little boy and am thankful for him every day and am reminded to not take anything for granted. Not only do you have the knowledge that others are thinking of you and praying for you, but you are helping people too – like me! Not taking things in our lives for granted and being grateful for all of the blessings we have in our lives. Thanks for sharing your story and lives with so many people and for being such strong and godly people.

  60. says

  67. says

    Brent and Megan my heart is aching for you and your family. I will continue to pray for strength and faith. I read somewhere recently when you can no longer have faith that those around you can stand in the gap and have faith for you. You have so many people doing that, what a testament to the lives you've touched. I read this on another family's blog who just lost a baby boy.

    I'll Lend You A Child- by Edgar Guest

    "I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine," He said.
    For you to love – while he lives
    And mourn for when he's dead.

    It may be six or seven years
    Or twenty-two or three,
    But will you, till I call him back,
    Take care of him for Me?

    He'll bring his smiles to gladden you,
    And should this stay be brief
    You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

    I cannot promise he will stay,
    Since all from earth return,
    But there are lessons taught down there
    I want this child to learn.

    I've looked this world over
    In search for teachers true,
    And from the throngs that crowd
    Life's lanes, I have selected you.

    Now will you give him all your love,
    Nor count the labor vain,
    Nor hate Me when I come to call to
    Take him back again?"

    I fancied that I heard then say,
    "Dear Lord, Thy will be done,
    For all the joy Thy child shall bring,

    The risk of grief we'll run.
    We'll shelter him with tenderness,
    We'll love him while we may,
    And for the happiness we've known
    Forever grateful stay.

    But should the angels call for him
    Much sooner than we've planned,
    We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
    And try to understand."

  68. says

    Take as much time as you need, guys… Sending love and support and am not going anywhere…

    I am so sorry… lots of prayers and hugs…

  69. says

I have been here with you through the whole journey and am SO very sorry for your loss. You and Brent seem like great people who would be amazing parents and definitely deserve a child. Bless you and your family.

    ♥ Danielle

  73. says

    I don't even know what to say to you guys…thinking about and praying for you so often. I am so very sorry for your loss…I just cannot even come close to imagining…I pray you feel the Lord's arms around you tightly always.

    "You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me." Psalm 139:5

    …I believe He will hold you up and help you to stand.

    Cohen's story has been such a blessing to me and to so many others…and I know it will continue to be.

    Much love
