I am so saddened to hear of Zoey's passing. I truly loved seeing her pictures with her Mama and Daddy and hearing you sing Jesus Loves Me made me tear up. She is a beautiful angel sitting in Heaven, watching her family from above. Sending you comfort, prayers and hugs from Texas.

I am so sorry for your great loss....what a precious little lamb Zoey is, now in Jesus arms, held tightly. So thankful she heard a momma's voice and felt your arms, that smile in the pics tell of her joy....Tears for your family, prayers as you grieve your daughter....She now runs with Jesus.

I am so sad to hear of Zoey leaving this earth...Prayers for you all.

Katie said...

I am absolutely in tears and shock. I can't even imagine how you must be feeling... having held your sweet girl in your arms not so long ago... I wish I had some wise words to offer you but I have nothing but prayers and hugs because this is a pain beyond words. I'm so sorry. Hard as it is though, I'm glad she got to know your love before she went to be with Jesus. You gave her a gift that no one else would.

Such sad news to hear. I'm glad Zoey knew that she was loved. Peace and comfort to you all.

Dear Winslow family, you do not know me but I wanted to extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious Zoey. My heart aches for you--but rejoices that she is now whole and free, smiling with her Father in Heaven and secure in the knowledge that she was chosen and loved by her forever family here on earth! May He hold you close this night and always...

I am so sorry for her loss! God bless her and your family! (But is it really true? Maybe the orphanage faked the documents, stopped the adoption or something?? Unbelievable! ...)

Marcia said...

Dearest Mary and family, I'm so very sorry for the loss of Zoey. I think God saved her as long as he did so she could meet you and be loved by you and your family. I pray for your hearts to be at peace with God's decisions, knowing full well that they are the hardest ones to accept when it come to our children. God bless you and keep you close through the coming days, weeks, and months. Love you!

Marcia said...

Dear Mary, I'm so very sorry for the loss of Zoey! I believe God kept her here this long so she could meet you and be loved by you and your very special family. May God carry you through the coming days, weeks and months as you come to terms with this great loss. We love you.

Julia said...

Every since I saw your sweet Zoey I have been praying. I am so grateful that the Lord preserved her so that she could know on this earth what love felt like. I am so sorry that she wasn't able to thrive in your arms. But we rest in the knowledge that she is now whole. A child of the King. Running free. So grateful that there is more to this life. Praying for you. Praying that God would fill you with peace in your sorrow.

Kathy said...

My heart hurts with you and your family! Your sweet little girl was such a sweetie. With tears in my eyes I will hold you up in prayer.

I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our Bulgarian son just one week before our first trip. That trip one to see just one little boy instead of the planned two was exhausting and mixed with grief. I am so glad you got to hold your little lady.

Winslow family, we love you. I am so sorry to hear about your loss.

Thank you, Jesus, for this family for their willingness to travel to a world away to do Your will, to love Zoey and to bring to light the need for more willing souls like them to love the orphans in Your name. Please let the life and loss of Zoey on earth, be a light to shine on the need for more adoptive families. Bless the Winslow's with their memories of Zoey and their pursuit to bring Jeremiah home. πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

My dear friends. I am so sorry! I know all things are set in order by our precious Saviour, but they can be hard. We love you and are praying for your hearts and healing!!

I didn't know you before now, and I don't know your story beyond what I've just read. But I am a friend of Shelley Bedford and knew that "someone" had passed. I then saw Amanda Unroe's post this morning with a link to your blog. My heart goes out to you, my prayers to you and your family as you mourn her passing and rejoice at her Homecoming to our Savior. I hope you don't mind, I have shared your story on our family page to invite others to pray for you, for the children still waiting, and for their own role in being the one to step out and say "It is me! I will go! You have IMMEASURABLE value to me, and I will do anything to take care of you!!" You have done that, and continue to do it. God bless you and your family.
You can ask Amanda or Shelley for the link to my post if you would like it. It is on my family FB page.

I've been following your blog and wanted to tell you that my husband and I would be praying for you all.
God bless your sweet hearts that were wide open to this little sweet girl Zoey. Jesus said what you have done for the least of these-you have done unto Him. Your time and your love lives on in Zoey even though you have to wait to see her again. I'm so very sorry for your loss. God bless you...

Prayers from our home to you & your family.

The Mac's House said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Sweet Zoey was held and God knew to let her live long enough to feel the true love of a mother before taking her home. The smile on her face could light up the world. May you all find peace, God bless you.

Ruth Gossner said...

Oh Glenn and Mary... when I read the news of your loss on Adeye's blog, what kept going through my head was "Lord have mercy. Oh, Lord have mercy on them. Lord have mercy."
While I do not know your specific pain, I do know deep pain, and I know that His mercy will continue to flow. As others have said, I do not have words, and I know that words are not what you need anyway. So I offer a cyber-hug from a stranger, a sister-in-Christ you've never met, for whatever comfort it may bring. *hug*
Lord have mercy on the Winslows in their grief - wrap them tight in your arms, since mine won't reach.
~Ruth

Mary I cannot tell you how sorry I am for your great loss or how sad I am for you and for the world to have lost such an angel as your little one. She will serve as an ambassador for waiting orphans forever, to remind people that these little ones need us so desperately. Much love and many prayers are sent to you and your family. xoxoxoxo

I've been trying to think of what to say since last night, but there are just no words sufficient for this devastating loss. Zoey is a precious soul and I'm glad she was able to know love for a fleeting moment on earth and I'm so sorry for your family's loss. Prayers!

Nicole said...

I heard about your adoption story from the "No Greater Joy" blog. I am so very sorry for the loss of your daughter Zoey. I know she was very much loved and wanted as part of your family. I hope it is a comfort to you that she is now in the arms of Jesus.

Jolene said...

You have my deepest condolences and prayers. Zoey had to most stunning smile and it is with joy that we know she is smiling at our Lord. My heart is broken for your family but I am so, so glad she was loved so well!
