Far Away Hope

Hope deferred 
makes the heart sick,
 but a longing fulfilled 
is a tree of life.
Proverbs 13:12

He got a new heart and his body is rejecting it.  Now this little heart is sick.  He has struggled all of his five months on earth and his family is also heart sick at this point that the doctors say there is no hope. The family has exhibited an enormous amount of hope through this ordeal and have shown maturity way beyond their young years but the time has come.  They say that when God wants to take him, He will and they don't want to dictate when that will be but the doctors say that today is the day to remove life support.  
their hope is ultimately in a life eternal and are ready for their child to personally meet the Lord either today or whenever He's ready to take him into His arms and eat from the tree found in heaven.
They wait.
