How do you let go of a child? You don't.
You hand them over.

[Into the protective arms of our loving God]

“What is going to happen to my child? The child didn’t get baptized, your faith spoke for this child. Baptism for this child was only delayed by time. Your faith suffices. The waters of your womb — were they not the waters of life for this child? Look at your tears. Are they not like the waters of baptism? Do not fear this. God’s ability to love is greater than our fears. Surrender everything to God.”
-St. Bernard of Clairvaux
