On August 4, 2010 our hearts broke as we heard the Dr. say "she has anencephaly...these babies don't live" at our 19 wk ultrasound. The Dr. is wrong. Our precious daughter's time on earth may be short, but she will live for eternity with our Lord in heaven. During the few months we have her here with us, we intend to make the most of every second of it. Our hope is that she will leave behind more than a few short memories, but that she will leave a legacy of what it means to hope in Jesus.
I keep forgetting to blog this, but when I showed up last Friday to visit Rachel, I found a present behind her. (amongst some other gifts that have been left)
It's a journal and pens that my mom left. It's in a plastic bag in a basket. The note says feel free to leave your thoughts & prayers. If you visit, we would love to know it... The bag also has some candy in it...that's not for you, so don't take (sorry) Nana left it for the kids...and boy were they happy! Especially Sam cause he's not allergic to what she left. He is getting old enough to know that the other kids get to have lots of stuff he can't and it's getting hard. (for all parties involved...although I don't mind eating the chocolate he can't :o) ) Thanks mom for making sure I didn't have to deal with any tantrums at the cemetery :o) and for visiting our precious daughter. There's a reason she's named after you.
