Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

October 15th is a day to honor all of our sweet babies who are in Heaven.
Some we have held.
Some we have touched.
Some we have felt in the womb.
Some already had a name.
Some we have seen their sweet profile and heartbeat on an ultrasound.
All are cherished. Missed. Remembered. Loved.
My family and I along with several friends are wearing a special shirt today in honor of Reese.
We also celebrate all of her little friends in Heaven.
We love you and miss you very much, Reese! You will always be our beautiful daughter. You are in our hearts, and we cannot wait to see you and hold you again.


...to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, festive oil instead of mourning, and splendid clothes instead of despair.

Isaiah 61:3

I have been following you since you were pregnant with Reese but have never commented. Your strength and grace is to be admired, and I am so thankful for you sharing how the Lord has worked in yours and your family's life. Thinking of you all today and praising God that sweet reese is with Jesus and that you will be with her again!

I love how Mandy said that we celebrate Reese everyday, but today we also get to remember her friends, too. :-) Such a good thought.

I am thinking about your sweet girl today. I remember her when I see/feel the baby kick or move inside of me, and I also remember her when I play with Dillon. She has opened my eyes to what a wonderful thing this parenthood is, and I try hard not to take a moment for granted.

Love you ~ happy birthday!

Donna said...

Heather said...

Praying for you today and remembering Reese! What a sweet beautiful girl! Wishing she was here but happy she is with Jesus!

Kristin said...

I've been reading your blog since you were pregnant with Reese, but have never commented. I think about you and your sweet little girl all the time. I just recently had my first son just a day after you had Colson, and ever since then I can hardly look at Reese's pictures without tearing up. I continue to pray for you and keep you in my thoughts.

I came to your blog from Hilary's and have just read about your sweet Reese. I am so sorry you had to go through all this, but am so happy for where you are today.

I have four little ones in Heaven by way of miscarriages. Thank God we have the hope of seeing them again one day! Praying for you and your family on this day.

She is lying in Jesus's arms right now. Sheeding tears and praying for you and your family!

PS I am a blogger friend of Heather.

holding you close in my heart today.

BeaDandelion said...

Ohhh my heart breaks. God is amazing and maybe He just couldn't part with some of these little Angels just yet. It will never make the pain easier. <3

Erin said...

I was thinking about you and your sweet little girl yesterday!! What an amazing post. I love the shirts you made and am glad that your family and friends where by your side in wearing them yesterday. Thinking about your family!

Hope you had a good birthday!

Alex and Jill said...

I never get tired of seeing pictures of her. Such a beautiful baby girl. Praying for you guys.

Jennifer said...

this is kind of weird. when i designed shirts for our family team for the March for Babies, the "logo" I made was very similar...a heart, my baby's initials, wings, and the crown too! his name is Aiden, but the other name we were considering for him was Reese. I have a feeling they are pals in heaven.

Blessings to you xoJenn

Hi Katie,

This is my first time commenting on your blog, but I've been following off and on for a while. Thank you for sharing your story so open and honestly. I can't imagine the ache your heart feels for beautiful Reese, but I can only say that you've helped so many other women in similar situations. Jesus has shined through you in the midst of one of your most difficult struggles and He is so glorified in you.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful family with us, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your sweet angel today.

Mrs. BigTime
