October 15


I'm 31 (again!) today! Oh, good I'm glad we got that out of the way. ; ) We've been having so much fun these past few days, I kept forgetting my birthday was coming up. I love having a birthday in the fall.
These pics aren't great, but I didn't want to carry my camera around so my phone worked. ; )
The most important thing about today though is that it's Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Yesterday at the convention centers my mom, Trish, Shannon, and I wore our shirts in honor of my little girl.

Today I honor Reese.
I'm thinking of all her little friends. I'm hurting for their families on earth. I'm wishing she was in my arms. I'm wondering what it's like to spend every day with Jesus in Heaven. I'm thankful she is our daughter. I'm celebrating the day when we are with her again.

The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart...no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.


Isaiah 57:1

I've said it before, (*heavy sighs, and tears*) but I mourn this loss with you. I have been pregnant 6 times and have 2 live children here with me. When I have seen Reeces pictures it is just so hard to understand. She is just perfect, like she is here still. Thinking of you all...

Katie, I am blog friends with Shannon and I have followed your journey for a long time though I've been too shy to comment :) Reese is always in my thoughts when I think of all of the beautiful babies that were called home early to be with Jesus.

I love the pictures of you all wearing your shirts! You're so lucky to have such a great support system.

Happy Birthday!

We went to see Courageous last night. Such a great, great movie. I couldn't help but think of you during the parts where they talked about families who have lost children. You and Jason and in our thoughts daily, and there isn't a day that goes by when I don't think about Reese in some way during my moments with the boys. Thank you for your witness- you are an incredible woman and Reese is such a lucky girl to have such an incredible mommy!

Alex and Jill said...

Happy Birthday, sweet girl!

Was thinking of you when someone told me it was Infant Loss and Rememberance Day. What a comfort to know she's with Jesus and you'll see her again.

Kelley said...

Hey you! Happy Birthday, and happy honoring Reese day. What a sweet gift you have been given in her, and what a sweet gift she has been given in Him. Love that verse. Hold on to that truth, because, after all, He is faithful! Love you! (am bummed that I'm not seeing you right now, but love you still!) and as always, praying for you...

Nicole Rodriguez said...

Happy birthday! Mine is coming up in a couple of days too. I am celebrating the 9th anniversary of my 29th birthday lol. I think of Reese often. I have been following your blog for about a year. As a former nursery nurse and new mom your story has touched my heart. You have a precious family.

Tricia said...

Just thinking of you all and wanted to let you know. Please know that your faith is a huge inspiration to me.
