I love newborns. I especially love them when they are sleeping and wearing hats. Seriously, is there anything sweeter. I think not.
Are you ready to fall in love?
This post is dedicated to all mommies who have had babies born sleeping, past shortly after birth, or they never got to meet. I had a miscarriage two years ago, today. I feel so much for moms who have lost a child. My husband and I always wanted a large family and we were so blessed to have already had 3 perfectly healthy pregnancies ending in the birth of perfectly healthy children. When I got pregnant with #4 I was really sick for weeks, then I got feeling a little better and then, at about 7 weeks along, I lost the baby. It broke my heart. It still breaks my heart. From the moment I found out I was pregnant I could see my baby in my mind. I could imagine what it would be like to hold her close. I had plans for how her nursery would look and what we would name her (I was hoping for a girl). I think (especially for someone who is already a mom) the moment you find out your are pregnant you are already in love. At least that is how it is for me. I can't image the pain of women who have to endure many miscarriages in hopes of bringing a sweet baby safely into this world.
Shortly after the miscarriage, the next month, I got pregnant with my sweet baby Bryce. He has been such a blessing and a joy in our lives and I know that because of the love of my Heavenly Father and His plan no child ever has to be truly gone. Our sweet babies will be with us again someday.
