Further Developements...

This Photo of Seeker Man, Scooter, Tilly & Snorkie
was taken on Thanksgiving Day 2006.
I love to see the way the little ones
have so much love and enthusiasm for
their big brother.
They have all been very excited about the
prospect of a new baby brother or sister.
that won't be as soon as we had hoped.
Our new baby was not meant to join us
here in this life,
we look forward to meeting her someday...
along with our other baby girl that we
lost to miscarriage about six years ago.
I am doing alright physically...
emotionally is a little tough.
But I look up at those smiling faces
in that photograph at the top of the post,
and just CAN'T feel sorry for myself.
God's Plan ALWAYS trumps My Plan,
and He has been SO Gracious to me that I can
only hand myself over to Him to do His Will.
The kids are doing OK, but we are all sad.
We look forward with the hope that
we will go on to have another baby
(or babies?)
if God wishes us do do so.
Pray for Us, Please.


  1. So sorry to hear about your loss. I know that's hard.
    Prayers are being offered up for you.

  2. I'll pray for you. I wish there was something I could do for you.

  3. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  4. Elizabeth, I am so sorry to hear this. It's never an easy thing.
    You are in our prayers.

  5. Oh, darlin. A Memorare was just sent your way. We know what we know, but the pain still sneaks up and grabs us every so often. Even though I've got kids I wouldn't have, had some of those miscarriages carried to term, I still miss the times I would have had with those babies.

    Some things that helped me: C.S. Lewis' A GRIEF OBSERVED. Writing a letter to the baby. Asking the baby for prayers, especially for his/her siblings. Reminding the other kids that the ones who went ahead are with us whenever we pray as a family. And crying, especially in front of the Tabernacle in a darkened church or chapel. (I remember one particularly bad miscarriage -- it may have been the third consecutive -- our pastor opened the church after regular hours just to let me in; I stayed most of the night, "having it out" with the one who could have saved my baby but didn't; and when I left, I had more peace than almost any other time of my life.)

    Sorry for leaving such a lengthy comment. Think of it as a cyberverbal version of a big, long hug.

  6. I am sorry for your loss. *hugs*

    Yes, feel free to borrow the 10 commandments for Christian blogging!

  7. Oh I am so very sorry. I lost one on 4-4-04. I don't think that date will ever stop making me cry. Thoughts and prayers in you and your family's direction...

  8. I'm so sorry to read about your loss. We will pray for you and your family. God Bless.

  9. You have very beautiful and photogenic children.

    Prayers for you and your family in this difficult time. ((Hugs))

  10. I'm sorry! How did I miss this post? I am so sorry you lost your baby. I'm still missing the one I hoped to have in September of 2007. I feel as if there is a giant hole in our family.


Please leave me your thoughts.

I really do like to hear from you!
I'm just getting the hang of all this
"Bloggy" stuff, but I'll try to get back
to each of you when I can!
