Another Early Morning

WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 2009 AT 6:27AM POSTED IN PRAYERSEDIT I have been waking up very early every morning and I walk around this quiet house wondering what to do. I have found comfort in a hot cup of coffee and my deck. It is so peaceful early in the morning. I just sit and pray to God that He will help us get through this day. I know He is sitting right here with me and I am not alone. I have never felt this close to our Lord ever before. I don’t know how to begin to thank you all for your phone calls, texts, cards, the flowers that are all over our house, the food that has been made by so many loving hands and the emails. Taylor and I are surrounded by nothing but love and we thank you. Every night we get in bed and read over all the cards and emails that have been send to us. The words are encouragement and scripture is so uplifting. Someone said just yesterday that Mamie is not lost, we know exactly where she is. That really grabbed my attention because it is so true. We know she is a little angel looking down on us right now and we will see her again some day. That makes me smile just thinking about it. Yesterday Britney was showing Silas the pictures of Mamie. He pointed at the picture and said “Baby”. Britney said, “Do you know who that baby is Silas?” and he looked up at her without even a pause and said “Mamie” in his sweet little voice. I am crying now just thinking about it. He knows exactly who she is and he never even met her. Thank you all again. Please keep praying. Love, Sarah and Taylor

Caesy - I know that there must be so much sadness and pain in you right now, but your words are so encouraging to me. I can really feel the strength you and Taylor have and I know that you will get through each day only getting stronger and stronger. It is so peaceful to know where Mamie is and that we will all see her one day healthier than ever imagined!

July 2, 2009 - 10:36 amAlice Curtis - Sarah and Taylor, You don't know me, but my in-laws are Cissy's neighbors and Jason and Taylor grew up together. You are in our thoughts and prayers as you cope with your sadness. Your strength is amazing and we are so glad that you shared the beautiful pictures of Mamie. That beautiful little baby girl will live forever in your hearts.

July 2, 2009 - 11:30 amAmy Lasseigne - The stillness of the morning is the most innocent time with God, after that the world tries to get in the way. I belive we are born as little angels - Silas knows... He is probably more connected to her than we can imagine. You, Taylor and the rest of your family are continuously in my heart and on my mind.

July 2, 2009 - 2:25 pmLauren (Wall) Enns - Sarah, I have been praying for you this past week and my heart breaks for ya'll. Know that even though I have not seen you in years and live all the way across the country (Oregon, of all places!) you are thought of and covered in prayer. Know how loved you are, baske in that during this time as it is obvious how loved you are by all. I know there are no words during this time of loss. But I praise Him that you feel closer than ever to Him as you mentioned in your recent post. And I will be praying for your marriage, that you both will cling to the other and not let this tear you apart but only bring you closer to one another and the Lord. Praying.

July 2, 2009 - 6:38 pmAnna Moore - Sarah and Taylor, I know you don't know me but I have been praying for you over the last several days. I am Crystal's future sister-in-law and I spoke with her the morning after Mamie arrived. God has laid this child and your family on my heart, and I want you to know that my heart aches for you. I can't imagine the pain that you are going through right now, but I know a God who understands everything you are feeling. I know He is with you and will continue to comfort you. Turn all your pain over to Him and He will guide you and Taylor through this terrrible tragedy. She was absolutely gorgeous. I know you will rejoice in heaven one day when you see her again. God bless you and your family and know that you are being lifted up to God. Love in Christ, Anna

July 3, 2009 - 9:55 pmKaren - My love and prayers are with you. Just keep leaning on God during this difficult time. Praying for you now in these difficult days.

July 4, 2009 - 6:50 amElaine Justus - Only God could create parental love. It is truly powerful and mysterious. I hear it in your voice and I know it lives within you. With continued prayers for healing, comfort, and tender memories.

July 9, 2009 - 7:55 pmCaroline Crow - I am so inspired by your ability to find comfort in the Lord. I hope you find comfort with Him and each other. I will continue to pray for you.

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
