Mamie's Due Date

Mamie’s Due Date

Today has already been extremly hard for Taylor and I.  Today was to be Mamie’s due date.  The questions that everyone asks you through your whole pregnancy is here.  And we have no baby here with us.  She has gone to heaven.  I woke up crying harder than I have in a while and couldn’t catch my breath.  I keep replaying everything over and over in my head.  How did this happen to us?  Today is suppose to be an exciting day.  I pray that the Lord will give us strength to get through this day.  I lit a candle for our precious Mamie and plan to let it burn for her all day.  

“Mamie we love you so so much and miss you more than ever.”




Lauren - Sarah, my thoughts and prayers are with you and Taylor today as they are everyday. I have been thinking about you constantly. I'm sure you are wondering when this will get easier. I just know it will. God has a plan for you both and I know you can't understand what it is now but it will reveal itself soon, I'm sure. Take care and my prayers continue...

I know this is not at all how you had planned this exciting day. Praying that God will ease your pain and give you the strength you need to make it today- and for the days to come. Mamie is beautiful and I know God is treasuring every second with her. I am so sorry you can't enjoy every second with her now. I know you will for eternity, but that doesn't help with the right now. Praying for you to get through those for now. Hang in there.

July 13, 2009 - 11:06 amBecky Gordy - Graham and I are thinking of you both today. I'm so sorry. May God be with you guys all the time, but hold you especially close today.

July 13, 2009 - 11:06 amAshley Andrews and Kurt Garland - I think about you each day and pray for your strength. As heart wrenching as it, I watch the slide show of Mamie often so that I do not forget how beautiful she was and how she was the spitting image of her mother with that little butterfly mouth. I am with you in thought and prayer and hope that each day brings you a little more peace.

July 13, 2009 - 11:07 amClark and Carolyn McCarley - Sarah and Taylor, It was nice meeting you all yesterday. We feel your pain, emotions and everthing else you are going through right now. Remembering back when we lost Mary Madison, life just sucked, nothing was fun. But we found strength through prayer, to move forward one day at a time. Please know we are here if you all need anything, feel free to call anytime. We would love to visit sometime. We pray you will have pease and comfort today. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Clark and Carolyn McCarley

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…

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 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.
