I have been wandering around today just feeling sick. Why was our baby taken away from us. I want her back so bad. I just want my baby...........................I don't understand why all of these other people get to have their precious babies and we are sitting here with empty arms. My heart is broken and I feel like my world has been turned upside down. I don't know if things will ever be normal again. Everyone has been telling me that I need to rest and quit trying to do so much and maybe that is what I should do. I am not one to just lay in the bed all day. I want to heal.............Lord I just need your strength right now. I am hurting so bad. I feel like there is no way I am going to be able to do this. I just want my baby.................... I am supposed to be changing her diapers and rocking her right now. I feel so alone at times. I feel this emptiness and I know it's because she is not here. Lord please calm my heart and give me comfort. I've been sitting in her room.  We have worked so hard on to get it ready and now there it is - all ready for Mamie, and she's not here. AH! I am so angry right now. WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I am going to go soak in the bath. I have made it through another day. It hasn't been such a good day, but I have made it. Thank you Lord for being with me and letting me cry out to you for help. I know Mamie is in your loving arms and I will never question that.


  1. Sis, I know today was especially hard for no specific reason. I wish you didn't feel so alone in this journey, but I know that you do at times. Every way that you feel is okay. You are not being judged on how you grieve, so do just exactly what you need to do and let God carry you. I love you.

  2. you know what, sarah? this entire post is everything that avie & i ask each other all the time. why? how can some women have 2, 3 or kids, how can a 16 year old get pregnant on "accident"? where's MY baby? and, it's sooooo hard to not be jealous of other women with their babies...actually, it's very easy to be jealous...the hard part is trying to push that jealousy aside so that you can somehow manage to say "congratulations". but, you know what? be jealous, be mad, be angry..and, be strong, be brave...any feelings you have are normal. any way you grieve is normal. you do what gets you through the day...staying in bed, sitting in her room, taking a walk, going to the mall...whatever you need to do, do it.

    and, if you need anything, ANYTHING, please e-mail me or call me or whatever! my e-mail is & my cell is 944-1472. i know sometimes you feel alone, but you're not alone. there is strength in numbers & those of us who have been through a loss like this have to stick together!

  3. Sarah,
    I don't know you but found your photography blog a LONG time ago and fell in love with your work. I then found out through reading the prayer requests on kellyskorner about your sweet girl. I have been checking in regularly on the blog to see how you are doing. My heart breaks for you. I pray for you and your family.

  4. Sarah, I have been thru the same thing. I lost my baby girl at 37 weeks and that was 19 years ago. When it first happened it was like a nightmare. My first and only girl. I have 3 boys{18,14,6} I would wake up crying at night thinking I heard a baby crying and that my body had betrayed me. I said all that to tell you to please get some christian counseling and don't stop praying and crying out to God. He loves you and your husband. My heart goes out to you. I willpray for you. If you want to email me back please do so. Jan Sisters in Christ, Jan

  5. Sarah-

    I am a Mom, just like you. I have not lost a baby, but I can certainly identify with the feeling of motherhood. The intense vulnerability. The overwhelming love. The feeling of meeting a calling. So sorry for your loss. I admire you for still. I know that cannot be easy to do. Know that you are not alone. You are prayed for. And held up when you are tired right out from the grief. I am at the end of my 4th pregnancy right now, and unable to sleep. God always brings people to mind to pray for in these last sleepless weeks. You are one of them.

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.
