Mamie's Nameplate

Last week family and some friends met Taylor and I at St. Vincent's for Mamie's nameplate dedication.  Thank you to the women's bible study group for doing this for us.  We are so blessed to have so many caring and wonderful people in our lives. The Chaplain from the hospital came and blessed the nameplate after Taylor and I placed it on the wall.  We asked Lynette, our bereavement nurse, to read the words to "Glory Baby".  It was so special.... We miss our Mamie so much.  Here are some pictures that some friends took.  On our way home that night the sun was setting behind the clouds.  The sky was beautiful and pink.  I decided to get out and take some pictures.  I ended up down at the lake in our neighborhood.  The water was like glass that night.  It was so peaceful... I knew Mamie was there with me.  I ended up sitting one the bench for about an hour.
Here are the words to another beautiful song someone sent me by the group Mercy Me.  
"Jesus Bring the Rain"
 I can count a million times People asking me how I Can praise You with all that  I've gone through The question just amazes me Can circumstances possibly Change who I forever am in You Maybe since my life was changed Long before these rainy days It's never really ever crossed my mind To turn my back on you, oh Lord My only shelter from the storm But instead I draw closer through these times So I pray Bring me joy, bring me peace Bring the chance to be free Bring me anything that brings  You glory And I know there'll  be days When this life brings me pain But if that's what it takes to  praise You Jesus, bring the rain I am yours regardless of the clouds that may  loom above because you are much greater than  my pain you who made a way for me suffering  your destiny so tell me whats a little rain  [1st Chorus] Holy, holy, holy Holy, holy, holy is the lord God almighty is the lord God almighty I'm forever singing  [2nd Chorus 2x] everybody singing  Holy holy holy you are holy  you are holy 
We love you Mamie.

  1. Absolutely beautiful Sarah. What a special tribute to Mamie; I am so thankful that you have had such amazing caretakers throughout. Love you and Taylor...give him a big hug for me!

  2. i guess im just going to be that annoying client that thinks we are best friends. haha.. thats me!!!. but im sure you like hearing the i dont see the need to hold back..

    i really am so impressed with you. you are really finding a way of glorifying God during this horrible horrible time. you have a warm light around you that shines and turns the situation into a peaceful calming secure situation. i am so encouraged by you. you walk so gracefully during all of this. and not many people could.

    and just so you know bc i think it would help you to know how much more i am encouraged in my own spiritual life and personal relationship with jesus by you. it confirms my faith that much more to see you walk through this with such grace and beauty. it gives me a reason to keep on walking the narrow path...

    anyway, just thought you would like to know what i was always helps me.

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.
