three months without him here.

It's been three months since....


 I saw this face..





Prayed this hard....



Kissed these cheeks....



And held this miracle in my arms...






Oh, I miss him more every day.

  4. Beautiful Baby!!! I have been following your story since Luke was born. I am so sorry for your loss, and think of you often. Makes me squeeze my little guy a little tighter.

  6. so as my husband and I read this post, together, tears began to flow down our faces...We want you to know that we think of you with each passing day, not only do we think of you, we earnestly pray for the Lord to heal your broken hearts and lost dreams.....that somehow He will restore and give you both your hearts desires.....As we share in, looking at the picture of you standing over your sweet baby, with your hands raised to an almighty God, begging for healing and then the outcome is so much different than what you prayed, It's like we can feel your pain but at the same time we can feel the love of that picture...The love of 2 parents that is longing for the day to be with him again in Heaven. I will say that Heaven holds even more a special place in your heart now, knowing that's where Luke is today....So as I look into the eyes of my sweet boy, I can honestly say that James and I stood over that same little warmer where you and Benson stood, let me just say that it was in the exact same room as Luke and prayed just as hard as you both did, We invisioned every single thing that you both have had to experience right down to the very place you laid your sweet boy to rest, beside a very special grandparent grandparents...I have kept all this to myself because I didn't exactly know how to tell you all of this...We felt all those same things that you all were faced with....I can't justify why that didn't happen to us and to you guys it did....But I do know that our boys have touched so many lives through their suffering and sickness and have brought many to the saving knowledge of Jesus....it's all in His perfect plan for our lives....We just wanted you to know that we too feel the pain of your loss and as we cling to our sweet boy, we understand so much more those little blessings that sometimes are taken for granted....just like the song you shared Goodnight Moon will find the Mouse.....That's one of Jaden's favorite books that we read to him and to think that you never got to read that book to sweet Luke overflows my heart with such saddness....In a sense, we truly know that the LORD is THE ALL TIME FAVORITE storyteller in Heaven, but just those litte things that we do here on the earth as parents, I, WE will never take for granted.......hope you understand our hearts.....we truly have drawn closer to the Lord through your suffering and ours as well......

  7. Yes certainly a miracle in your arms. This has to be the most beautiful touching and heartbreaking photo I have ever seen. Thank you for being so honest through all of this. The momma and grandma in me would just love to put my arms around you and tell you it will be ok. When our daughter and son in law a baby to misscarraige you KNOW in your head it he is ok But oh your heart wants so much to have them here. Our daughter still struggles at times. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

  8. Luke is the prettiest baby I've ever seen...and certainly the most beautiful boy Heaven has ever let enter. Feel special about that. His future brothers and sisters have a lot to live up to :) Love you all & praying continually.

  10. I just stumbled onto your blog from A Step Into My Life. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and heart-wrenching at the same time. Your story and your honesty are a true testimony. Thank you for my wake up call today. I was sitting here having just yelled at my 3 healthy children for fighting and "getting on my nerve". Thank you for reminding me that their lives are so precious and how truly blessed I am to have him here to fight with each other. I pray that God's continuous loving and healing hand touches your hearts and continues to repair the loss you feel.
