Remembering Her Birthday: 05/14/09









Dear Olivia,

One month gone by and I miss you terribly. I wish I were still enjoying your little kicks and tumbles, instead of visiting your grave today. Mommy loves you so, so much and is still broken-hearted about not having you here. I can't wait for the day when I get to see you again in your new beautiful body to match your sweet little spirit. Love you, dear daughter.

Becky, thank you for sharing those beautiful photos.
Again, I'm at a lose for words, nothing seems adequate. So I will pray for you and your family. Know that I am here for you.

Thank you for sharing the sweet intimate moments of her birth. Praying for you and thinking of you often and how perfect your Olivia is with Jesus.

On the way to church yesterday morning, Jaedon randomly asked "Is there food in heaven?" I answered with a maybe. There was a pause and then he asked "Where does baby Olivia go to church in heaven?" My response: "she gets to worship Jesus ALL the time!"

We are still thinking of you and praying for you often!

Beautiful, simply beautiful. Still praying.

Lamentations 3:22-23
It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Rebecca,
I am so sorry for your pain, your hurt, your slowly healing heart. I'm just so sorry. So sorry you were asked to give your daughter to Jesus. What a painful request. You have done it beautifully.

I am so honored you were able to read my book. I hope it is helpful as you grieve. I think of you and pray for you this day, as I think of our babies who were born into the arms of Jesus so near to each other. I was in the hospital with Micah, who was born on the 13th of May, a day before little Olivia.

I ache for you, the hurt you feel, the pain you are experiencing each day. I am here if you want to talk, share stories, talk of our babies. They are missed and precious.

Blessings to you sweet mommy of Olivia, sister in Christ.

Rebecca
