my journey to conceiving, carrying, birthing, exploring adoption, and raising my subsequent children after losing my firstborn after a full term pregnancy, and my second pregnancy after 7 weeks. this is loss, heartbreak, faith, hope, my children, my cherries on top, my joy.

8 more sleeps until I see my new baby. 217 or less until I hold her. i do not know the countdown to seeing my first baby, and i never will until the countdown's over.
I had my dream job, my dream husband, a loving family, awesome church, strong faith.. my children would be the cherries on top.. the recipe for a perfect life. Just when I felt safe, it all came crashing down with the death of my first daughter in 2009, and a miscarriage 8 months later. 18 months to the day of Kathlyn's funeral, our Glory was born. We were reminded that Joy can still be found in life. I love more than I've ever loved, I miss more than I've ever missed.
