Remembering…

 

Today marks one month since the birth of Eisley. I can’t even believe it’s been one month…

Everything in me wishes I could be posting photos of my little girl from her one month photoshoot. Typically one month would be filled with learning every little thing we can about our daughter. Enjoying her every coo and facial expressions and of course sharing them with you.

Instead it’s been one month of inner turmoil, one month of the reality of the loss of our daughter sinking in with each day, one month of letting go of the dreams we had for our Eisley, etc.

This morning I noticed a tweet by a friend on mine. She noted that today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day where we “remember all babies born sleeping or whom we carried but never met, or those we have held but couldn’t take home, or the ones that came home but didn’t stay. ”

Throughout our journey with Eisley, I’ve met or heard of many who’ve walked a similar road as me. One where we’ve lost a child. It breaks my heart that we have that in common. 

When I heard that today was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day, I wanted to write a post recognizing your loss if you’ve lost a child. And if you haven’t (and I pray you never will) to cherish your time with your babies (in the womb or out).

We’ll see you again soon little ones and until then we are holding that hope very near to our hearts.

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will {rest} in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

  1. 7 years ago we lost Trista Grace at 6 weeks of pregnancy. Today just happens to be the birthday of our twins’ due date buddies. We lost Sam & David 6.5 years ago at 7 weeks. At the time these losses were devastating, but we grew so much in our grief and learned to celebrate each day we’re given. Yes I still cry for these precious ones, but as I remember I now can also celebrate the goodness of a loving God.

  2. We have lost three precious babies. We lost our little boy on Sept. 8, 2010 at 7:30 pm, one week before you lost Eisley. I was 15 weeks and 5 days pregnant with him. I have sympathized with your journey in many ways.
    We also lost a baby at 11 weeks on January 3, 2008 and one at 5 1/2 weeks on Sept. 3, 2007. God has taught me more than I can say on this journey of loss. It brings me tremendous peace knowing that I will hold my three precious children in heaven one day!

    1. Oh Tammy, I didn’t realize your lost litte ones. I am so, so sorry. Thank you for sharing. I am thinking about you and Wade and your little girls, who I’m sure were excited at the thought of their brother. I am so sorry.

  3. Hi Jami,
    My name is Michelle. My friend referred me to your blog because I too, recently lost a baby girl. She was born Aug 2, 2010. Her name is Zoe. The road has been unimaginable at times and reading your blog, it is like you are writing my story alongside yours. I have just started reading here and I wanted to thank you for sharing your heart. I too want to be a voice for Zoe and I want to make sure that her life is used to better the world she left behind.
