Mourning into Joy 

I have the honour of being a part of a series called mourning into joy stories started by Sharon McKeeman (@sharonmckeeman on instagram #mourningintojoystories). As I began to write, I realized that there was more I wanted to share than a few sentences on instagram hence this blog post. I feel like sharing my own… Continue reading Mourning into Joy

Lessons at the Royal Gorge.

(The Royal Gorge – photo by Ted) We’re facing some huge mountains and even deep valleys in our lives. (pun intended with this post, but I’m also quite serious) ‘The mountains’ being decisions we’re having to make and ‘the valleys’ representing the areas we have yet to face that we are afraid to, or “haven’t… Continue reading Lessons at the Royal Gorge.

Breakthrough.

 If you’ve ever been in Colorado during the winter season, you know that it can snow one day and melt the next. In fact, it often snows and melts in the same day. True story. And also why I love Colorado: It may snow, but the sun isn’t too far behind. However, with that sunshine means quickly… Continue reading Breakthrough.

The part where I gave up.

Until 2014, I have prided myself in being “adaptive”.  5.5 years ago I had our first baby after what (at the time, before having lost a baby) I felt was the worst birth/labor ever., 14 months later we lost our Eisley-girl, 14 months after that the birth of our surprise/gift Shailo, 28 months later we had… Continue reading The part where I gave up.

Sharing Eisley (on sharing child loss)

This week Chase asked me about Eisley… again. His curious mind, wondering and trying to process things he either vaguely remembers, or things he’s heard and seen. Pictures, memorabilia, even the breakdowns I’ve had (that I can’t say I’m overly proud of). I remember before I had her as the fear of losing her became greater… Continue reading Sharing Eisley (on sharing child loss)

The birth story of Everly Selah Davis.

The birth story of Everly Selah Davis. Though this was my 4th birth, 3rd C-section and 2nd planned C-section… my nerves were still undone just a few hours before the scheduled birth of our precious little girl! Saying goodbye to my kids, though obviously temporary, is still difficult and very bittersweet. I kissed my little guys and… Continue reading The birth story of Everly Selah Davis.

Jami Joann · Life · loss and heartache

anchored in {hope}

This weekend I’ve had a bit of time to process and I was reflecting on this past year. I’m kind of in awe right now, actually. At the beginning of this year, I never would have imagined I’d be doing a counseling school in Amsterdam – to be honest, at that time, I couldn’t even… Continue reading anchored in {hope}

Pregnancy after loss: Where my feet may fail and fear surrounds me.

Above: Little Baby Davis #4, making his/her first appearance on the blog :) I thought it would be a little easier this time around. Being pregnant after loss and after having had another healthy pregnancy. I think at first, I felt it was easier. Maybe it was because even though we had tried for this… Continue reading Pregnancy after loss: Where my feet may fail and fear surrounds me.
