Unfortunately, there have been mommies before me
that have had to face saying
to their precious babies
in what seems the same breath.
Fortunately, those mommies (and daddies)
have opened their hearts and arms to us
as we face
One such mother shared with me that her family had gone to
Build A Bear and made each sibling a bear
containing a recording of their baby's heartbeat.
Today we made the trip to Build A Bear,
Amelia's recorded heartbeat in hand,
and made two stuffed animals
one for Noah
and one for Mommy.
Noah and Daddy named his fishing bear
Mackerel "Mac" the Monkey.
My bear is named the only name that came to mind,
In 12 hours we will finally meet
our little Amelia.
Only God knows how much time we will have together.
We are in constant prayer,
knowing in full, He will take care of it all.
A familiar verse shared with me today,
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
