Sometimes other people just say it better than I can...

Sometimes the greatest miracles come 
when God changes us and gives us joy in Him, 
even though our prayers aren’t answered 
the way we prayed they would be.

It has arrived.
Amelia's birthday week is here.
I can hardly believe it will be a year this Thursday
since we said hello... and goodbye.
I have "watched" several of my baby loss mommy friends navigate their way through the first birthday of their precious babies.
I hurt for them as they reflected, grieved and expressed their love and devotion for their babies as they passed this milestone.
I knew someday soon I would be standing where they were,
grieving as they had done,
celebrating as they were,
but I don't think I ever really processed 
just how much it would hurt,
to be standing here
one year later.

Miss you so much baby girl...

Praying for you during this time of grieving for Amelia and waiting for Sam. May you feel God's arms holding you close.
