Prayer request for loss of a preemie baby girl

Hi DS community -

My husband and I recently had a baby gir, Abigaile Grace, at 23 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and lost her 10 hours later. We are a Christian family and already can see how God's hand is working for the good through our loss, but after getting through her beautiful memorial service two days ago, I can feel some of the harder grief setting in. I know there will be ups and downs and I just wanted to request prayer that I can go through all the hills and valleys of the grief, and still be an active and involved mother for the two beautiful blessings that we have at home (DD nearly 5 and DS nearly 3). And for our marriage to stay strong and even get stronger, since my husband and I are grieving very differently.

If you are interested in more detail, our story (what I have written of it so far) is on the blog I started - www.abigailegrace.blogspot.com

Blessings to each of you,
Kristy

Oh mama I am very sad to hear of the loss of your sweet baby girl. I will be praying for you and your family. I pray that God will carry you through this dark time and that you find comfort and peace in his name.

She is gorgeous and perfect!
Thank you for sharing Abigaile Grace with us.
