update

Hi Mamas,

I haven't been on here much, just checking in to say congrats to all of you! I've read a few stories and love seeing all the new "(insert name) is here" posts.

We are doing well. I think that some of the clouds have lifted in the past few weeks. We had Ella's memorial on Aug. 12, the weekend she would have been due. It was beautiful. I spoke at it, we sang some worship songs, my FIL gave a message, and then we released balloons. I'm still sad, incredibly at times, but God is good and He's given me much to be thankful for. I can see some healing happening and I'm grateful. I'm anxiously awaiting our Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep pictures. Can't wait to see her face in some new pics.

We would like to TTC in about 6 months or so. I'd love a rainbow baby.

Blessings to you all!
Shannon

Re: update

I am so glad to hear the update! I am glad that you and your family are doing alright. I know it is REALLY hard. I have thought of you often and prayed for you just as much. I look forward to pictures if you are willing to share. We (your DDC) morn with you and will be eager to hear of a rainbow baby :-)

Re: update

I'd love to share some pics. We took quite a few. I'm waiting (im)patiently for the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep pictures. It was supposed to take 6-8 weeks and we are past 10. I'll upload some after the weekend.

Re: update

Wow! 10 weeks sounds like a REALLY long time! have you called to make sure that they are processing and haven't just forgotten about letting you know they are done?
