Sometimes I let Marlo take a bag of pennies down to the fountain and have fun tossing them in.

I have wishes of my own. We planned this pregnancy. I was going to waddle around the fair this summer. I was going to deliver in October. I was determined to have all my Christmas decorations up by December in spite of having a toddler and a newborn.

But thinking doesn't make it so. And plans are just plans. They're not guarantees.

I know I can't change things. I know that there was nothing I could have done to make Griffin well. But that's not enough to stop me from wishing I could have.

I know you don't know me, but I used to go to high school with Ann and Amy. We lost our baby boy when I was 20 weeks pregnant. It was the most horrible experience of my life. It's been a year and a half and I'm still not the same. The good news is that God knows and cares and He blessed us with a beautiful baby girl this past Valentine's Day!! Losing our baby was SO hard, but now I can't imagine what life would be like without our little girl. I definitely have somewhat of an idea of how it feels. I don't even know the point of me leaving you a comment, other than to tell you.....it will get easier. We have a family blog that is private, but if you ever wanted to read about our story, you can email me.
