One year ago...


we checked into the hospital knowing we wouldn't be bringing you home

the nurse delivered you with tears in her eyes

we dressed you in the tiniest clothes that were still too big

we marvelled at your little toes although we'd never see them move.

We love and miss you.

our very little boy...I thought about him, (and you and Mark) all day yesterday and I'm doing the same today. It doesn't seem like a full year. I miss and love him.

We think of Baby Griffin often with sadness for what could not be. We love you all so much and pray that God will comfort you today.

I don't think at the time (as heartbroken as I was) that I could even begin to grasp the magnitude of this loss and what you went (and are still going) through. He will always be a part of our family.

I think of Baby Griffin So much and what a special special little boy. God had greater plans for this little one and how lucky to have you as a mommy. You are a very strong women and I admire your strength. I love you guys very much and miss you SO much. I'm so greatful that I could be there for you during that tough time, and It was Perfect that I found his charm. Griffin will always be thought of greatly and missed so much. I love you Aunt Erin and I love you Baby Griffin.

This was beautiful. I hope you don't mind that I check in once in a while. I'm so happy that this year will be filled with the happiness of two little boys who undoubtedly are playing with their big brother, Griffin, up in heaven right now.
