For Leah


I have never shared this with anyone before, it was mine. When we had our miscarriage last year Greg got me this little guy to remind me to hang in there. There was more in store for us. We had hope for our future, now matter how bleak things seemed at the time. Life just didn't seem fair. My sister gave birth to her son the same day I was losing our little one that had just came to be. What a long summer it was for us last year, babies everywhere, and Kristy I won't lie, when you announced you were pregnant last summer I broke down and cried.(You know how happy I was for you, and you of all people know how hard it is when you want to be happy for someone and at the same time all you want is your baby) It just never seemed like we would get pregnant again, and I was starting to question what God had in store for us. Now Fionn is here, and he steals my heart everyday, but there is one corner that is already occupied. We never got to meet you sweet baby, but we still keep you close!
Leah, you sounded desolate tonight...remember you are never alone and God does have more in store for both of you! Be strong!
**For the rest of my faithful blog followers, Leah could use all the prayer we can give her right now. You can read more of her story on her blog An Unfinished Life

That's really beautiful - the figurine and poem, that is. I remember when you miscarried and how sad I felt for you both. I think I may even remember being in church shortly after it happened and seeing you, but didn't quite know what to say. I'm so glad that you were able to have Fionn - I can see that he's brought so much joy into your lives. Children are such a blessing and something to never take for granted.

One more thing I forgot to add... I had no idea that your sister gave birth the same time you were losing your precious baby. I can't even imagine what that must have felt like for you & Greg. I'm sure your sister felt terrible too. How hard that must have been for all of you. I'm so sorry.

Praying for Leah.
