Surrounded by Love

When we found out Teresa's soul was with Our Lord's, we knew it would only be a matter of time before my body began to release hers.

We did not know quite what to expect, but were told it would very similar to a heavy period due to the short gestational time; only 8 weeks.

However, we were to be given a gift.

We knew the process was beginning on Monday, the 15th, but on Tuesday morning my waters broke. Shortly thereafter I delivered Teresa in our home with my husband nearby.

We were given the gift to see and hold our baby.

So small, so precious. Thank You, Lord.

In this time afterwards, there is physical healing to undertake; there is much emotional and spiritual pain to offer to Him and pray for comfort.

But, we have been surrounded by love. Surrounded and lifted up by countless prayers, little acts of kindness, moments of generosity, kisses blown to heaven by Pearl for her baby sister, resting in the embrace of each other, and turning our hearts to His Most Sacred Heart.

Thank you for your prayers, they are so very much appreciated.
