Just a little heartache

I have been procrastinating posting for so long, but today I just needed a place to let my emotions out. It is so hard hearing sweet friends going through the same heartache and pain that we experienced a year and a half ago. There are so many things I wish I could do or say that would make things be better or go away. I just have an immense feeling of gratitude for my loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ whom I have constantly leaned on and put my trust and love in. I know that for much of the pain I cannot do anything for my sweet friend who will bury her little girl in a couple days. But I do know that THEY will be there for her. I can't imagine my life without my sweet Joy and I am so grateful I have the opportunity to see her again. I could not do that without my God. I love my children and my husband so much more than I could ever express. So very grateful.


  1. I recently read a blog post of someone who went through similar experience as you (I don't remember what the baby had specifically). Anyway, it made me think of you guys. Recently, I've been reminded of people close to me who've lost their babies. It's given me a renewed appreciation for my healthy baby--and I take every opportunity I can to enjoy him. Thanks for sharing and I hope you are well. We need to do dinner!

  2. Thank you for inspiration and your wonderful blog. I came across your blog a few days ago after I found out that my baby also has anencephaly. I have had a whirlwind of emotions but I am so grateful for the knowledge of the gospel in my life! I due in feb and will be delivering in Logan. I know you have a busy life but was wondering if you could contact me if I had any questions or concerns. My email is Thank you for your time!
