8 weeks

It's been 8 weeks today since Carleigh entered the world before she even got to see it. It's just amazing to me how the time passes. I can picture it all in my head clearly that it seems like it was just yesterday that I was holding her. I remember the feel of her skin when I touched it. Her tiny body next to mine. When I close my eyes and picture it I wish I could open them and she'd be there.

So little. So precious.

I'll forever miss my little girl.

I've been following your blog for a while and pray for you, your family & other families that have lost a child to anencephaly. I just wanted to let you know that Myah's daughter Faith Hope ( passed away today at 93 days old. Hope you can make a post about it to receive more prayers as well. Thanks so much and as always, continue to write on your blog.
♥ Friends in Christ,

It does not seem possible that 8 weeks have passed so quickly. I am sure that can bring a mixture of emotions. Know that we are still lifting you and your family up in our prayers!

Holly, you are so sweet and wonderful to keep in touch with encouragement for other moms who are struggling. I see your name often, just now on Celia's blog.

I've constantly checked on baby Faith Hope and just discovered that she went to heaven today.

I don't know how to comment on Myah's blog but she recently posted her email address:

(FYI, someone prescreens her mail and the negative things are deleted. I know she had some haters awhile back.)

Please pray and encourage as you do so faithfully. I am thankful for your ministry and so very very sorry for your loss. You are "Caring for Carleigh" still...and beautifully.

You need not publish this note. I wanted you to have the news in case you didn't realize what happened. I don't have a blog but if you wish to write me,

Your sister in Christ, Michal Ann

My mother died of breast cancer in 2001 and till this day, I can still picture how she smelled, how soft and warm her skin was, how good it felt to hug her.....Boy do I miss those days!!

It's TRULY amazing all the little things you miss, but how you can remember them so vividly...

My heart goes out to you.
