On Saturday, October 23rd, we visited the National Memorial for the Unborn in Chattanooga, TN. We visited NMU in 2008 and in 2009 and have pretty much decided that it is an annual trip for us. We have a plaque at NMU for Jordan that we placed in 2008.
This year my parents went with us. We had also planned to meet up with some fellow loss families like we did the previous year but it didn't work out this year. Hopefully, next year we will be able to meet up.
Below are just a few pictures from our visit. You can click the links above to see pictures from our previous visits. They had rearranged some things from our last visit and even got a beautiful stained glass window placed. My items that I had put there in 2008 were still there and it was nice to see.
NMU is simply an amazing place. It may not hold a lot of meaning to other people but for me it does. Going to NMU is like going to the cemetery for Carleigh only this is the place I go for Jordan. It is peaceful and the story behind how this place came to be is definitely from God. I got a little teary-eyed a couple times as I thought of Jordan and how much I missed our baby that never got to be. I think the moment that meant the most to me was when my dad came over and hugged me. He didn't say anything but he didn't have to. His embrace said it all.
