Day 2 ~ Capture Your Grief ~ Before Loss Self-Portrait

Day 2 of Capture Your Grief has us sharing a picture of ourselves before the loss of our children.

The picture below was taken in October 2002 at a Halloween party. It is of me and my sister. It was before I found out I was pregnant with Jordan but at the time I was already pregnant. I never would have imagined I would be in an unplanned pregnancy or face a choice I never thought I would make.

This picture was taken December 20, 2008 when I was 23 weeks pregnant with Carleigh. It was just 5 days after we received her fatal diagnosis. I know I look ridiculously happy for getting such devastating news but we were in Hawaii for a family vacation we had planned for 3 years. I left things behind to deal with when we got back. I needed that time away and it really did help me. I came back with a better outlook on things and I felt more ready to face the road that was ahead of us.

Beautiful pictures of you and your sister. I admire the strength in your smile after receiving Carleigh's fatal diagnosis.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
