    Wow!! What can I say. What a lovely project to have captured. My daughter came early and I was always worried I would loose her but I didn’t. There isn’t a moment to date that I don’t value having a precious daughter to love and cherish. Some woman never get the chance to have their own children so I feel blessed everyday. This was a wonderful read and once again, well done, great post xReplyCancel

    Such beauty from ashes….I remember the incredible loss I felt when my first pregnancy ended without the precious baby I had named and made a place for in my home and heart.  Turning to the Lord was a huge comfort and I remember how He helped me with the grief.  My heart understands the need to talk about the loss and to rejoice in the baby that follows!ReplyCancel
