Happy 10 Months

Happy Birthday Baby Girl! I can't believe today that you would have been 10 months old! I know you're going to have a real special birthday today...especially since your brothers are with you to celebrate! That must have been one reason God wanted them on Sunday...for you! We miss you guys so much...more than words can even express. Our hearts ache and we cry for you, but don't worry about us...we will be fine. We know you're in a great place...we can't wait to celebrate all your birthdays with you...together...one big happy family! Now be nice to your little brothers...they are pretty little! But I do have feeling that they will give you a run for your money! Daddy said he could just picture you last night...all three of you snuggled up together...I like that thought. Now make sure you tell God that we need more sibling for you three...but make sure he knows we want to keep them down here on earth! We'll let them join you (and us) when they are old and gray! Again...Happy Birthday Emmalee. I'm so glad to be your mommy!

Ali, this is absolutely beautiful. I was crying at work when I read it. :) I feel like there's not much to rejoice about right now, but knowing those three precious babies are together is such a comforting thought.

My, how much can happen in 10 months time, huh?

What a beautiful letter. I'm at a loss for words. I haven't stopped crying for you since Annette told me the news on Sunday. We will be praying for you tonight at Bible study. To God be the glory!

You are amazing in your strength and love for the Lord. I strive to have just a small portion of your abounding faith. Your "word pictures" about your three little ones left me in tears and brought me to my knees in prayer for your family. I believe God does have a wonderful plan for you....the journey there just seems long right now. May God "hold you in the palm of His hand" during this time.

Happy 10 months, beautiful girl. I know you will take such good care of your little brothers.

Ali, I am just amazed at your ability to write such a beautiful letter to your daughter at a time like this. You are such a wonderful mother. I pray that God will bless you and Jon with more children in the future and that right now He will give you the comfort and strength that only He can provide. Praying for you all!

Ali and Jon,

I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said. I don't have any answers - I only know that you belong to the One who is with your babies and one day He will also hold you. May our loving God bring comfort to your souls. I love you - you are precious!
