April 23, 2011

Oh my dear Emmalee...you've been gone from us for 3 years now. I still can't believe it. I have so much to say and I am so tired tonight. We celebrated your life all day today and talked about what we were doing 3 years ago...and we reflected on all the memories we made with you. You are always in our hearts and always on our minds...we miss you sweet baby girl...Heaven was already a wonderful place but now that you are there I long for it even more :) I'll write more later on all that we did today and all the emotions that went into it...but for now I am tired and I got to get ready for bed...tomorrow is Easter...and I can't believe that you get to spend the day with the King of Kings...

I love you...and always will!
Mommy

I stumbled across your blog. I would say that I don't know how I got here, but I know God had His reasons. Emmalee's story is similar to my daughter, Caris. My daughter was born on Jan. 30th of this year and died after 6 days of a congenital heart defect. To this day, even with autopsy, they can not pinpoint exactly what she had. However, we do know that she had a thickened heart wall and her blood could not flow to her lungs and oxygenate her body.

On her sixth and final day of life as they were prepping her for the ECMO machine, her stats dropped and she went to be with Jesus.

I read every single entry in this blog, from the beginning. My heart breaks with you, and my heart rejoices with you because you got to spend 13 beautiful days with your baby girl.

Thank you thank you thank you so much for writing... it has truly helped me today. I know God sent me to your blog. He is good- ALL THE TIME. We also profess that daily, my husband and I.

Thank you again, so much. You are a Godsend.

I too stumbled across your blog. June 14th 2010 I gave birth to our first daughter, but 5 days after that she went Home because she had a congenital lungs defect. It was a hard time for us, especially that we never had chance to hold her in our arms (as the hospital's NICU here is very strict).

God is very good to us through those moments.. He sustained us gently so me and my husband remained strong. 4 months after that I got pregnant again, this time with baby boy. I'm excited to meet him this July, but at the same time I am having some fears too.

Thank you for writing this blog, it means a lot for me.

God bless your family.

I cannot begin to imagine how painful it would be to lose your little ones. Its beautiful how you have still kept them alive in your heart. God bless their little souls. Amen!
