Yesterday, I had a special moment with the charge nurse. Leanne walked by me several times during the day and mentioned how every time she saw me I was holding Anna Claire. I told her I was catching up from not being able to see her for 2 days when I was sick. She then asked me if we had any other children. Knowing what these nurses see and experience on a daily basis has made it a bit easier to share our story so I said, "actually no, we have 2 other daughters." I then proceeded to share with her about Allison and Emily and our loss. (You can read our story here and here). She looked at me and showed me the goose bumps on her arms and immediately understood why all I want to do is hold and snuggle her.
I was reminded of how GOOD God is. I was reminded that out of death comes life and that spring will always follow the harsh winter! We couldn't be more thankful for our daughters...all three of them.
