Today, 
my heart aches 
with the inexplicable pain 
of what should be, 
yet it rejoices
in what was. 


Minutes old. The only time I would ever hold him without tubes or wires connected.


Happy 2nd Birthday, Joshua. 

Speak his name today. 
Remember him. 
Rejoice in his life. 
Cry with us in our grief.

Remembering Joshua with joy, celebrating Joshua's birth & life, and grieving with you over Joshua's death--but also taking comfort with you in knowing Joshua is whole & healed & with our Savior. But still wishing he was here with you.
