On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name
Yesterday morning, March 28, 2012, I delivered our sweet Catherine Della with Reid by my side. She weighed 1 pound, 1 ounce and was 12 inches long. She had my nose and her daddy's lips. We like to think she shared our brown eyes. She had the prettiest, long fingers and toes with tiny fingernails. There was even a little birthmark on top of her head. Our perfect little angel baby.
Reid and I spent some time with her in our room. We looked over her perfect little body in awe that, even if only for a little while, she was ours. We prayed over her, thanking God for graciously allowing us a glimpse of just how much He loves us. I miss her more than I even thought possible, but I have great comfort in knowing that we will see her again one day in Heaven.
I mentioned a while ago that the sonographer took 3D images of the girls at 18 weeks. I thought I'd share the picture of our beautiful Cate.
Thank you all for the many texts and emails you've sent over the past few days. The Lord is sustaining us through this and I know your prayers play a huge role in that. Please pray for continued safety for Mary Grace, Madelyn, and Olivia. And, pray that my body would remain free from any type of infection.
For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; It is I who say to you, "Fear not, I am the one who helps you." Isaiah 41:13
