Six Months

I feel like I blinked and now the babies are six months old!

They are such a joy, and we are having so much fun!   They were definitely worth the wait.  They have been really good, happy babies, and I am so grateful!

I try to take pictures on their "birthday" each month- so here is a long overdue update:

One month:

Two months:

Three months:

Four months:

Five months:

Six months:

Shortly after we lost Thomas, I became friends with a woman in Atlanta who had lost her son to congenital heart disease, too.  She has been, and still is, a source of wisdom and encouragement to me! I remember telling her how helpful it was to see someone "on the other side" of grief who was doing ok.  She responded by saying they were "so much better than ok." It was hard to even imagine that at the time.  I know several people who have lost babies recently, and I hope our story can be an encouragement to them as well.    By the grace of God, we are also so much better than ok!

"I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him.  Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit." 
Romans 15:13 NLT

  1. Melissa, since losing Owen, you have been by far the MOST encouraging person for me. And I've been surrounded by a lot of encouraging people. You've been there and you know the pain and grief, you're real, and you have offered so much wisdom. I love to see you so happy with your sweet babies. It gives me hope! Thank you!!
