Capture Your Grief Day 2: Identity

This one is hard for me. I want to talk about Emma and share about her, but today has been a really hard really sad day. Today is Emma's three month heavenly birthday. Its hard to think what my life might be like if my three month old was here with me. She would be reaching milestones, and I would be nervously anticipating taking her to the babysitter as my maternity leave would almost be over. Today the pain is too raw to even put into words. So, instead I share this with you...the most precious ten little toes.

  3. Each time I have seen this picture, it just catches my breath with its beauty. I love you friend, and many times today I said a prayer for you, Britt, your families, and dear Emma.

  4. Sweet little toes.

    I found you through the #CaptureYourGrief hash tag on instagram. I wanted to reach out to you and tell you how sorry I am that your Emma is not here with you. My heart breaks for you because I also lost a baby girl, our firstborn, Caroline. She was stillborn at full term in October 2010. I just want you to know that you're not alone, and that I'm here if you need to talk about anything. I'm sending warm hugs and lifting you up in prayer today. I know anniversaries and special dates are really tough.

  5. Thank you for sharing this precious picture, Sarah. Those of us that love you so much are also sharing your grief (obviously not like you are experiencing it). Pictures of Emma are wonderful. She IS real. As you said yesterday, she is not a fetus, an embryo or anything in the past. She is a baby. She is not a past anything. She is now...she is love. She will always be a huge part of your heart and our hearts. The thing I love about your butterfly analogy is that butterflies wing patterns set up wind currents that affect the air everywhere around the world. So does Emma. ((hugs)).
