Seven years ago today our first child was born in heaven. Seven long years. This year has been harder than some of the others. I don’t know why, but it has. This year we felt the need to do more than just acknowledge our loss to each other through little notes. So this year we did what felt right to us. John and I got away for a few hours to honor our son in a special way. I will share more on that tomorrow, as tonight I am going to just go be with my husband.
Thank you to all who chose to honor our son by lighting a candle for his 7th birthday. I can’t tell you what it did for my heart to see pictures of candles all over instagram and facebook – all for our little one. You can still join in if you would like.

I really don’t know what else to say tonight except that I miss my baby and I wish he was here tonight, but thankful that I know Who holds him.
