the "other" side

My heart feels the pain that rips through each new family that joins us on the "other" side of this journey. When the Mom and Dad no longer fear the death of their child because they have just lived it.

I'm so sad that we have gained 3 new angel babies this week. 3... They all had Trisomy 18. Please lift their families up in prayer with me...Zoe, Sydney Grace, and Lyla.

And while you are praying for them can you also give my friend Jill and extra one?? Her sweet little girl Lily is thriving and growing (and so cute I just want to kiss her!), but after watching 3 losses this week I'm sure that Jill can use some peace, strength and sleep. And of course Lily could use your prayers for her safety and health as well!

Thank you, Jen. That fear is always with me, but it becomes more real when I see this "other" side. I'd like to think that Lily is invincible, but I know the cold, hard truth.
I don't think I can say enough prayers for you and others who have seen this other side of Trisomy 18.
Love,
Jill
