Remembering My Green Beans

And I realize just how beautiful you are and how great your affections are for me
And oh, how he loves us so, 
how he loves us so…

I can’t believe its been two years already since I held my babies.  Today I am celebrating the birth of my Green Beans, Lily, Paige, and Rylan (along with their sister, Heidi).  Sure, its a sad story with a very unfortunate ending to have lost our children prematurely, but I am so grateful that they are a part of my life.  I am able to recognize what a true blessing they are, now that the pain and sadness has faded some.  I am honored to be their mother.  They inspire me to be a better person and to help others.  I thank God for them. 
I never imagined things turning out this way when we first decided to start having children. Not having my babies will always hurt, but I am beginning to see the good that has come from all of this.  I am truly blessed to have them in my life. 
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

  18. I can not believe how the pictures are beautiful! I was so surprised when the girl looked really pictures in 3D ultrasounds! And you're right. This ultrasound is increasingly difficult to actually measure the parts.
