Heidi’s Day

Four years ago my first born entered this world a little too early…

She was called up to heaven and will remain perfect in every way.  For the short moment that she spent on Earth with me, she changed me forever.  She provided her sisters and brother a better chance at life and gave me hope to face the tough days and weeks ahead.  She gave me the motivation to persevere.   

Heidi, I can’t believe that you’re 4 already!  I cannot wait for the day when we are all reunited in heaven for eternity!  I am so blessed to have a big family and YOU as my sweet little angel!


“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes  not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but we is unseen is eternal.”  2 Corinthians 4:17-18

  1. Four years has gone by so quickly and so much has changed. Your sweet green beans will grace my wrist as my reminder of how special they are!

  2. Wow. It's hard to believe that it's been four years already. I'm praying for you these next few weeks as you celebrate the births of your sweet babies!

  4. You know what? It's always some "anonymous" jerk that feels entitled to ask their riveting questions and hide behind the big ole internet to do it. You're repulsive. Didn't your mother teach you that if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say anything at all? Geez. Get a life and leave this poor woman alone.

    "You struggle with this"? Who cares? Who are you to judge THEIR decision to keep all their babies. Do you think they implanted 4 embryos in an attempt to have quadruplets? Do you even know that they went to a reproductive endocrinologist? Do you know that the majority of HOM pregnancies occur from women taking very mild medication such as Clomid prescribed by their OBGYN? You’re full of 2 things – assumptions and shit and news flash – no one likes either.

    I went to a reproductive endocrinologist and I took very mild medication and ended up pregnant with quadruplets. I kept all my babies and guess what, like your friend with 2 healthy 5 year olds; I have 4 healthy 5 year olds. I won't spend the rest of my life mourning my decision to abort 2 of my babies like your friend did. To each his own. I don't judge her, but don't pretend like you could even begin to understand Lauren's struggle through this. She did what she felt was right for her and her family. She is allowed to mourn the death of her children, regardless if YOU feel she is entitled to or not. You are not entitled to take that from her. Get a life.

  5. God Bless you Lauren. Feel free to delete any comments on here that aren't related to lifting up your family, mine included. I just couldn't bite my tongue.

  6. Wow, I love you Jac, whoever you are. I didn't see the comment that was erased, but I am assuming they deserved every bit of your response. ;)

    I'm glad you share these posts about your babies, Lauren. I love hearing about them. I'm a little jealous sometimes that they get to hang out in heaven with Jesus away from all of the troubles of this world... What an incredible moment that will be when you one day get to see them face to face again. Taylor will finally get to meet her angels/big brother and sisters. Wow. I know the hurt never really goes away here on Earth... but in that moment when you do finally get to see them again, the hurt will disappear, and all that will be left is joy. "We fix our eyes on what is unseen..." Thank you for that reminder. :)
