Nostalgia

**If you are visiting here from Comforted by God, welcome! And a big thanks to Carrie for highlighting my blog on hers. If you haven't read her blog, check it out here. She is a beautiful child of God and an amazing writer. I wish I could write the way she does.**

For some reason Maddie has been on my mind so much lately. I thought I would re-tell her story through pictures, I hope you don't mind. If you want to read her whole story click here.

The beginning: 12/27/05 - We're going to have a baby!

Starting to show! (I have a ton of pregnant belly pics but I will hold back and just post 2)

Almost there (one week before she was born)

In labor - look how excited we were. I'll call this picture the "before"

This is in the NICU - my first time holding her. This is the "after"

Our little peanut on her vent

Daddy holding her for the first time. This one just breaks my heart.

Soon after this picture was taken we removed her from the ventilator and took her back to our room where she lived through the night, saw the dawn of a new day and passed away in my arms only 14 hours after she was born. Again if you want to read the whole story go here.

2 years after we lost Madelyn we began the adoption of our son, B. The story of his adoption starts here.

The day were got the long-awaited travel call that B was coming home we were surprised to find out that I was expecting. R's story starts here.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
