Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

How to deal

Over the last few years I have had way too much experience with grief. I have been the one grieving and the one struggling to get up each day. I have often felt like I could write a manual on how to deal with me and others who are grieving but I came across this blog today and the author did it for me. Wanted to share this with all of you and thank you for bearing with me in my grief over these last few years.

Just click here to read. I have to say I agree with most, if not all, of what she has written. Obviously I have a bit of a different experience than her since Alivia was 2 and Griffin a month but other than that we have so much in commen.

Thank you to everyone who wrote notes to Griffin. Who knows if they will even get to him but it is worth a shot. I will hopefully have all of the printed tomorrow to drop off and my case worker said she would at least get them to the birth mothers case worker. That is all we can ask for at the moment.

Oh, Emily, I'm just crying for you again... I had been praying at random times for you all and little Griffin, that God would keep him in your arms. I am so sad for you and your family once again. I will be praying for you all.

Grieving with you, Emily. I can hardly wrap my mind around it all, and can only imagine the pain that you're walking through. Praying for Divine comfort.

Love you.

So sorry to hear. Have been following your blog for a long time. Just moved back to Birmingham, AL from E-town. Just wanted you to know some of my friends in E-town have been praying for you. Why is life so hard? When will peaceful sleep come? May your load be lightened by the love of others and by God's faithfulness(even though that is really hard to grasp!). I can tell you are deeply cherished by your family.
In my prayers often,
Leah Anderson

Emily, you don't know me but I know of you and your family from the Sovereign Grace Church at IUP. I have been reading your blogs for years.
I just wanted to say that I am praying fervently for you and James. I am overwhelmed with sadness for you and pray that God would grant you great comfort.

I'm so sorry for all that you've been through. My sister recently lost her 3 year old in a tragic accident. It's going on 3 months since we lost him and we've only made it this far by the grace of God. I'll continue to pray for you and your family.
God Bless.

Praying for you during these rough times.
Remember that God only puts trials in our lives because he loves us, and because he knows that with his strength we can get through them. God treasures you, as well as Alivia and Griffin. Let your faith be built stronger during this time. And if you're ever tempted to doubt God's goodness, which I certainly would in your case, it's only human, remember that not a sparrow falls from the sky without God willing it. He is in control and he loves you. You can know that because without him first loving you, you could never love him.

Oh, Emily!
I hadn't read your blog in a while and now this sad news...
I don't know what to say...
Praying and praying for you and your family.
Thank you, too, for sharing the other blog. Both of you women are truly remarkable!
Dear God, please somehow comfort these moms whose children You hold in Your arms now!
