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.

Today, somewhere, my sweet little boy is 2 months old. I can't stand not being with him today or everyday. I miss him so terribly. I just pray that he is being loved and cared for. Tomorrow is my birthday and I had such big plans for our almost shared birthdays. Oh well. I love you Griffin. More than you will ever know.

It saddens me to read your posts about your losts. I am so sorry. May the New Year bring "happiness and joy" and may it be full of more laughter than tears. I just pray that you will find a strength to face what ever lies before you. Keep the posts coming!

I know that our dear Savior has a plan in all of His doing. I pray that like Job, while the beginning of his life was rough, and full of heartache, his life turned for the better, when God shined His mercy on his life. I pray that God shines his mercy down on your family and that this next year and the years to follow brings and over abundence of love and happiness.

Dear Emily & James-

Please know that you are on our hearts and in our prayers. Your suffering is not unoticed by the Savior. I was out shopping the other night and went past a rack of little girl clothes as I picked some out for my niece. They had a red velvet skirt that was designed to look like a lady bug-it was red with black polka dots. I immediately thought of Livi and felt like buying all that they had on the rack as if filling my arms with them was like giving her a great big hug.Please know that we love you, we love Livi, and Griffin. Even if he is not in your physical care right now he is not outside of God's care. As a mother who has faced someone wanting me to have an abortion you have no idea how it encourages my heart that there are people willing, ready & able to open their homes and hearts to these babies and their Moms. God knew exactly what he was doing in matching you up with this woman who is struggling to let go of her baby Em-what an opoortunity to share the Gospel.Even though it maybe hard to get up in the morning--this is God's kindness to you--that he would put someone in your life who is struggling with a similar heart issue as you so that you can look upon his goodness and faithfulness in spite of your circumstances. Keeping you in prayer.

Happy Birthday. God does have a plan but sometimes it's so hard to see. Hoping you feel Him holding you in His arms while Alivia celebrates your birthday in Heaven! Praying - Sue F.

Just want you to know that you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I can't pretend to imagine how you must feel - but I pray for a change of circumstances that can bring the joy you so long for. Praying for blessings -

I continue to pray, in Colorado, that the Lord will place a baby in your arms very, very soon. May the Lord hold you gently in his hands, and assure you of his loving presence until then.

Happy Birthday Emily. God made you and knew what he was doing when Livi and Griffin were able to feel so incredibly loved and cared for by you.
My prayers are with you always. P.S. I loved my collage I purchased on Etsy from you. (Green floral print) I loved the colors and the style. Thank-you.
