Due Date

Today was the day we were given at our first OB appointment in October for our official due date. Who knows if we would have already given birth to our little one, or if he or she would still be cooking away. What we do know is that our little angel baby is being taken care of by our Heavenly Father. And while I'm selfish and mourn our baby every day, I know that this was God's plan.

I often wonder if our home would have been covered in pink or blue, or if he or she would have looked like me or the Mr. Would the baby have had a head full of my thick hair, or have that one little dimple like his or her daddy? We don't know all of these answers here on earth, but our little baby is perfect and in the hands of God.

This is the only picture we have of our little angel, and one that we treasure. But one day we will see our little one and have our answers.


Since we will never know what your actual birth date would have been... we celebrate today as your birth day. You'll never been forgotten, and you'll be loved for eternity.
