Wordless Wednesday (April 16, 2008 4 years later)

4 years ago today I found out our sweet little baby's heart had stopped beating and that I had a missed miscarriage. These are the only pictures I have of her..

It was a very hard time and one day I hope to blog about it all.. but for now.. God is Good.. He is in control and I"m able to look at these pictures smile and Praise Him for the 13 weeks this sweet little one grew in me. Happy Wordless Wednesday(well in this case not so wordless)

I'm sorry. Today is a tough day - sending you hugs!

KC said...

Thank you Fantastagirl..
This is the 1st year I haven't cried my eyes out.. I'm OK.. I really am.. There will always be a spot in my heart for my sweet little angel.. but God has healed me and I grew so much though that time in my life. I still tear up every now and then when I think of it.. but like I said.. I can look at the ultra sound pictures now and smile and Know God had different plans for our lives He gave us Little Man who wouldn't be here other wise.. So while I want to always remember Alyssa.. I'm doing well, and this is the 1st year that it really isn't a hard day for me. More of a day to remember my sweet little girl, sort of like a birth day.. The day she went to live her life with God.

Sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers today! Hugs to you.

What a great testimony to God's strength and peace lived out in your life. God is definitely good! Thanks for sharing your story.

It will be two years on July 4th for me! It was hard to deal with but I have three healthy kids and I'm so thankful that God gave them to me!

I am so sorry KC. I had a miscarriage when Princess was a year old. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. I got pg with my little Prince two months later, and that helped me cope more than anything. There is still a sadness within me for what might have been. But then I would not have my Prince. ((hugs))

Sarah said...

Wow, thanks for sharing. Those are powerful pictures. God is indeed faithful and will carry you through this day. You are in my prayers!

Jana said...

Like the others, I'm so sorry for your loss. But isn't it just incredible how God uses such things to remind us of His Sovereignty and goodness?? I'm so glad you've been able to find joy and comfort in Him on days like today. No doubt He is using you and your story to bring others a little closer to Him!

In His grip

it's me, Val said...

I thank you, too, for sharing. I had the same thing happen to me. It's not easy.

Hi KC

I had a very similar experience in 1997. I was also 13 weeks pregnant and I went for a check up and the gynae couldn't find a heart beat. So sorry, I know the pain that you must have felt.
Love Fee

Beautiful song...... Glory Baby. Oh when we get to meet them for the first time..... what a wonderful day it will be!

It's beyond my realm of imagination, and I'm so very very sorry for you and your family.

Lilli & Nevada said...

I know how it is and no matter what they will always be a part of you. My heart aches for you

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows said...

I am so sorry. That must have been very difficult. I'll say a prayer for you today!

Happy WW! God is good. Stay strong...

My WW meme is up and running. We honor the 1-year anniversary of the tragic deaths at Virginia Tech.

peace, Villager

Heather said...

Bless you, dear one. I know a similar pain.

Today is bittersweet, I know, but I rejoice with you that this loved baby is in heaven with our first daughter.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Oh KC, I'm so sorry... I have very similar ultrasound photos carefully saved away as well - I miscarried our first baby 8 years ago last month. Please know that my thoughts are with you.

Oh my heart aches for what you went through. Thank God she lives in your heart forever...

Trish said...

Beautiful pictures, and a beautiful song playing in the background. I am so sorry for your loss but thankful that you can look forward to meeting her in eternity.
