Our Baby Girl Went to Be With Jesus

After a few years of trying, my husband and I were expecting our first baby, due May of 2023.

We were having a baby girl.

At 29 weeks pregnant, while at a routine appointment, the doctor couldn't find her heartbeat. That's when we learned our baby girl went to be with Jesus.

She was born on February 25, which was the same day we planned to have my baby shower.

This journey we've found ourselves on hasn't been what we expected, and it definitely has not been easy.

My husband and I both agree that our daughter will never be replaced, but we are ready to begin our journey toward Baby Number Two.

I know God loves us and has a plan, but all of this does bring with it a lot of scary and negative thoughts.

I am hoping for help and support from those who have been where I am now.
