Tonight we celebrated Alayna and Ella's third birthday with family. I had originally only invited the grandparents (like last year) but then my sister called and asked if her family could come. Of course I said yes. The only reason I didn't invite the whole fam is because its such a busy time of the year and I didn't want to fill up their schedules more so. But I LOVE that they want to come. Makes me happy that they want to help us celebrate our angel babies. After talking to my sister I invited one of my brothers and his fam too (the other brother and his fam are on vacation) so almost the whole family helped us celebrate. We kept it simple as always but it was a nice evening. We released balloons at the cemetery and then drove to a nearby park for cupcakes, ice cream, and play time!!!

Love begins before a baby is born...and that love will live forever in our hearts. When you lose a baby, you lose not only the promise of a very special human being, but you lose many beautiful hopes and dreams as well.

We simply do not see the bigger picture, but we choose to believe that there is a bigger picture and that our loss is a part of some wonderful story authored by God himself.
