Healing balm.





Having a new baby in our home after 5.5 years has been an incredible change. I have felt every emotion on the planet. I've gone from culture shock, to being sure I couldn't do it, to feeling more confidant in my abilities. Sweet Avery is such a healing balm to our broken hearts, but it has made our grief for Isaac more apparent, as we grieve not having these moments with him. What I have appreciated the most, is having my arms filled again. I have so appreciated having a baby in our home when we've been missing that for so long, it helps our family to feel more complete. What a blessing and tender mercy our sweet Avery is, we love him so much.

He is beautiful and I am happy for you. I was just reading a post from a woman who hasn't posted in a year. Her feelings are just like yours. She has a 7 month old daughter now but she grieves all the firsts she didn't have with her child who passed. ((HUGS))

Avery is SO beautiful! I know he has helped your hearts so much. Yes, Isaac will always be in your hearts and you will miss him. The only consolation is our beliefs that we will see our babes in Heaven one day. xoxo
