Today is one of those days when the tears are just under the surface, falling so easily. One of those days when I have to look through all of Harper's pictures and cry for her, wondering how this happened to us and where it all went wrong. I am sad. It is June. How is it June already? Has it really been almost a year? I wish she were here. I wonder what she would be doing had she lived. I wonder what her giggle would sound like, what her smile would look like, and what her arms would feel like around my neck. I wonder what we would be planning for her first birthday. I wonder if people will remember her birthday. I am scared that they won't.
I have been happily married to my best friend and soul mate for 4 years. 2010 was going to be our year, we were FINALLY pregnant with our first child and we were over the moon! On June 25, 2010 our world came crashing down as we had to say goodbye to our sweet angel, Harper Grace. I have never known such love and pain as I have since that life changing day. On August 28th of this year, we welcomed Harper's little sister, Norah Grace. The meaning of Norah is "the shining light" as she is our bright light along our journey through grief, healing and hope.
