There are some blog posts that you never want to write...this is one of them. The past two weeks have been so much different than we had ever imagined and we have faced what we never thought we would have to face. We have been looking forward to February for months...this was the month our precious Sophia Kate would be born, and the month we would bring her home from the hospital. Months of prayer and preparation all awaited this month. Over the past weeks our home filled with tiny little pink things waiting for our precious girl. Sophia was born, and she was beautiful...but we could not bring her home because she was already with Jesus.
The past two weeks have been some of the most difficult days we have ever had to face. We have experienced more sadness then we have ever known, but through it all we have also experienced the peace and presence of Christ as we never have before. We do not know why The Lord chose to take our sweet Sophia so soon, but we rejoice in knowing that she is safe in the arms of Jesus.
In the past weeks we have been surrounded by more love than we could have ever imagined. We have felt the prayers of so many, and we are so thankful. There are so many things that we do not know, so many questions that will never have answers...but we know that God is good, and that He is faithful.
