A day I will never forget



November 6th, 2007... I learned the fate of my sweet Nevaeh (Hannah). I think of her and Edom often and try to make sense of why they were given such a short time on this earth. I am a better person for having them in my life and I have come to realize that in life we can only accept what we cannot change and cherish the time we are given with those we love. So tonight as I rocked Zaela to sleep I held her even tighter as I remembered giving Nevaeh her last hug good-bye.

I still have a hard time looking at Nevaeh's pictures and can hardly believe a year has already past us by. Although time will continue to march on and life will get hectic, I will always want to remember and honor Nevaeh and Edom. So, tomorrow and in the years to come November 6th will be set aside as a special day for Zaela and I to reflect on the past and appreciate the present.... Good-night for now my sweet angels.

I'd like to say that the anniversaries get easier, but I am going on two years and they really don't. Last saturday was 2 yrs since my Kaia was referred to me. Consciously, I did not acknowledge it, but my heart knew- I was restless and sad the whole day. I now see why.
Hugs to you, and sweet Z. Our first little ones are in Heaven together.

Lisa, I think of your girls often, too. I also think they were in your life for a reason but that doesn't make the loss any easier. Keep them in your heart and continue to hold Z tight!
