And We're Back....

I know, I know, I know.....I said I was coming back here soon to update you on things. Well, life just has been so busy with a toddler and two older boys that my time to even check email is few and far between! Like I have said before, I don't mind this life but I do miss updating everyone on things and getting your encouragement! Here is an 11 month picture of Jeremiah....yes he will be one year old on the 15th of this month!!!!
He walked across the living room on my birthday (6/1) so he has been keeping us so busy. He is such a joy and loves his family and we all adore him.



In March, I had a great opportunity to meet up with two of my dear "Atlanta Girls" and just this last month yet another.....you may or may not remember my trip to Atlanta 4 weeks after Jacob died....I met 7 other mothers who had experienced a loss of a child that same year and we all met up at Deeper Still in Atlanta (here's a refresher: http://fahmer.blogspot.com/2008/07/ok-so-atlanta.html as well as the previous post to this one).

These Mamas have meant so much to me over the last two years...meeting up with them and seeing our miracles on earth play together makes my heart jump with praise for My Saviour who holds my Baby Boy in His arms and who He used to bring these precious people into my life!

Here are a few shots of me with my mama girls and Jeremiah with his buddies....

Welllllll....I tell you this because the 8 of us will be meeting again! This time not just us 8 mamas but us mamas AND our miracle babies since our losses!!!!!!! Yes, each of us have birthed or adopted a baby since our losses and we are all meeting. I tell you this in hopes to excite your hearts of this amazing event!!! As I prepare for this trip, I just cannot believe where we all are in two years and just the thought of laying eyes on all those mama AND all those babies just brings tears to my eyes....I cannot believe what I am going to experience. Please...please...PLEASE be in prayer for this weekend....we all come from different parts of the USA and are traveling all different methods and times. But mostly, be in prayer that God's Spirit will just overwhelm us and bring us to praise and worship the One who created us and our precious children. I am so excited and I just cannot wait to see what God has in store for this weekend! Thank you all and I WILL update you...as I am sure the others will as well!

I can't wait to see the pictures of all of them and you together:) Eight different blog posts from different perspectives are going to be a "BEST SELLER' in my heart. I am excited to read all about "my" eight girls:) I love you all. Praying for safe travel and more miracles.

Brings tears to your eyes and to mind dear Karen...you ever get that inner-spirit-nudge that you just know something? Well, I knew about this, somehow I knew you'd be meeting again...I think for a moment about the picture of you and those other mamas with the babies that have been birthed since the loss of a baby...and well, my heart fills with joy and excitement and I am just thrilled for you!!! What bittersweetness all mixed in with such a beautiful beautiful time God has and will prepare for all of you, enjoy :)

Many prayers for your time together and safe travel. Oh to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord. To see His faithfulness upon your lives. To be united with the dear sisters that God has placed in your path. Have a wonderful time!

Loved the pictures!!

I am so excited for you all. When I visited Kristy's page and found out you guys were reuniting and ALL of you were blessed with babies, the tears just came. What an incredible blessing and what a sweet time. I will indeed be praying as you all navigate traveling different ways and doing it with a little one in tow. We'll look forward to hearing how it went. Oh, may God just give all 8 of you the best weekend and may He get you all there safely and without any tears except for joyful ones.
