Good bye to our baby girls.

To Our precious angels - Emma, Kelsey and Lauren,
We have spent the past 22 weeks preparing for your arrival, just last week-end we finished painting and setting up the cribs in your nursery. With a few short weeks left till we knew you could be born, we were so confident you would arrive safely. Monday night our lives changed forever. In the midst of everything that was happening so fast, we continuously felt you three kicking and had to believe a miracle was going to happen. A nurse even calmed our fears by telling us that miracles do happen. As the hours went by, it became inevitable that you three had to be delivered. I was dilated to 10 centimeters with no cervix left and my blood pressure was dangerously low. Around 6pm on Tuesday, November 6th completely surrounded by our families, we experienced the most excruciating pain of our entire lives. One by one we met and lost all three of our children. Emma arrived first and let out a small whimper as if to say a quick hello. Kelsey (Emma's identical twin) arrived second and Lauren shortly followed - both girls kicking till the very end. Within minutes an overwhelming emptiness filled our hearts as the nurse informed us you had all passed. We held you, we kissed you, we loved on you and you were so perfect. While we selfishly believed we needed you in our lives, Jesus obviously needed you three more then we did.
We will NEVER forget the incredible happiness that has filled our hearts and lives for the past 22 weeks. In the midst of our pain, we do thank God for the joy and happiness you brought to us. We will never forget you three angels, we will never forget your beautiful faces - you will forever live in our hearts. We will continue to love you with the same intensity we love your sister. Stick together up in heaven girlies and watch over each other forever. We will love you forever our precious angels.
Mommy and Daddy

Our hearts have quieted some now that

whisper my prayers and reassure you
of my love. We can never know how you feel, but please know we are with you. . . I will be writing to

dearly. Your Angels will be comforting you and God is present
with each one who is reaching out
to you.

Katie and Jeff,

No words can express my feelings. Many are praying for you and your family. Know that the angels are praying also.

May your hearts be mended with God’s love.
