Eight weeks ago our baby boy was born. Eight weeks ago our baby boy’s heart beat on this earth outside of the womb for a little less than 2 hours. Eight weeks ago our baby boy died. Eight weeks seems to be really hard for us. Seven weeks and six days was ok but something about today has been really hard.
We went to church this morning, and it was really hard. It’s like our pastor had it out for us 🙂 The message was one of encouragement but was really, really hard to hear as the truth of it is that we are in a really really hard place.
Tommy and I have talked about how we want to be ok. How we wish we were ok. For 8 weeks now, I’ve told everyone that we’re ok. Maybe a better answer is that we’re not ok, but we will be. Because how can you be ok just 2 months out from losing your baby? But we know, or we trust, that we will be ok. That our hearts won’t break every day. That doing life will get easier.
Today we are sweetly remembering our baby boy.
