So, Feb 4th will mark the 4 year anniversary since my husband and I lost our beautiful baby girl, Angel Joy. Every year since her passing has been difficult, but this year is even harder. My belief in our Lord and Savior is stronger, but now that we have our daughter, Jade Hope, I have found it harder to deal with. Every day I get to watch my 10 month old grow up more and more before my eyes. I love her smile, her giggle, and the way we chase each other around the house, but this is why it hurts so much. I get to share all these moment with Jade and I never got a moment with Angel, or even with the second baby we lost too early in our pregnancy to know rather they were male or female. So, this year is definitely more of a struggle. I'm so thankful Angel and our other baby is with God, but seeing Jade grow up makes it so much harder now that I know what I'm missing out on. Angel was a still born when I went into labor at 25 weeks, she was perfectly formed, but unfortunately my cervix was not strong enough to hold to term. She was so beautiful and Jade looked a lot like her when she was born. So, I really want prayer over my husband and I this year. I think this is the first time since we lost Angel, that I have actually seen my husband so emotional about it. However, we did decide to make the anniversary of her death a day of celebration. We are taking Jade to the park, then to the river to feed the ducks, and then we are bringing her home for some finger painting. So, I hope God will allow it to be adventurous, full of joy and thankfulness that Angel doesn't have to face the turmoils of this world.

Now, I want to send out a praise report for all the good things God is doing in my life. My marriage is stronger then ever, and my husband and I are going on five years together. I can see that God is starting to work on his heart and He is definitely working on mine. He has called me to do some exciting work, and I just hope I will fully entrust Him with it. Also, I am planning on going back to school to become a CNA and work in a hospice while my husband goes back to school for his dream job! I am so excited at all the doors God is opening and I just wanted to openly thank Him for all of His love. We are still battling a lot, but I know God will pull us through!

Thank you all for the prayers. Something amazing happened this week and today. It took a long time, but after so many years of my husband being so angry and bitter at God for taking Angel, he finally wants to let go of that anger. I know that it is only because of the prayer warriors out there that have been so wonderful to pray over our family. The day was a blessing today and we got to spend it with Jade and just got out and about. Unfortunately, no park because of the rain and cold, but it was fun still the same. God is doing a mighty work in my husband's life, now, and it was very evident today. I feel like a little kid on Christmas, because that has been my biggest desire. I want to be able to grow closer to God along with my husband so that we can rely on God together. Thank you all again. You will never know how much of a blessing your prayers have been. Please, keep praying, I know my husband will have many trials ahead of him.

Bless God for all He's done & is doing in your lives. He's such a good, good God. Building His people in strength and courage, forming and making them into who He wants them to be. May He just continue this our pouring into your lives.



I understand your situation, I had 6 miscarriages prior to birthing my first daughter, most were early, but one was at three month. But God had His plan, and now I have 3 beautiful daughters. Anytime, I am tempted to dwell, on what happened or what might have been, I remember that those babes are with their Father in heaven, and that He has a plan and purpose for my life, my husband and our three daughters. I am always encouraged by that. May our Lord God give you peace of heart, spirit and mind through His word & His Holy Spirit, In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Continue to lean on God. You are in a low valley right now but I know for sure He will bring you and your family out of it and up to a holy high place just as He has for me and my family. I still miss and wonder what my 8/1985 miscarriage child would have been like, I am sure as only mothers can be that it was a boy, but the blessing of five children and a grandchild really helps me as knowing every day is a day closer to a heavenly reunion with ALL of your children and it will be as if not a moment was lost in His kingdom of perfection. God bless you my sister and feel what you must now but know , "this too shall pass".

Hi Celcila,
I am so sorry about Angel and the other baby. I had a miscarriage after 2 months of being pregnant. It was very hard. We have a beautiful baby boy who is 8. We had him 3 years later. We are so very blessed. Just enhoy the time you have with Jade Hope and embrace her. That is neat that you are celebrating Angel Joy on the 4th and taking Jade to the park and doing things with her. I will be praying for you and your family this week. Thank God for the Praise report. Give God all the glory. Always remember as hard as it is you will see Angel one day as well as your other child that you lost. Just as My husband and I will get to see our other child one day. I cherish the ground Abraham Adam walks on and love him dearly. God bless you both and your daughter. When I came home from the hospital with our son I just held him and embraced him and most importantly I PRAISED the Lord for this beautiful baby boy. God is good all the time.

I will keep you in my prayers during the next few days. Praise God that Angel in with God and like you said, she doesn't have to face the turmoils of this world. God is good, and His will is perfect.
