Dear Hannah

Dear Hannah,

My arms are aching to hold you. This is the week we were supposed to be welcoming you into this world, but instead you've been gone from me for a while now. I'm so glad you're in heaven with Jesus, but at the same time your Daddy and I wish you were here with us!

I think about you each and every day. I look at myself in the mirror and know that you should be growing inside of me, and now today you'd be ready to meet us face to face.

Daddy and I have friends and cousins who are having babies this month, and I know that every time I see those precious little ones I'll be thinking of you playing and growing with them.

I'm so thankful that Jesus is watching out for you. If you can't be here with us, you can be with the One who cares for you even more than we could! We read in the book "Heaven is for Real" that Jesus especially loves the children. I get so much comfort knowing that you're with Him and that He can help you understand how much we love you.

I will always love you and will never forget you.

Love,
Mommy

Kari, my arms are aching to hug you after reading this! I've miscarried once before too, and I know how deep that pain is. I still look at babies in a certain way who were born around the same time my baby was supposed to be born.

I'll be praying for you especially during this time. Your baby is worth the mourning, and don't ever let yourself feel silly for mourning somebody you never got to hold like I did. Hannah has already blessed you so much by drawing your thoughts toward heaven.

I didn't know.....I am so sorry for your loss.

Oh, Kari, I love you, cousin, and have been thinking about you during this time. Will continue to pray for you and Brent. Hugs.

Praying for you my sweet friend.

"In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old." -Isaiah 63:9.

Hannah knows how much you love her. And because of that, you are already one of the greatest Moms I know.

Love you!

HUGS sweet girl! I too have been there and wish I could hug you through this. Praying for you!

Brooke said...

My heart aches for you, Kari and Brent! Thankfully you can rest knowing that she is with her Lord, and you will meet her one day. Praying that He will give you the peace you need, especially now and during the hard moments.

Hugs to you!

I am so sorry Kari and Brent! Know that I am praying for you during this difficult time. Rejoicing that we know that Hannah is up in heaven with her heavenly father but mourning with you guys that you don't get to being with her.

Love you and miss you!

Jim and Marilyn said...

I, too have thought of you often this last week and prayed for you. Jesus knows you and loves you so much!
I miss you so much and wish I could just hug you both.

I just happened upon your touching blog entry. May the Lord grant you both peace, comfort and healing--and, according to His perfect will and timing, a wonderful and specially blessed family. Jeremiah 29:11

This just broke my heart in two... I'm so glad I get to see you guys in a couple weeks. I may not be the same as Hannah, but I'm fairly close.

All my love,

Micaela

I've just stumbled on your blog and am so sorry for the loss you've experienced. I hope God blesses you with another pregnancy very soon. It is a comfort when our unborn little ones are with the Lord~I'm glad you have faith in Christ.

Nataly said...

Few years ago my older sister experienced the same kind of loss.Sometimes it's hard to understand why God would let such painful things happen in our lives.I know it's hard, but it's meant to make us stronger.I strongly believe that someday you will meet your little baby in heaven!

I am another stranger who has stumbled across your blog while trying to wind down. I saw that we had some things in common from your favorite sites, one of which is that I too am a Lutheran. So I just wanted to take a moment to pray for you & your husband: for your loss, to strengthen you, to bless you with children through adoption or conception, & thanksgiving for your continued faith in Him. "may the Lord bless you & keep you, may the Lord make his face to shine upon you & be gracious unto you, may the Lord lift his countenance upon you & give you peace."
