9 Months . . .

Yesterday, Dylan would've been 9 months. I've officially been mourning for my son almost as long as I was pregnant with him. I have this strange serenity over me right now, a calm washing over me. It's difficult to explain, maybe just God's way of protecting me from the deep, deep bitter sadness that I could be in.

Some Borrowed Writing

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

I absolutely love this picture of Dylan. It's simply gorgeous. Thank you for sharing him with us. I'm happy you are finding some serenity. I'm finding that sometimes God doesn't necessarily give us what we want (e.g. our babies), but he does give us strength to deal with our loss -- hopefully more often than not.
