Dawn Elizabeth

You would think this could get easier. But it doesn't. And here I go again, sharing the news that heaven welcomed another beautiful soul. This past week, I miscarried our 5th child. I was early on, but both Ry and I had strong feelings it was a girl. We named her Dawn after my friend who passed away 2 years ago.

At least we know the reason, due to my genetic make-up, my chromosomal abnormality. The doctor and counselor told us that we would have to go through more miscarriages if we desired more children. And we have. But it is still hard.

People look at me. "you only have one child?" they ask. If they only knew. I have a large family in heaven! Only another reason to work harder to get there and be with them some day.

Little Dawn, we will already miss you! At least you are comforted in heaven with your siblings and those miscarried babies of our friends and family.

Philip Gabriel, pray for us.
Mary Isabelle, pray for us.
Lucy Grace, pray for us.
Luke David, pray for us.
Dawn Elizabeth, pray for us.
