The Footprints Our Baby Made

How very softly
you tiptoed into our world.

Almost silently,
only a moment you stayed.

But what an imprint

your footsteps have left
upon our hearts.
(Dorothy Ferguson)

In loving memory of our precious baby whose life was a beautiful gift from God, given to us to love and cherish for but a short time. Our little angel touched our lives in a way no one ever has. We grieve, but not as those who have no hope; because there's a Father in heaven who's taking good care of our treasure... And while he romps on streets of gold, we can imagine just how much more wonderful heaven will be.

Oh Brittney and Andy -- this sweet baby will forever hold a special place in your hearts.

While your arms ache to hold this precious gift, I pray that you will find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father is holding your little one in a loving embrace. I also pray that those around you will shower you with love, care and understanding as you grieve.

May you also experience the richness of God's love and mercy during this difficult time. He cares for you and sees your tears.

Much love to you. ♥ ♥

Dear Brittney(and Andy)-

For your pain...I am so sorry. Though I never have personally experienced this, my mother miscarried three times. It was difficult for me even as a child.
My deepest sympathy is with you, and my prayers are as well. May God wrap you in His arms and hold you there as you grieve...

I'm so sorry Britt. I can't begin to imagine how you feel. I've been praying for you and Andy everyday, since I found out Sunday, and I will continue to pray for you. I love you girl. <3

Dear Brittney,
I have followed your blog for a very long time but never commented. I just wanted you to know how sad I am for you. I'm so sorry. I'll be praying for you and Andy.

In Christ,

Brittney, what a beautiful tribute to your baby! what glory you give God in this loss. I pray God comforts you with abiding peace and cradles you with His arms as you wait for Andrew to come back to you. My heart cries for you both. I lost my first baby too. Only he was 6 1/2 months along. He lived 23 hours. I never got to hold him. But I know that God holds him now and my son holds him as they wait for me in eternity. God bless you, hon. Will be praying for Andrew in Iraq. selahV
