There is something incredibly bittersweet about having a new baby after the loss of a child. You... Continue Reading →

More Time In Heaven Than On Earth

Olivia has been in heaven now for 20 months, 1 week and 3 days. She was only alive for 20 months and 3 days. That means that Olivia has officially been in heaven longer than the amount of time she spent on earth. Needless to say the last few weeks have been tough. I think... Continue Reading →
