For those who have listened to my cries and worried for my heart in our battle to grow our family, please know how much I love and appreciate you.

While it's still a challenge at times (rightfully so), I would like you to know that my perspective has changed. I fully realize how blessed I am to have my family... to be a mom no matter how God chose to make that so. I no longer NEED to give physical birth to a child. I don't NEED that to complete me as a woman, as a person, as a mom.

I have read countless blogs, news articles, emails about adoption, infertility, loss of infants, multiple miscarriages, etc, etc... but none has touched my soul as this one. And this incredible video in honor of a little guy who lived just 99 days gives one real perspective.

Think I'll go kiss my sleeping girl.

What a touching story. I watched the video that is on the blog and Copeland was such a beautiful little girl. I can't believe the words that this grieving mother is able to express. I love how she was able to admit her anger while confessing her love of Christ.

You are very special my friend and give that girl of yours a kiss from her Miss Marie too!

Peace Out!
