On Sunday my mother-in-law was at church and wanted to go see Noah's grave marker. We drove to the cemetery and it was a beautiful sunny day. While we were out there, I walked around the other grave markers (as I've done many times) and just prayed over them, remembering the families of those precious children. I've often wondered how their babies died....if they were stillborn like Noah. I've wondered how the mommies of these children are holding up and I've really longed to connect with at least one of them. David thought I was a little nutty, but I took photos of a few of the grave markers. I wanted to look up some of the names on the internet to see if any of the other moms had blogs similar to mine. I searched about 8 of them and found an obituary for one of the baby girls who passed away in March. I saw her parent's names listed, so I decided to look up her mother on facebook. I found her. With the risk of being seen as a stalker, I messaged her and told her that my son was buried in Babyland with her daughter. I told her that I was praying for her family. Turns out that we both have the same doctor. An instant friendship was formed....she's also a sweet sister in Christ. We traded several messages back and forth last night. I can tell she has a beautiful heart and I'm so glad that God prompted me to message her. I'm hoping she will visit our church soon so that we can meet! :o)
Please pray for my new friend as she has lost 2 babies in the last 2 years. She also has 2 precious children here on earth. Her blog is http://www.dawnsjoy.blogspot.com/.
