Our sweet baby


This week will commemorate one year since the birth and death of our sweet, beautiful baby. We are so grateful to have had her for the two days that we did and look forward to the day that we can all be reunited again. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her. I am so grateful to know that our family is forever and that we will one day be with those beloved ones we have lost. This past year has not been an easy one for me and Mr. Rochester but with each other's support and the wonderful support of all of our family and friends, we have been able to deal with our loss. I am so grateful for a loving husband and for everyone that has helped us through this. We both look forward to the day when the Lord blesses us with more children.

I cannot believe it has already been a year!! I still cry when I think about you and all that you went through. Actually I cried more that week then any other time in my life. I LOVE YOU!!!! I wish I could be with you this week.

She is such an angel. Our thoughts and prayers are still with you.

Aria, I had no idea about Adele until we tracked each other own on Facebook, and I saw your precious pictures you posted there. She is an angel! My heart just aches for you guys. My sister's little daughter died of SIDS when she was 7 weeks old, about a year and a half ago now. I know she struggles with it every day, every moment, so I really admire you and your faith. I was actually thinking about you a lot this week, and just want you to know we are praying for you! Love Anne

I actually woke up thinking about you, knowing that Adele's time was close. Thank you so much for sharing so much of yourself and your experience--I wish I could be with you and do anything but sit here at my computer, so far away. Hugs, girl.

I often think of you and Adele as I watch my own baby girl grow. How can I help it when we were both due at the same time. I often wonder, "Why did this happen to Aria?" I give Abby hugs, hold her tighter, and am a lot more grateful. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Thank you all so much for your words of love and support. We are so grateful to have such a supportive network of friends and family. We went to visit Adele's grave this weekend and had a wonderful visit. I am hoping that we can make it to the temple in the next few weeks. That is where we feel closest to her. Thank you again, to all of you. Your love and friendship means so much to me.

Amber said...

Just wanted to let you know that you're in our thoughts and prayers in the upcoming weeks, too. You and Eddie are so brave. I admire your perserverance and faith so much.

You know I was just thinking about this because I was reading through my journal from last year. The past year went by pretty fast. You two are a very strong couple. It makes me ache inside to remember what happened. Beautiful, sweet pictures. We love you two!

What a beautiful thing it is to have an eternal understanding when these things happen. While I'm sure it has been hard, I have no doubt it has strengthened your marriage.
