One Week Ago...

One week ago, was probably the worst day of our lives.

Back in August, I mentioned a little bit about our sweet baby girl's condition. But, to be honest, I kind of pushed it aside and decided to turn to prayer, in hopes that a miracle might overcome any hardship she had ahead of her.

However, God had other plans.

Instead of figuring out life as a new family of three, Sam & I were faced with having to say goodbye to our first born only nine days after we said hello. Something I wouldn't wish on anyone.

Now we are back home, trying to find our new normal, yet all we can think about is our precious Charlotte! A future we once hoped & prayed for has been ripped away from us and I find myself in tears at the mere thought of her and what life might have been like.

Currently, I am holding Revelation 21:4 close to my heart in hopes that Charlotte is pain-free & perfect up in Heaven...

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

Thank you again to all who have been sending up prayers and thoughts on our behalf.


  1. Meaghan--Crying tears for you this morning, and Sam, and Charlotte. No words...just believing that Charlotte is an eternal being and that you will dance with her someday. Thank you for sharing this beautiful picture. Charlotte has the perfect mommy and daddy for her in her short life on this planet (and for eternity). You are loved...

  2. Meaghan, there are no words to express how sorry I am for the loss of your beautiful baby girl.

  3. Oh, Meaghan, she is absolutely beautiful!! This picture is so precious. I cannot begin to imagine the heartache you all are feeling. I am so sorry for your loss. I love that Revelation passage you shared; our hope is not in this broken world, but in the perfect & restored world to come, where we all will get to dance together! Praying for your mama's heart as you continue to remember, process, & grieve.

  4. Such a beautiful photo of you and your girl. I am so sorry that you guys are going through this. Hugs and prayers for both of you.
