Forever Mine

-- Forever Mine--- Those are the words that Jesus said when Baby Jack came to him. They are also the last words of Chris Tomlin's song "Amazing Grace" As he is the Lord's now, He'll remain in our hearts Forever.

This fall while in the combine, everything runs through a guys mind. This fall I was hoping to have a new co-pilot with me, this year the buddy seat was empty. Almost everyday I'd hear a song, or something on the radio, and I'd get thoughts to write about on the blog. Now hopefully the next few weeks I can get them on paper.

We got Baby Jacks headstone delivered late this summer.
Here's Jonathan and Ally by it.

We Also got our "Jack" (Bradford Pear) tree planted this Fall. It was given to us by some of our wonderful friends and neighbors. Thank you.

As we look back a year ago, we were keeping the Exciting news of a new baby a secret, then, having told that there was a fatal birth defect. What an emotional roller coaster. We've both lost loved ones, old and young, but this one hits the hardest, really hard at times. As we wanted another baby, and now he's gone, and patience is one thing I wasn't born with. Hopefully someday again..

We're thankful that we were able to concieve him, as others (some relatives and some friends) are waiting for their miracle to happen. How I wish we could grant them their wish, hopefully in time their wish will come true.


  1. I love his headstone with the little bear. It's sad our other children have to go to a cemetery to visit their sibling.

  2. It turned out really nice you guys!

    Been thinking of you guys the weather turns's going to be a long winter without our babies.

  3. His headstone is beautiful! It definitely feels like a long wait. *hugs*

  4. What a beautiful headstone! I love it :-)

    I've been looking up other BLM's headstones because I hope to get one soon for my daughter. I can't afford it yet, but want it to be planned out and perfect so I can get it soon hopefully. My daughter, Lily Katherine, was stillborn at fullterm on March 16, 2010.

    I'd love to have you follow along on my blog as well.

    Much love and hugs,
