23 Weeks, 1 Day

The day Kinsey and Ryan were born.

The night we came home from the hospital we heard this song, and while we know it is highly over-played, it will always hold significance with us.

We are 3 days past that date with this pregnancy, but never past that date in our hearts.

I'm a lurker on your blog (and all the others that I read) but I had to comment on the slideshow. While I couldnt get it to work properly, it certainly brought tears to my eyes. What a difficult and heartfelt thing to share with the world. Your babies are beautiful. The love you feel for them is very evident in the photographs. My thoughts are with you and with your current pregnancy.

What a beautiful tribute to Kinsey and Ryan. I know the fears that you are experiencing as you move through this pregnancy, but I rejoice with you as every new day passes. Kinsey and Ryan are with you and your precious little girl...always.

Tomorrow will be 4 years since I said good-bye to my Devin and Elizabeth (born at 22 weeks). Like you said - we get past each year or each date in pregnancy (I'm currently 30 weeks pregnant with twins) but never past them in our hearts.

Holding you close...

What a beautiful tribute to Kinsey and Ryan. And I've never heard that song and thought of our angels- I think it was rather appropriate. I thank you for sharing their photos with us- they are precious and in them I can see how much you really adore them.

Oh they are just beautiful. Thank you for sharing your photos with us. It breaks my heart that they can't be with you in this realm. And yes, your love for them is so obvious.

Beautiful.
What and amazing tribute to Kinsey and Ryan.

I must confess I could not watch it all the way through as it is making me miss my Tess and Oliver. It's almost been three years since I said good bye and some days it feels like yesterday.

Sleeping in the other room is a precious baby girl that has healed my heart in many ways. I look forward to the day that you too will have this moment.

Sending you much love and strength and lots of deep breaths.

That's the song for my Dylan!

We had it played at his funeral, and I listened to the cd on that track for months straight after he was gone. It was the song on the radio when I got into the car after my first prenatal appointment.

What a Beautiful tribute to Kinsey and Ryan. They are very obviously loved always.

Oh, MKV, I did not expect this. That song...those photos....wow..I started feeling a little overwhelmed when I was watching Kinsey and Ryan's ultrasound pictures, but then I completely lost it when I saw you and your wonderful husband holding your beautiful babies. My heart breaks to see this. Your loss and your pain has become more real to me. The way you shared this was so thoughtful and honorable. The way you held your babies so tenderly and had them so sweetly adorned, I know they felt cherished and loved for those moments they had with you and your babe.

I was so touched by your video and have a great deal of respect for your strength. I never had the courage to meet the girls I lost.

I hope the rest of your pregnancy is effortless and happy :)

I think problems affecting women include endometriosis or damage to the fallopian tubes (which may have been caused by infections such as chlamydia)
