While we were at the OB yesterday we tried to explain to Josiah that the baby was in heaven. It was so sweet as he told us that the baby was right there on the screen. We spent much of the day trying to explain to him that the baby was no longer in my belly but was instead in heaven and that we were sad but we would be ok.
As I reflected more on this it breaks my heart to think that Virginia and the miscarried baby were there in heaven waiting for this baby. I could imagine the 3 of them hugging it out and my heart longs for the day when I can hold my 3 little ones in my arms. It is unbelievable to me that 3 of my immediate family members are in heaven--that's more than I have right here with me now.
