Yesterday marked ten years since this mama lost her very first baby, sweet Zane. Ten years. That's how old my little boy is. Ten. I remember my husband and I went to the hospital to offer some sort of comfort that night, but I stayed in the car in the parking garage crying because I couldn't bear to experience even a fraction of the pain this mama felt. If you've ever been through such grief, I'm so so sorry.

"The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."
Job 1:21

This verse and song was a source of comfort and strength for this mama during such a difficult time. I pray it will comfort those of you who have been through this too.

Over the past ten years since that day, this family grew by six more children--beautiful, thriving, energetic, and lovable beings. Here is a little glimpse of their youngest, Calla, at her newborn session from 2020. Such a precious, sweet baby girl.
