Jan. 4

3 Jan

Tomorrow is the feast day of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.  We named our first daughter after her. 

My heart is heavy today—it has been all week.  The new year always brings that little reminder of the baby that we lost 6 years ago. 

She gave us hope that we could achieve a pregnancy after more than two years of infertility. 

I know she is looking down on us and praying.

Yet,that ache for her still rests deep in my soul.

One day, I pray, we will all be united in Heaven.
