The Most Marvelous Mother

I know this post is about two weeks late, but I just want to let everyone know how much I love my mother. If I had to pick only a couple words to describe her I would say patient, selfless, and amazing! Just a couple really cool things about her: As a child she would always make sure that our hair was done really nice before we went anywhere (which I probably didn't care about then, but not as a semi-parent I think it is awesome). She would always have a delicous homemade dinner for us when we got home from school or sports practice. She earned her Young Womens Recognition when she served in the Young Womens because she converted in her late teens and didn't get a chance. She is an amazing photographer. She comes into my class every Friday to help me with the arts and crafts, plus she is like our classroom photographer! I love you so much mom. Thanks for being so wonderful!

Our Sweet Annabelle

Our precious baby was finally able to go back to our Heavenly Father this past weekend. We think that she passed away Thursday, April 27. I delivered on Saturday, May 1st at 1:03 pm. She weighed 1 pound 11 oz and was 13.2 inches long. I was 34 weeks pregnants and the ultrasound tech said that she was measuring 24 weeks and 5 days. The docotor and nurses said that they have never seen everything go so smoothly. This was honestly the most amazing experience I have ever been through. As soon as she was delivered I felt so happy and peaceful. We are so grateful for all the blessings that came with this trial so we just wanted to share a few thoughts with you.
We feel so privileged and grateful to have been able to go through this experience with our daughter Annabelle. We truly feel as though we have been prepared for this for months through prayer to our Heavenly Father. We know that He is the reason we are able to deal with this so well. He has continued to give us strength and comfort from the first sign of something being wrong up to today. Something else that makes this experience less painful is knowing that we will be able to be with our daughter again. We do not look at this as a loss, rather a short delay to the happiness of being together one day. So many good things have come from something that seemed so devastating: we have received much love and support from friends and family; prayers, thoughts and service towards us has been an overwhelming blessing; and we get to see the good in all the people around us. We thank each and every one of you for giving us that blessing.
We know that Heavenly Father will not test us beyond that which we can handle. He knows us so very well. When we put our trust and faith in Him, He blesses us. We are grateful for the experience to grow closer to our Heavenly Father and to our friends and family.
