Way up high... is our little Sofia Rose and her sibling, Sam. They are in heaven and this blog is a tribute to them and a way to keep their spirits alive. This blog is for Sofia & Sam, for us, and for anyone who wishes to understand what we are going through. They say that a "Rainbow Baby" is one that is born after the "storm" of losing a child. On January 20, 2012, we joyfully gave birth to our rainbow baby, Rose Maria.

Poem - The Cord
I stumbled across this poem today and thought it was nice. As you can see from the ticker at the bottom of the blog, today it's been one month and three weeks since Sofia was born & we said good-bye. It still feels like it was yesterday to me. The Cord We are connected, My child and I, by An invisible cord Not seen by the eye. It's not like the cord That connects us 'til birth This cord can't been seen By any on Earth. This cord does it's work Right from the start. It binds us together Attached to my heart. I know that it's there Though no one can see The invisible cord From my child to me. The strength of this cord Is hard to describe. It can't be destroyed It can't be denied. It's stronger than any cord Man could create It withstands the test Can hold any weight. And though you are gone, Though you're not here with me, The cord is still there But no one can see. It pulls at my heart I am bruised...I am sore, But this cord is my lifeline As never before. I am thankful that God Connects us this way A mother and child Death can't take it away!
