Eleven Months

We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting. ~Joseph Campbell

How true this quote is. It doesn't mean we must let go of Sofia or her memory, rather we must let go the life that we planned with her. She will always be in our life, just not as we had planned. That won't stop us from thinking through all the "what if's" but in time it might get easier. We must also make room for the life that is now and the life that is coming with this baby.

In one month it will have been a year since we lost Sofia. Tim & I were discussing it yesterday and how fast the time has flown.  Tim said today that he knows she is always with us but it still hurts that she isn't here actually with us. I think it always will. Last night I held the framed photo by my bed of me holding Sofia in the hospital. No matter how many times I look at her I can't get over all the hair and how cute she was/is. That "empty arms" feeling has not gone away.  I want to hold HER again. Not just a baby- HER.

Miss you & love you, Sofia Rose. XXOOXXOO


  1. It's hard to believe how quickly the time has passed, isn't it?

    Sofia IS so beautiful.

    I feel you on the desire to hold her- I feel it with him, too.
