Ironicially enough today would be the day about siblings (since today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day)...I only have one sibling, and that's my sister, Amy. Amy just turned 31 last Friday. She is married and the mother of 5...4 sons and a daughter on the way (due December 29th). Although Amy has 4 boys, only one of them is here on Earth. That is her 13 month old Spencer. She has triplet sons, Mateo, Ian and Anthony (after whom Mia is named), that live among the angels in Heaven. They were born May 6, 2008 and passed shortly thereafter. Amy fought for two weeks to keep them in, but after days of meds God had other plans and the boys were born at 23 1/2 weeks. Their short lives changed our family FOREVER!
Amy is a mommy, wife, Special Ed teacher, and all around amazing person! She and I were VERY close when we were little (I had to sleep in the same bed as her until an embarrassing age! :) Then in our teenage years we grew apart and fought CONSTANTLY! :) Now, we are close again as mommies and wives!
Please say a prayer for her today as the thoughts of her boys flood her mind (I'm sure they do every day, but today especially!!!)
Here is a pic of her and Mia...
