Pregnancy after loss is nothing short of terrifying. It takes nothing to worry to me these days, but already she does her best to ease my mind with her active kicks & stretches as if to say, "don't worry mama, I'm great!" Thank you baby girl. But still, we welcome any and all prayers of health and wellness!
As you may realize, the coming weeks & months not only bring us the joy and delight of welcoming our third child, but the anniversary date of having lost our first. This is not the circle of life I could have ever, ever imagined. One thing we've noticed over the past 10 months is that life "highs" are heavily weighted by the aching "low" of not having Isabelle here to share them with us. She should be here to welcome her little sister. She should be here to enjoy in big brother/big sisterhood with Sebastian. These days have been heavy; a twisted root of fear, grief, joy & hope.
Together with Richard and Sebastian, we want nothing more than to spend the next couple of weeks (or three, as accurate as due dates go!) inward, together as a family unit, peacefully yet eagerly awaiting the arrival of the newest member of our family. So with that in mind, I'm signing off for a bit. We will be back with news and updates when the time feel right. Book deliveries are set through Isabelle's 4th birthday, and we will of course continue to keep you updated with those.
But for now, we will just be.
Thank you, each and every one of you, for your continued support and love.
Kelley & Richard
