Jacqueline Ward Images

So this morning I found myself really eager to see the pictures we had made of Hope right after she was born,so I emailed Jackie and asked her if she could send me just one of them so I could get a sneak peek. They're not supposed to be ready for 3 weeks but by tonight, she had already sent me three! This one was my favorite. We are so grateful that there are organizations like Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep that do this for people. Nothing means more to us than to have these wonderful memories of our beautiful little girl. You can see Jackie's website by clicking on the link to the left.

Tomorrow we're supposed to go to the funeral home and make all the arrangements. We are not looking forward to this, as this was one of the hardest things we had to do when we lost Chloe. But we are getting a lot of help from the church with the service. I want to thank Mrs. Becky for everything she's doing for us. She's supposed to go decorate the gazebo for us, and she made arrangements for us to have a gathering at the church afterwards. We have had so much support through all of this, it really helps a lot knowing we have so many people there for us. My poor mom, we've been running her ragged. She's been busy running all the food over here that people are making us, and picking up pictures for us, and really whatever we need. Thanks Mom.

Everyone is still invited to the Memorial Service being held at Memory Park on Tuesday at 10. Thank you again for all the prayers and support. Tomorrow's going to be a rough day...


  1. and what a precious picture it is.My sincere,heartfelt condolences to you both and to all the rest of your family.You and baby Hope will remain in my thoughts and prayers for a very long time.

  2. What a tiny precious blessing! I continue to have you and your daughters in my thoughts and prayers. Just think, how great is God, Hope is healed and whole and in Jesus' arms smiling down on you at this very moment along with her sister Chloe! You have two very special and beautiful guardian angels now and I know they will take good care of you!

  3. Beautiful photo! Yep. I think that NILMDTS and others like it are just such a blessing to families! I loved the picture of her in the last post with the little white & pink socks too. You'll have to post some of her scrapbook too. What a great way to honor your daughter & work through the grief at the same time.....

  4. Hope,

    May you dance with the angels,
    May you laugh with your sister,
    May you always play in your mama's dreams.
