A Sudden Appearance

The summer of 2012 we were newly married, new homeowners, and found ourselves pregnant with our first baby. Twelve weeks into the pregnancy we were told our baby was “incompatible with life.” Her story is how this blog originally started, as a way to keep our friends and family updated. We spent the remainder of our pregnancy praying, crying, and learning so much about God and ourselves and the amazing community we had been placed in. After 37 weeks our beautiful baby made her sudden appearance and we held her in our arms for one incredible, life-changing hour.

God has since awoken in me a passion for pregnancy and babies and encouraging women through both the normal experiences of pregnancy and doing my best to instill hope in others in the darkest of situations.

Please allow me to share my baby’s short life with you through her story found by following the Pippy’s Journey category of this blog. Her story begins here.
