To My Precious Little Baby

To my precious little baby,

You weren’t with us long, but oh how much you were loved by your Daddy and I. We were amazed to see your heart beating at only 6 weeks. When we got the news yesterday (at 8.5 weeks) that you had left us to live in heaven, we were overwhelmed with sadness that we would not get to hold you in our arms. But know that we hold you in our hearts and I know that you are with your Creator who has called you by name even before your birth and He loves you even more than we do. Because of this hope, I know that we will meet again in heaven. Until then, we love you.

I had five private postings over the last month regarding our pregnancy and its complications. I have made them public now that our family knows what is going on. They can be found by clicking on the “Our Second Child” Category.

    Oh, Amber. I’m so so sorry you have lost your littlest one. Once a baby enters your heart there’s always a spot there for him or her. My prayers are with you as you recover both physically and emotionally.

  3. Kristi says:

    Amber, thanks for opening up this part of your life and heart. We are praying for you all every day–even every hour right now. I hope you have a special Thanksgiving, despite everything. I’m glad your family’s coming.

    Beautiful! Our little one is with Jesus! And called by name. What a precious thought!

    Have a special day as you get ready for your family.

    We miss you.

    Amber! I’m so sorry. Thank you for sharing your beautiful layout. What a wonderful verse to hold tight to. ((Hugs)) to you and Greg.

    Amber, I’m so sorry to hear this news about you. I know that my friends who have experienced the same thing feel better talking about it and they always have a special place in their heart for the little one they never had a chance to really know. I pray that you are able to heal from everything and am so glad that you have such a strong, sensitive, and supportive husband to help you through it. Adrianna is so sweet too and so sensitive to her mommy’s feelings – that is something to be so proud of! Love, Jen

    I just came to your blog, via Julie’s, and wanted to add my prayers to those here. And the many others that are surely with you.

    I’m so sorry Amber. reading through your blog made my heart heavy and cry sypathetic tears. I am so sorry for your pain. Javi and I had a miscarriage before Ethan and it was a really hard time for me. I dont think I expected it to be so hard or to love the baby so much after only a couple of weeks. I know people say that you are young and can have more but the pain of losing ‘this one’- the one you love already- is still very real. I just wanted to let you know that I am sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers. Love, Jamie

    Amber, my thoughts and prayers are with you. So Sorry for your loss

  10. Gina says:


    I am so sorry for your loss. I know this precious little life that God gave you for a short time means so very much. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers. I also miscarried before Elijah and it was difficult. Our little ones can play together in heaven. How exciting to meet them someday! Love you! Gina

  11. Karen Davis says:

    We didn’t really talk about the baby, as we didn’t want to bring you any pain during thanksgiving, but Zach and I are really sorry for your loss and are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. I cried when I heard the news and read all the blogs about our neice or nephew just now. Love you guys!

  12. Angela says:

    Oh, Amber. I am so so sorry. My heart aches for you. I will pray for your heart, and your hubby’s too. I’m so sorry for your loss! Praying Jesus will hold you and your sweet baby close today…
