The Story of Emmie-Rose

This is the story of a little girl that came into this world way ahead of schedule. Now fighting day by day until she can be home with her family. This is Emmie's story. From 23 weeks old on...

Sep 27 - Still Here.

Stephanie and I hanging in there.
Our hearts are aching but we keep going.
Our other little ones need our love and attention too.

The business of living has set in again...
Trips to Sam's Club for groceries, cooking at home,
Lowes for around the home stuff, mowing the grass
and yard work at home, helping Z with homework
etc for school.

I start back to work full time on Sunday morning 10/1/06 after
being off on FMLA for weeks now.

All the things we stopped 66 days ago have started
once again. Seems strange after living
between the hospital and home for all that time.

M and B keep asking Mommy and I when we are going to
bring Emmie-Rose home. I start to cry every time we tell
them she is in heaven now with Jesus.

Thank you sooo much for all the words of love and support.
Emmie-Rose touched the hearts of so many people.


Chris & Stephanie

    Thank you so much for the update. I understand completely about the routine. I was so used to checking this blog every day. Emmie-Rose had become such a part of my day in her short lifetime. I know others here feel the same. Thank you for sharing Emmie-Rose, she was an angel. My continued Blessings and Prayers for your family.

    Thanks for the update. It must seem really odd to go back to the old routine after all that's happened.

    I'm sure Emmie-Rose is watching over you now with love. She was very special to so many...

    Please take care of yourselves and your little ones. I wish you all the best!

    Oh Chris and Stephanie

    this part is so hard. I have been there. Life keeps moving and you just want it to stop for a bit.

    My heart goes out to you and your little ones. My daughters were 4 and 8 1/2 months when their sister died. It was so hard some days but God got us thru it. He will see you thru it too and Emmie-Rose is watching and helping you along the way.

    Take it one day at a time and on the days you can't do anything then don't. Tomorrow will come and you will do more.

    God bless!

    Stephanie and Chris,

    You all still remain in my thoughts. It was nice hearing that you all are doing ok. What helped me was not to look to much into the future it hurt to much. So I just lived for today and one hour , min etc whatever it took to get through it.

    I also kept a journal and wrote in it to my baby in Heaven. It really helped to put it out on paper. Plus when we moved away from her we made a memorial outside for her. I painted a large boulder in memory to her and put it next to a angel. So whenever I see it I would think about her. Also for awhile I had a collage of all her things up on the wall.

    You both will find your own way through this. But only time will heal the pain.

    I just wanted you to know that you have all touched my life. I had been reading the blog for a couple weeks when I got busy, and decided to check on it today. I was devastated with the news. I know the only comfort is that your little girl has grown wings and is feeling no pain. Please know that you are being thought of.

    I can't thank you enough for the courage you two have shown to the world and for sharing your precious angel with the rest of us.

    Chris and Stephanie, I continue to send my thoughts and prayers to you and your family. God bless you!

    I stumbled across this blog today. And although I couldn't read it all I did read many enteries. There is no pain greater then teh loss of a child no matter how young or how old. I am so sorry your family went through this. The one thing that stands out for me is that she passed away on my son's birthday. It kinda made me think of the ircle of life and how bizzare it really is. I hope you are able to get through this. YOu are doing a good thing by writing feelings down. Be sure your other children have the ability to mourn and perhaps see councilors (depending on their ages) Emmie sure was a fighter though, to be born so early she did put out a good fight. I know you enjoyed all teh sweet littel memories you had with her. Don't even let the memories of her tiny hand on your finger and her littel expessions leave your hearts.
