Several years ago when Ron and I moved to Washington we were introduced to a couple through a mutual friend. The friendship with the mutual friend has ended, but we have remained friends with the other couple. John and Jaime live in Olympia, not far from Seattle, where I was in the hospital. We were so blessed to have them in our life. They took time out of their busy life to come and visit me in the hospital on Tuesday night. Then when they heard that I was going to deliver on Wednesday they came right over to the hospital. They arrived about 20 minutes after Emily Faith was born and the spent the rest of the day with us. They had a chance to meet Emily and just be a support for both Ron and me through the whole day.
Today in the mail I received a package from Jaime. Inside was a little jewelry box and a necklace. On the necklace is a cross and an engraved circle with Emily Faith on one side and Forever and Always on the other side. I cried when I opened it, it was such a perfect gift. Here are several pictures of the necklace and the little box.
I am a 33 year old wife and mother of four little girls. Three who keep me busy ALL day EVERYDAY and one, Emily Faith who was born at 23 weeks due to a complete placental abruption. She was with us for 10 hours and then went to be with Jesus.
