Thinking of you all; you are such wonderful parents and continue to celebrate your children in such an incredible way! I know you'd rather have them with you but you glorify their memories!! Take Care; you continue on in my prayers!

Hi Kristi -

I don't know if you'll remember me; I worked nights at Medical City PICU with you for awhile. You and Shawn Purkey (mostly Shawn) used to tease me because I was so liberal, while you guys were more conservative.

I have thought about you every single day for the past year or so. I found out last summer (June of 2009) that I was going to have my first baby. We had had terrible fertility problems, so naturally I was overjoyed. But terrified, too. I had heard through the grapevine about your beautiful daughter, so there was an icy fear in my heart ... and then I followed your blog about your precious son ... and my heart just broke for you.

I just realized that you can do everything right - for having known you, even slightly, I know you did everything exactly right - and still be touched by tragedy. I was scared, even when my son was born just fine, I was scared.

But I've realized that I have to cherish and remember every single precious moment with my son so that if I ever do have to give him up, I'll at least have that. And I have to hope that if I do ever have to give him up, that I can handle it with as much grace as you have.

I am not religious, but every day I think about and your family. You all have given me a tremendous gift in teaching me to appreciate what I have. I wish all good things for you in the future.

I was working in the flowerbeds on 7/27/10, and the yard was filled with hundreds of dragonflies. It made me think of your sweet babies. Maybe Grayson sent them in celebration of Kinsey's birthday.

I was thinking of Kinsey and Grayson completely out of the blue today! They are just precious and will always hold a special place in my heart... even with never having met them, or you both. And while I have followed others who have gone through similar experiences, I have never felt so connected to the children I have "met" on here. I think their spirit still lives on strongly in others.
Miss your updates (even when they're about football) ;)!

I was just thinking of you and wanted to wish you a Happy Holiday. May this new year ahead bring your family god's blessing. I pray he will be good to your family and bring you a miracle healthy baby. Heidi
