It’s Been Awhile and Some Things Have Happened


It’s been awhile since I’ve last posted. Long story short, we went through 3 rounds of IVF and had two beautiful little boys in the last 4 years. Life was busy in the most beautiful way. We were busy growing our family. Tragedy struck shortly after and we haven’t been the same since. 


I wasn’t sure how to share this and it’s really difficult for me to share, but this past October we lost our precious 9 month old son to a ruptured brain aneurysm. Renner was such a blessing and his memory remains so. Our hearts are broken without him here and we intend to live in honor of him. He was a beautiful boy, both inside and out. I miss his red hair and blue eyes. I miss his smell and his voice. His smile and laugh echo through my mind daily. He had a kindness about him that made me feel seen and safe. Big brother, Reacher, misses him so much. They were the best of friends from the moment they met in the hospital. Soul mates. Our lives have been forever changed without him here.  We are in disbelief and heartbroken.

I’m not sure how to go on from here, but taking it day by day has seemed to get us by as we navigate our new reality.

I want to thank everyone for their love, support, prayers and kindness. Our family appreciates each of you. Especially during this time.

In loving memory of our sweet Renner,

RL

    Awwww…God bless you and your family. Renner is still with you all mentally and emotionally. As a mother, I just want to say, take all the time you need to cry, whenever you want. Even if you have 10 more children, Renner can never be replaced and that is a void that I wish no one had to ever feel. Keep him alive by blogging about him and loss. You could support so many women that may not be as strong as you are. Be blessed smart beauty
