The Birthday Girl

Eleven years ago at this very moment, I had been a mom for a whole 7 hours or so. I will never forget the first time I saw you- especially the head full of dark hair you had. I was overwhelmed with both incredible love and fear. I didn’t really know if I had what […]

Hearts for Hannah #5

    Our sweet Hannah would have been 9 years old on February 15th. So very hard to wrap my mind around. I often wonder what she would look like…how her personality may or may not have changed…how she would have loved school…how very different life would be. For those of you who may have […]


It’s that time again… Hearts 4 Hannah launch!

Dear friends… If you have been with us on this journey for awhile, you may remember that February 15th was Hannah Grace’s birthday. She will have been EIGHT this year… I really can’t even wrap my mind around that. It makes me so sad and yet so full of joy that we can honor her […]
