Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

This year will be extra sweet we are growing by one heartbeat.
John was getting lucky 
We weren't expecting the jackpot
Not quite Irish twins - 
they'll be 18 months apart

July 22, 2019
Emma will be five
Maximus will be 3 1/2
Maverick will be 1 1/2 
New baby will arrive.

Our cherry on top 
Our pot of gold at the end of the rainbow 
will arrive in July 2019.

We are surprised and feeling beyond blessed to welcome this gift from God into our lives. We miss Emma so much every day and this pregnancy is a roller coaster of emotions more than ever before. We are certain Emma has her hands in this, the baby is due on her birthday. We do not know how we are going to do it, 3 on Earth, 3 and under, but what is a little more chaos and a whole lot more love, we are ready to love on this little precious baby girl.

Ode to the Little Sister

Pretty in pink 
Birthdays in sync
A family of six in five years time
My how things have changed in our lives, hearts and minds
We have grown exponentially 
Hearts broken open for all to see
A sister in heaven, plus two big brothers to watch after you
They don't know what they are in for, they don't have a clue
You have tied up the sexes 2 boys now 2 girls 
I wonder, eyes blue or brown, hair dark or light, straight or with curls
A blessing from God that is clear to see
A perfect addition to our family
Emma always on our mind 
We are not leaving her behind
This precious little one we did not choose
Now all of Emma's things will get be used
Rainbows, tutus, butterflies 
I can not wait to look into my daughters eyes 
I will see the reflection of her big sister 
God how we miss her
But hope springs anew with this bump growing strong
I pray we get to meet you, it wont be very long. 
We are holding on to faith as much as we can
Every heartbeat check scary and uncertain 
On Earth we cannot wait to meet this little person.
Now we wait for your arrival
Our patience put on trial
There is a levity to this pregnancy 
An honor to carry Emma's twin flame 
Now we just need to pick out her name


Ruby Grace is her name. Ruby is her birthstone and Emma's. This baby girl is our precious gem. She is tough and strong like a ruby. She will be fierce and fiery. She will be a fighter and lover. She will be surrounded in love and protection.
