The last few years, I have chosen a word for the year.  The first year it was hope.  I needed hope that we would get through the year after Willow’s death.  Last year, the word was faith.  I needed to have faith that we would get to bring our rainbow home.  This year, I am choosing grateful.  I want to purposefully choose to be grateful each day.  I want to enjoy the moments at home with the boys.  I want to be grateful, that I get to watch Ian grow and learn each day.  I need to remind myself how grateful I am for my family that supports us and my friends that I can lean on.  2012 was an amazing year and I feel so blessed.   I look forward to what 2013 has in store for us.

I started following your other blog a few weeks ago and I was excited to see that your rainbow baby had arrived safely. It looks like you are enjoying every minute with him :)

Hi Stacey!
I just came across your blog today and read your story about your beautiful Willow. I wanted to send you a message because I also had a baby with Triploidy. Her name is Savannah Rae and you can read her story at www.sweetsavannahknits.com . Our stories are very much alike so I thought I would share. Take care!!
