I will carry you all my life..

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I'm not
Truth is I'm barely hanging on
But there's a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says ...

I've shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

We have faith that we will get our rainbow!

  "In some circles, babies born to families after the loss of a child are referred to as "Rainbow Babies." The idea is that the baby is like a rainbow after a storm. "Rainbow Babies" is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope."
We know our angel Cali is watching over us & will bless us with a healthy baby someday. We have faith that we will get our rainbow!

Chris, Cait, & Cali

I just love how our names go so perfectly together.

-Spreading the awareness of the importance of Folic Acid-

Finding out that you are pregnant can be one of the happiest moments of your life but just think if at your first scan you were told that your child has a fatal condition that isn't compatible with life outside the womb?

Many women go through it and are heart broken by it. They are told that to prevent it happening in later pregnancies they should take a higher dose of folic acid - 5mg instead of 400mcg.

One question has always come to mind when I think of the time I was told this - why don't Doctors prescribe the higher dose to everyone to prevent these defects to start with as it is not harmful to mother or child, it is much more beneficial if anything.
