Dear Jules’…

Hey sweet baby girl,

I can hardly believe that it’s already been 1 week since you left us, although some days it’s seems like a  lifetime ago that I got to hold you, kiss your sweet cheeks and feel your fuzzy hair.  I have never been more curious about heaven and what you are doing at this very moment.  I’m sure you are twirling and singing, just like your sister loves to do:)  Your daddy said it took awhile to get used to seeing me without you in my arms.  I’m so glad I was able to let the world stop, and just sit, stare at your beautiful face, and snuggle you.  What I wouldn’t give for one more day!

Love you baby girl!


This picture gets me to smile everytime!

    What a beautiful picture of one of Lord Jesus’s precious, precious creations. Though I never knew her or you, Lord Jesus has touched my heart through hearing about Jules’s sweet life story. Thank you for being a Proverbs 31 MOM to your children and a God-fearing daughter…”Her children arise and call her blessed;…” Prov. 31:28 “but I will not forget you. See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands.” Isaiah 49:16 Jules is in the presence of her awesome Saviour now. And I, too, believe she is twirling and dancing and laughing and with the sweetest twinkle in her little eyes, praise is on her tiny lips. I have also read the book “Heaven” by Randy Alcorn. It is worth reading when you have some spare time.

    Jules has deeply touched the hearts of many, and the faith of your family has done so as well. May the tears shed by all, cleanse your pain. We all loved her, and have come away with renewed faith and respect. Thank you so much for sharing her with us.

    what a beautiful spiritual journey that inspires us all to love with all our hearts. thanks, prayers, and best wishes to you and Jules. For Jules’ young relatives in particular, I imagine that witnessing this experience will shape how they approach the rest of their lives.

    OH, that picture is so adorable, that little fuzzy hair, she is dancing and twirling and having a grand time without any O2 too. What a loving mom and dad and family she had. Take Care

    So sorry for your loss, I can’t even imagine. But God is always good and the lives that were touched by her are all God’s work! If you want to know more about what heaven is really like I recommend “Heaven” By Randy Alcorn. There is a video series that goes with it. I have learned so much about heaven that I didn’t know before and it’s all scriptures based. Heaven is going to be awesome and will be even greater to be reunited with loved ones!

    Just wanted to say how beautiful I find your story and little Jule’s! I’ve been following your blog for a couple months now( stumbled on it when I googled “distressing furniture” :) ) and in a world where babies are aborted without second thought, healthy or otherwise, I just find your testimony such an encouragement and so , so beautiful! God gave you such grace and courage to care and love even when the outcome looked dismal. God bless you, Ryan , and your sweet little family as you enter the holiday season with loss . I’m praying he’ll hold your family close! God’s grace is sufficient!
    Love, Donella

    God Bless You, and thank you for sharing your precious daughter with us. I watched the video last evening with my daughter and Mom. I cryed the whole way through. Thank you for being a wonderful example of courage, love and faith in God for all who follow your story. I imagine her dancing with all the baby Angels in heaven right now, some who belong to my family too. I think of those who have no belief in God and wonder how they get through these difficult times. Praying for peace and joy for your family this Thanksgiving!

    Funny how we miss her so. Thank you for letting us into your lives. My daughter (who they thought had Edward Syndrome but it was confirmed negative with amniocentesis) and I grew to love Jules through your posts and we are so sad she’s no longer with us but happy she is with the Lord. I was showing my friend pictures of Jules the other day and said “I just want to snuggle her” and my 10-year-old daughter said, “but you can’t anymore, mom” :( So true and so sad. I’m sorry for your loss. Still praying for you and your family and all the other families out there struggling with losing their precious children.

    Thank you.

    <3 Michelle xoxo

    this brings tears to my eyes…I can’t imagine what you must be going through right now. Praying for you!

    We miss her so much, the kids talk about her constantly. Damien told his friend last night ALL about baby Jules and that she’s in Heaven now, he went on and on! :) so sweet-she has left a lasting memory on her cousins that’s for sure!
