TWO YEARS AGO…

Two years ago today we welcomed a miracle into our lives…

1-9

and we have never been the same since.

She was our little princess…

who taught us so many amazing lessons.

That it’s okay to be different…..

that size doesn’t matter….

and she taught my kids not only how to be a great big sister..

and big brother….

but more importantly, that eternity is at hand.  The kids are much more aware of our final goal in this life, to be with Jesus in heaven.  They say, “I bet she’s dancing on the golden road and snuggling with God and great grandma.”

This is not our home..

and boy am I thankful for that!!

 For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our city in heaven, which is yet to come.  With Jesus’ help, let us continually offer our sacrifice of praise to God by proclaiming the glory of his name.   Hebrews 13:14&15

What I wouldn’t give for one more snuggle…

or one more time smelling that fluffy hair..

Juliet Faith Lundeen, you’re life served a BIG purpose!

Know that your Mommy and Daddy and brothers and sister miss you like crazy.

every. day.

We love you to pieces and pray that Jesus wraps his arms a little tighter around you tonight as He tucks you in.  And we may just pray He does the same for us.

Thank you Jesus for using this precious girl in a big way, and for the hope we have in knowing we get to squeeze her again.  As Kynlee would say, “I can’t wait to go to heaven…..but we have to get really really old first right mom?”  I’m praying so little lady, I’m praying so.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.  Romans 15:13

HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY JU JU B!!!

You are never far from our hearts.

    I just read your post about your precious daughter. Our family had a special gift too. Charlie was 15 months when he went to be with the Lord. He was born with many physical and mental difficulties. We learned so many things while he was alive too. Our family and our church family became closer to the Lord and to each other because of Charlie. He lived longer that the doctors predicted and we cherish each day that he was with us. Juliet Faith and Charlie are perfectly whole now and safe in the arms of Jesus. Some day, we will go to the Lord and will be with them again. Thanks for sharing your family and your faith.

    So glad I found out how to read the rest of her story! Of course I need a tissue now! Memories of our own Trisomy 18 daughter come flooding back. Precious daughters, perfectly fulfilling their life’s purpose in our lives. Yes, heaven and the yearning for it became very real with her birth. The understanding and compassion gifted with profound loss is invaluable even though the price is high. How comforting to cling to Jeremiah 29:11 and know that their lives were not a mistake but allowed by a loving Father that only has our BEST in mind. Thank you for sharing your story!

    Hello! I just found your blog today and saw your heartwarming post about sweet little Juliet Faith. What an absolutely beautiful baby. My heart ached with you as I read your post. What a great reunion indeed when you are able to snuggle that little one and smell her sweet fluffy hair, and hold her in your arms again. My own arms ached for your loss…..may Father in Heaven send the greatest blessings, peace and joy to your family as you look forward to the day when you are all reunited. Families ARE Forever!!

    Happy birthday in heaven, Jules! Prayers for you all!

  6. I found your story this time last year. I was so heart broken for you and your family with the whole situation. But so inspired and encouraged, by your faithfulness, and ever presence faith in God that He holds everything and everyone in the palm of his hand. The way you walked through this increased my faith (and I’ve been a believer my whole life). I get teary eyed with joy thinking of day you will be re-united with your precious baby girl, when we all go “home” someday!!! Thanks for sharing, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Juliet!!!
