|Lacie Jo with newly born Gracie Leigh and Me.|
When I found out I was pregnant I struggled a lot. Lacie was one of the first people we told and she supported me through it all. I had a lot of opposition, especially amongst family, about my pregnancy but I always had a shoulder to lean on with Lacie. We always joke that I named Gracie after Lacie :) Gracie has loved Lace since the very beginning of her life.
As I sit here and hold my beautiful little ten month old baby I can't help but choke back the tears. My heart is just breaking. This wonderful woman I have told you about has gone through more in her short 25 years than anyone I personally know. She has not only had to bury one child, but two. It breaks my heart to think of the pain and turmoil she has had to suffer. I feel like Lacie deserves to be a mother more than any woman I know. She is already to a mother to so many. She takes care of everyone's children as if they were her own children. It takes a special woman to do that.
I don't know what the Lord has planned for Lace. Sometimes, when I pray for her, I just wonder why someone would have to go through all of this. She must be being prepared for something miraculous. She already is miraculous. What I do know is that her angel babies are waiting for her. They were born on this earth perfect and they returned to Heavenly Father just as perfect. They were more righteous that this world was prepared for. They didn't need to be tested because they were elect spirits of God. So why must it hurt so bad? I wish I would take some of the pain away for Lacie. She doesn't deserve the heartache and trials. So all I can do is pray and ask that you all pray too. Pray for Lacie and Tayce. They are two of the most gentle, kindhearted people you would ever meet in your life. Know that if asked, they would do the same for you.
