Remembering Miriam Noel
Last month we took a Saturday and went to Miriam's grave. As most of you know, this was the one year anniversary of our little girl's home-going. At a regular ultrasound, we first learned that she had some real physical issues. The next month was a roller coaster of emotions as we tried to do everything we could to save her life. We visited several specialists, but she was not destined to live on this earth. She was a trisomy baby, which means she had severe chromosomal disorders. After she passed away, I was induced and delivered her. It was a special moment to hold her and say good-by. I don't need to tell you that our family has definitely experienced God's grace in a real way. Having a stillbirth, I know what it is like to be carried by God. He is so faithful to heal and to comfort. We know that we will see her along with the other 2 babies we have in heaven.
