We have returned from our journey to the Bible lands…and what an interesting trip it was! It was very different than we had expected, but what isn’t a surprise these days??!! Life has done nothing but surprise us and send us in a direction that we have never even dreamed about.

I’d like to take one more opportunity to thank all of you who have supported us and those of you who continue to hold us up. This is by far our worst nightmare and it feels like we’ve tasted a bit of hell—agony, suffering, pain. I’m sure glad we don’t have to experience this for eternity. It’s funny how life circumstances change our perspectives on life. Sometimes people think that once someone changes their mind on a topic they suddenly become hypocrites. I beg to differ…life happens and we learn and grow. Right now I cant say we’ve learned a whole lot and quite honestly I don’t care to learn anything…we miss Jane, we’re still grieving her loss, and are still thinking about her nonstop. But I’ll tell ya what- Heaven never sounded sooooo good!!! So, here we are, complete wrecks and transparent to the world taking one day at a time, even one moment at a time. We’re learning to accept the “new” me and find a “new” normal for us both. Yes, Jane will have a brother or sister one day- God willing… Yes, Jane is in a better place… Yes, Jane is no longer suffering…. I get all that. The thing about wounds, though, is that they heal, but deep cuts always leave a scar…a reminder of when we fell, a surgery we had, or the loss of our beloved child- Jane. So NOW and ALWAYS we will anticipate Christ’s return (more than we ever have before) and the day we get to reign with Him…where I no longer ache and suffer and I get to experience pure bliss like I did the 37 weeks Jane was in my womb and the 7 weeks that she lived and brought splendor to our life. ¬†And ultimately see our Jane again.

With love,

Daniel & Elisabeth

    Dearest Daniel & Elisabeth, You are not forgotten, I still read Janes Blog when I want to be close to her and read your thoughts and how Jane kept us on the edge of our seats, what a fighter she was! i am SO PROUD of how you both handled your lives with Jane, I was able to witness you when as a family you were huddled in prayer with Jane, all touching one another, that melted my heart, was so beautiful! continue to hold yourselfs up in prayer! I know you are still in much pain and suffering, and God allows that, but only for a time. Then he wants us to gird our loins and to go on and be stronger. And only you know that timing in your life. We are here for you always, we share your loss, hurts, frustrations and deeply care for you and what you have experienced in these past months. God Bless you with Comfort, Peace, Love, Unity, Patience, Guardian Angel, Wisdom and Your Health to carry on your lives, and Strength to endure each new day. Love, Mom K

    I just stumbled across your blog and realized that during her life I had the great honor of meeting Jane. My twins were born at St. Joe’s on Jan. 16th and during Jane’s first days at CHOC, she was my daughter, Angela’s, neighbor. I vividly remember sitting between our daughters for many, many hours. I remember being amazed at the look of peace on Jane’s face, despite all the tubes in her little body. My son, Andrew, was 3 lbs., 3 ozs., and I pondered how God could put all the ingredients of life in a package as small as he and Jane. My husband and I remarked to each other at the time how inspirational we thought you both were as parents. We wondered if we could bring the grace and wisdom you two showed to the care of our children. We didn’t know all that you faced, but in our brief conversations (about our babies, C-section recovery) you impressed us with your strength.

    My deepest condolences on Jane’s death. We will hold you in our hearts. Our lives are richer from having met your family. Thank you –

    Rachel Norris
