Jodie, this was very touching. I'm so glad that you have felt and feel the comfort and peace that you do. Having the gospel through hard times really is a wonderful thing. May you continue to feel comforted from the Lord.

I'm just so glad for the times when you let yourself be happy without feeling guilty about it. The pictures are beautiful and your words were just right too. I got really teary-eyed seeing the picture of you taking care of her with the nurse nearby. The bond that the Lord gives to parents and their children is amazing - we don't even have to really know them to adore them. Wow, can you imagine what it will be like when you get to meet her again!?

Thank you so much for sharing all that your have been through on this journey with Anna. If Carver had been a girl I wanted to use the name Anna so when you first posted that was her name, it sort of made your experience that much more real for me to watch you go through. You are amazing and I'm so grateful for the Peace you have felt from our Heavenly Father and grateful for the testimony of it that you've shared in Anna's blog. I hope other mother's who have lost or are losing their sweet babies too soon like this somehow find their way to Anna's blog because I think it would provide them a great deal of hope and comfort.

That was absolutely beautiful. I want to thank you for sharing something so special with us. I couldn't help but feel the love you have for Anna through your writing, I know she's looking down on you and smiling. Keep the faith, you're in my prayers!

Love,

Oh, my dear sweet Jodie.
I am feeling for you. I can't imagine how you're feeling, but I know now that you are one of the strongest people I know. we are due with a baby in 7 weeks, and I can't help but think that our children are friends right now in the spirit world. you are amazing, and each day, the Lord will make you stronger and happier. thankyou for sharing your thoughts with us, you have made us appreciate life so much more and helped to remind me that the Lord is in control of everything. your family is always in our prayers.

Jodie, Thank you so much for sharing this most intimate part of your life. We are truly blessed to have the knowledge of the gospel and of Heavenly Father's perfect plan. What an honor that you and Adrian were chosen to be Anna's parents. I pray for your continued healing and comfort.

Jodie,
I don't think I've posted any comments yet, for fear that you probably wouldn't remember me, or want me to follow your beautiful story. But I have been reading, almost daily. I really hope you don't mind.
I just wanted to say thank you for sharing. I'm glad I was able to read along and share my own feelings about it. I'm glad you're doing well and I'm glad you're on the road to recovery.
I love you,
Love,

Thank you for the sweet thoughtful letter that you sent to me. As soon as i read it i read your blog.
I cant stop crying. Tim will look at me with sad eyes and say 'your tears will run out soon, im sure of it'. Its a daily thing. its comforting to know that i am not alone in this and that others know how i feel. The anger and frustration then the sadness and comfort that comes is all very overwhelming. It hurts so much, i hate that when i got to hold my son and daughter that no one was going to give them CPR or try to help them, that they were going to die in my arms, for no reason. I know that everything happens for a reason and one day we will know the reason. thanks again
