Fifteen months ago we welcomed Cohen into this world. I can’t believe the 15 months we’ve had. I really can’t believe the almost two years we’ve had, from finding out I was pregnant with Cohen on October 3, 2009 to finding out about his little heart on February 11, 2010. That list goes on, of course. Cohen was born on June 7, 2010 and went to Heaven on June 18, 2010. I became pregnant with Knox & Sloane on December 18th-ish, 2010 and they were born on August 19, 2011. It blows my mind… God’s plan, that is.
There is really just no way to wrap my mind around most of it. Cohen and Knox & Sloane are about 14 1/2 months apart. I think we have had them all because of one another. It’s hard to think about how tough it is sometimes that Cohen isn’t here, but we are so thankful Knox & Sloane are. Then, to think well if Cohen were still here Knox and Sloane might not be, but honestly, we have no idea. Our plan unfolded the way it was supposed to and though our hearts were so very broken with the loss of Cohen, we have been abundantly blessed with more beautiful children.
We will continue to celebrate Cohen’s little life and him being part of our lives and plan.
(This was about half an hour after Cohen was born)
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had all kinds of questions about our past few years but thankfully, I keep falling back on the important facts. I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27
of course, I always think to myself…these children.
