Future of Blog

This blog began as a way for Jeremy and I to disseminate information about Lizzy Ann's progress/condition but it became much more than that for me. It became the place where I typed out my many emotions through a very difficult pregnancy and ultimately my saddest moments after we lost Lizzy Ann.

At this point, I am unsure as to the direction of the blog and have prayed about what it's purpose is now. Many many many people read our blog during my pregnancy for various reasons but mostly because they had hope that God would deliver us from the nightmare we were living. When a miracle didn't happen for us, I believe that many people quit reading simply because they felt it was over.... The End. Well, it was really just the beginning for us and now we (actually I) feel like I'm writing a blog that has no purpose now other than to vent my sadness at varying intervals.

I'm praying that God will tell me what I need to do from here but if you are still reading, please pray for us to find purpose in this confusing time.

I hope that you all had a great Christmas and New Year. We wish we could say our's was great but we made it and are trying to continue moving forward.
Love to you all


  1. Still here and praying for you both. Love to you.

  2. i know you don't know me - but i actually found your blog via a facebook group. my husband and i lost our first daughter, maddox elise, february 2009. i started our blog to keep everyone up to date with her progress and my appointments. i now use the blog to journal feelings - especially going through the "firsts" - christmas, thanksgiving, and coming soon her birthday... you aren't writing to "no one" i can assure you. God can and does use blogs to witness to others. You never know who might be reading your story and get such the inspiration or hope they need to carry on!!! i hope you continue to write...i'll be reading!

  3. I find that blogging can offer therapy- by posting your feelings, you can find relief. I am praying and reading- but please don't feel like you are alone... because your not. God bless you!

  4. I check your blog to see if you have written and I pray for you guys everyday. You will continue to be in my prayers, blog or not, but I hope you keep blogging.

  5. Still reading, still praying, still loving the awesome Staffords!!!

  6. We lost our precious son Dec.13,07. I still read your blog. And pray for you, Jeremy, and Lizy Ann!

  7. I just found your blog today, January 18, 2009. I am 32 weeks pregnant with our son who has been diagnoised with BRA. It is a comfort to me to read how other families have dealt or are dealing with this situation. It helps me feel that I am not alone in this and seeing your strength gives me strength. Please do not stop writing. Even though you do not know me, you are helping me more than you will ever know!

  8. Emily, I am praying in earnest for you and your precious son. Please email me at if you would like to chat a little more in depth.
