Dear Bridget,
Prayers for you--it was a hard day--the Lands' End catalog definitely would have sent me over the edge... :(

I kinda know how hard that feels ((hugs))

Can't stop crying but I understand fully! The real hard part is when the Lord takes back one of the children you do have.

Hugs and prayers to you. It's all good but it's not all easy. xo

I hope you kept the crib and a high chair. I still use the crib and high chair that we got for David 41+ years ago. There are now 16 grandchildren that are using my "FIRST" baby equipment. In our time - when you gave away the high chair, you got pregnant!!!

Love to your famiily - Grandma Kummet

oh (((Bridget))) I am with you. Maria turned 3 in Feb. Although, I don;t know what is more tortuous: I kind of got rid of things in "trickles, a little bag here and there, and I spread it all around, to many different families. often what I did is keep a target-sized bag in the car with some clothes/baby shoes/receiving blankets, etc in it. whatever family I ran into first from homeschooling groups or church who had a baby girl was "gifted" on the spot!
I would be sobbing too if I had done it all at once. that sounds very painful.
praying for you.
love,lisa

Dear Bridget,
I have been shedding these same tears the last 3 months...not as much now, but there are moments.
Now a very tiny EvaMaria is wearing our little baby clothes with very grateful parents(Godparents of 2 of our girls) looking to us for more than just cradles and clothes...
Prayers for young faithfilled families just beginning...and for us 'veterans'.
Oh, Bridget! I SO feel for you now!

That's a drag. I think I have hit that realization too. In some ways, I am kind of looking forward to having more flexibility than you do with little people. My youngest is 7 1/2. Sometimes I feel old. Sometimes I feel sad and that I still have alot to give. Then the older ones remind me that the "alot I have to give" can still go to them just in different ways. Hang in there. When God closes a door, He opens a window.
