My Girls

Please continue to tell me how Janie Beth has touched your life. I really need these on hard days, which tends to be every Tuesday and Wednesday right now with a few more thrown in for good measure. :) I don't have much to say this morning, so I wanted to share pictures of my 2 beautiful girls.

Here is Janie Beth...

Here is Katie Jo at a couple weeks old...

Here is Janie Beth with Josiah's Janie Beth bear. Look at her hair!

Here is Katie Jo's head full of hair!! She is only a day or so old.

I don't have any more words because it will make the waterfall pour to think about the friends they would be and how Katie Jo would have taken care of Janie Beth.

Hold your precious ones closer today!!


  1. I certainly will hold my girls close today, Michelle. Janie Beth has made me so thankful for my babies. She touched more lives in her 22 hours than most of us touch in a lifetime! Love you!

  2. Michelle- she is beautiful- I love seeing more pictures of her... what a sweet picture of Janie Beth with Katie Jo!

    Janie Beth has touched both myself and my husband and our whole church. They ask for updates about you every week, and have been praying for you for over 2 months now. They celebrated with you as you had hours with Janie Beth and grieved with you to hear that she went home.

    Your faith has touched my husband very deeply and he told me that he prays that he can have the kind of faith that your family has one day. It takes a great deal to bring him to tears, but the faith that you showed through this blog has done just that.

    (((hugs))), I am still praying for you daily friend.

    Look at Katie Jo's hair! Wow, now that's a lot of hair. :) I can't get over how much her and Janie Beth favor. The shapes of their little chins and cheeks are almost identical. Just beautiful. I'm thinking about you guys this week. I'm working with a family through the foundation this week, and when I was called, I immediately thought about your strength and faith. You truly are such an inspiration.
