I had to name my angels to get closure on their losses. My son was convinced he was getting a sister, so after the first m/c I chose a girl's name. We had testing on the second and found out it was a boy. God made it clear to me back in January that we need to have another child. I used that to choose the names. Iris Joanna (rainbow/God's promise, grace of the Lord) and John David (God is gracious/merciful, beloved).

Since I lost mine so close together and never really took time to grieve for Iris, I definitely am grieving them both now. That may be why I'm having such a hard time with it. I think everyone grieves differently and that's OK.
