I know you were probably worried and wondering, so just wanted to briefly stop in......

I so don't really know what all I want to say at the moment. I just know that I wanted you all to know how much my family and I appreciate all the thoughts and prayers I know you all have been sending our way. We are doing as well as can be expected I suppose. I am recovering from the csection well, as far as physical healing goes. Emotionally, well that...I just can't say right now... I really just wanted to check in with you girls and let you all know that we are ok, just taking things literally one minute at a time. It is so hard and feels so empty. I am so heartbroken and I know that parts of that brokeness will never completely heal. I am sorry for not checking in sooner, it's just been very difficult. I have been on here off and on just checking on you all, though I haven't read any of the posts, as the emotions are very raw and some of it is very very hard to handle, I still just wanted to make sure that everyone was progressing the way they should and were healthy and doing well. And when I logged on tonight and saw the post about Ashley, my heart just broke all over again and my husband and I just could not believe it. We were just praying that no one else would have to endure the pain that we are going through. My whole being literally hurts for her. I know that I mentioned before that I wanted to post pictures of Gryffin when I was ready, and bless you all for wanting and encouraging me to share my sweet boy with all of you. I could not ask for a better group of ladies to call my friends. And that is what I consider all of you even though I have never met any of you in person. I am still not quite up to the task of getting everything required to get his pictures on here, but I will at some point.
I would also like to post his birth story and as well as the story of our farewell to our sweet baby boy and the pictures we have of that. I do not want to post anything that might make anyone uncomfortable, but they are precious moments to us and carry so much meaning for my family and I would just like to be able to share that with all of you as I know you all have been with us through this since we came to this board after finding out we were expecting. Please know that I think of you ladies often and do check the board from time to time each day, just to see how you are all doing. I love you all and congratulate you all on your precious little ones who have already arrived and those of you still waiting on the cusp of you little bundles arrivals.

all my love,

Christi and Greg

Thank you so much for checking in. I have thought about you daily (often several times a day) and prayed for you and your family regularly. I wish I had words to make everything better.

I am glad to hear that physically you are doing well. C-sections can be rough so I'm happy to hear you are healing well.

Please continue to check in when you feel up to it and know that you are loved and supported here.

We appreciate you checking in. I continue to pray for your family and hope that with time you gain peace and healing from this difficult experience.

Don't rush yourself with the birth story or the pictures if you are not ready, but remember that we are here for you and will support/cry/pray with you when you do.

Thanks to *Vicki* for an AMAZING siggy
