After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

Week to Week

I've been thinking about what a difference one week can make. Let me use photographs to illustrate my point.


Monday 14th June 2010 - Pregnancy photo's at 32+2.  
Just two days after this photograph was taken our beautiful girl had stopped moving and the scan that told us her heart had stopped beating and she'd grown her angel wings. Little did we know when this photo was taken what the next week had in store for us. We were so full of excitement and anticipation.



Monday 21st June 2010 - Our beautiful sleeping girl arrives. 
Exactly one week after our last pregnancy photographs were taken we were sat in a hospital room with Anabelle cherishing every precious moment we were able to spend with her before we had to give her up. Hope, excitement and anticipation replaced with brokenness. 


Monday 28th June 2010 - Anabelle's Funeral 
One week after Anabelle was born, and two weeks on from the pregnancy photographs full of hope; we buried our beautiful girl. Brokenness joined by utter despair. A place we visit regularly but still unable to believe we tend our little girls graveside instead of watching her grow. 

 Three consecutive Monday's - three very different weeks.

Oh Caz :( In tears just looking at those pictures. I often do what you have just done - work out what I was doing a week ago, what happened a year ago etc. I cannot imagine those three Mondays of your lives. Massive hugs and hopefully some happier Mondays to come xxxxxxxxxx
