Crafting isn't making that hole in my heart go away, but it sure helps. It is good to have something to do. It is good to spend time with my mom. It is good to be crafty. We are working hard to get all of our projects done and our etsy shop open.

I will let you know when the shop is open. Coming soon!

SO SO CUTE...LOVING IT ALL! We know that nothing will replace the hole..NOTHING...but I'm so glad you are finding something to spend time doing, something that can bring you a little joy!

HI I just came across your site while drinking my morning coffee...I have never expirenced what you and your husband have been thru and i cannot say much only sorry for your loss. It takes time to heal but remember Cora is looking down with a smile. Stay strong.

I have been meaning to send you this...

We can't know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in the warmth of sunlight's kiss upon it's face, before it folds it's fragrance in and bids the world good night to rest it's beauty in a gentler place.

But we can know that nothing that is loved is ever lost, and no one who has ever touched a heart can really pass away, because some beauty lingers on in each memory of which they've been a part.

We continue to pray for you every day. Peace to you -

Hello, I just read all your blogs about Cora and I am crying like a baby. I just want you to know that I lost a child several years ago and I can relate. Nothing will ever fill the hole you now have in your soul, but you will feel better - believe me it happens.

The funny thing is, as I am crying my two-year old is asking me, "okay mom," and giving me kisses. Children are such a joy!

Good luck with your etsy venture, I will be looking for you, I have a shop myself!

My best to you and your family.

I've been praying for you ... no, you don't know me, but that's doesn't matter. The prayer request for Cora came to me via friends ... my husband and I recently had twins and both were in the NICU for several weeks. One of our boys had to undergo surger yat 40 days old. We had to come to grips that we might not get to take that one home. Having dealt with hard circumstances also, you blog page was sent onto us because people thought we'd understand your thoughts and emotions. We were fortunate to be able to bring home our son in the end ... but Cora is in a MUCH better home. :o) I love you and am praying for continued healing for you guys. My name is Karis King, and I'm from Nebraska. We know Anyd and Julie Friesen.

Hi Jess, My name is Danielle. I live in upstate New York and I came across Cora's story on Etsy yesterday and have spent the evening reading your blog and your friends and families blogs. My heart goes out to you and your husband. My prayer for you and your family is that the Lord will wrap His arms around you and provide comfort like you have never known. I pray you feel His mercies new every morning and I pray that you are daily reminded that you will see your precious daughter again because of the blood that flowed down the cross. Your unwavering faith in Christ is inspiring and challenging to my husband and I and I would hope and pray that I could stand as strong in my faith in our creator as you are. Know that we are thinking of you, praying for you and excited for you to be reunited with Cora one sweet day.

I have been following your blog for some time and finally got the courage today to post a comment. I too had lost a daughter over three years ago, she was 15 months old, although under different circumstances. I also took up crafting, photography, most recently blogging and you name it for really does help. Know that I am praying for you and your family as you embark on your journey after your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Our oldest son died almost 7 years ago. May I share with you what I learned about the 'hole in your heart' It is very real. Cora is part of your physical body and when she left this earth life, part of you(that piece of your heart)left too. Now you are adjusting to how you feel without that part of you will feel her near as she checks in on you from time to time. Life is eternal! May God continue to bless and comfort you.
