When we exchanged rings, we hoped our family of two would grow.
It has, into a family of 4. We're just split in half.
Two of us walk the Earth while two of us fly in Heaven.

Decor again

I was fiddling around with StoryBook again last night and came up with this for our wall.
The verse is one I learned at summer camp with my cousin Krista *ages* ago. I like it as we have to have hope. Hope that our children are safe, hope that we'll have more children, hope hope hope. The picture of us on our wedding day, wedding bands proudly on display and with my bouquet of red roses is us at the very start of our family.

Since we have no pictures of us with Julia after she was born, the red roses symbolize our Julia Rose. The picture of us holding Evan's hand is the proof that our hope of having another child was realized. We had him for a very short time but we had him.

We have the hope that Julia and Evan will be a proud big sister and big brother soon. We have the hope and promise that our children are safe in Heaven. We believe that babies who die before they really know the difference between right and wrong -often called the "age of reason"- go straight to Heaven.

"When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them,  
'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these'." Mark 10:14

The branch on the side is new growth. Hopefully new life.
