Angela, my friends and readers are deeply touched by your post and would like to offer you a bouquet of prayers and thoughts. You have inspired us and showed us, with your beautiful pictures and writings, a pure love that resonates in Christ's light. May God bless you and your wonderful family for sharing this with us and bringing us a little closer to Him, especially during this Lenten season. Here is the bouquet...

From Flora…
I will offer one rosary per night for one month for Mary Grace and the Holmes family to add to your prayer bouquet.

From Terry…
The Holmes family will be in my prayers. In God's goodness and perfect love, these children are all being held in His arms, forever. This family is an inspiration for us all, they are truly filled with His grace. May the Lord bless them all the days of their lives.

From Loretta….
Angela,
My prayers are with you and your family. The love expressed through your blog is touching and inspiring. I have several nieces and/or nephews I never got to meet on earth. I know they are with Jesus waiting for us.
God bless you all.

From Mary….
Dear Holmes Family,
I was so touched by Angela's writings and prayers. Your closeness to Jesus is extraordinary. The story of Mary Grace (and the miscarriages) resonated deep within me, and my heart broke open a little. I lost my first child to miscarriage (April 4, 1979) and I thought the world had ended. Yet this is small compared to a 21 week developing baby. I will keep you in my prayers. I am so impressed by the depth of your sorrow, the wonder of your joy, and of the healing of Jesus. God Bless.

From Patti…
I wanted to share 1 Corinthians 1 : 3&4.

From Bill…
So sad a story....you can't help but cry for a couple with so much love to give, only to have tragedy strike so many times. We truly are fortunate for what we have.

From Kathleen…
What is so precious is to see how they love each other so much, and they see God's bounty and blessings in everything, even in their tragedy. Their example lifts the rest of us!! Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the Holmes family!

From Mary…
"Kathleen, please forward that I was very touched by Angela's writings and prayers. Her closeness with Jesus is obviously her most treasured gift. The story of Mary Grace (as well as her miscarriages) resonated deep within me, and my heart broke open little. I lost my first child to miscarriage and I mourned for a long time. Yet that was small compared to the loss of Mary Grace. I am so impressed by the depth of their sorrow, the wonder of their joy, and the healing of Jesus."

From Laurel…
Dear Angela,
Although I have not had to live through the heartbreak of a miscarriage, I have had several friends who have shared your story...I know that it must be like having a piece of your own heart die. Your love & courage are a true reflection of God's way in a world where "love & courage" are so distorted. Know that you now have a little angel watching over you from above, and that someday you will all rejoice together in Heaven!! Little Mary Grace will run to your arms and say "thank you so much for loving me like you did!". My prayers are with you all!

I've seen the picture of Mary Grace's feet several times. I just realized looking at these pictures, that she had your feet! How funny is it, we've known each other so long we can tell if a baby has their mother's feet! Her 2nd toe is longer than her big toe--just like yours! What a precious thing to know, if you had not chosen to keep her you would never have seen the tangible evidence that she exsisted and was part of you. What a sweet memory to have of my little "neice." She has my best friend's feet! Glad to see that the blanket is a comfort too. Maybe you can give it to Isabel when she has her own family one day...to pass down. Mary Grace will always, ALWAYS be in my heart. And as always, you are in my prayers. You are a shinning example of motherhood. And, as I've said before-you really are my hero. I truly feel blessed to have your whole family in my life.
