So I'm gonna play catch up since today is the 4th.

Day 1 ~ Who are you ? I'm Caroline. I'm a wife , a Mommy & most of all a mult-tasker. I don't think there is too much I haven't tried.

Day 2 ~ Tell us about your children ??

Ridge Logan ~ My son , My first - born & he changed my life. We share a special bond.

Thaniqua Marie ~ My daughter, My oldest daughter. She is a super kind girl and came into this world in a special way.

Jennifer Lynn ~ My second daughter ~ She gave Mommy a scare when I was delivering her but God was watching over us.

Riley ~ My second son. God had some special plans for him and I lost him only at 12 weeks due to a miscarriage Feb 10 , 2006.

Little Muffin ~ Left this world at 8 weeks due to a miscarriage ,Dec 1 , 2007 God had great plans for you I know.

Carly Lorraine ~ My Rainbow Baby. You have brought so much joy to this family. God is so very Good & I thank him everyday for you.

Sweetpea ~ My youngest son. Left this world at 12 wks due to a miscarriage , Jan 6 , 2011. God I know had special plans for you.

I love all my children with everything I have.

Day 3 ~ Through the grief process who has been my " Rock " ? I would have to say my husband. Always there for me to talk to listen and together we can do anything.

Day 4 ~ Through your grief process what has kept you going ??? I would have to say God. He is always there for me. Even at times when I didn't understand the reasons I lost I knew he was there caring for my children. I believe in Heaven and I believe I will see my children again.

I think this is a good challege for mothers of loss, Caroline; it might help others to read and see their feelings are similiar as you all walk this sad road together :(

but it is good that you do have such a strong faith in God; I am sure that helps you get through the toughest of days!
