Let me introduce you to Katie. Katie has a contagious smile and beautiful red hair. She is always employed by a job that allows her to help others in some way. She is courageous and faithful and loving. She is an excellent conversationalist and makes you feel important and loved. I love her and I admire her.
I actually just met Katie today. Katie and I share an experience that has changed our lives forever. That is because in addition to all of those other qualities, Katie is the mother of a beautiful and perfect son, Porter, who is in heaven.
After my initial blog post, I got connected with Katie online through a mutual friend. And after blog stalking her for the past couple months, I decided I wanted to meet her in person. Luckily she complied. We went to lunch today at Cafe Rio.
Who would have thought that three months after I felt my baby kicking me and moving around more than ever, I'd be back to that same restaurant to meet with a mother who has also buried her baby? Not me. That's for sure.
Nevertheless, I am thankful for this opportunity to meet and get to know such an amazing woman!
Katie, thank you for your example of hope and trust in the Lord's plan and timing.
