A Reason For The Season

A Reason For The Season

Today we pulled out all our Christmas decorations. Luke went with me and we picked out a new tree. Yes, we are decorating our home for the holiday season. To some it may seem to early. To others they may say "You're crazy" or "You're missing Thanksgiving." Actually, no, we're not. We will celebrate Thanksgiving next week. God willing our delivery goes well on Monday, we should be home Wednesday and we, as a family of five, will gather around...

Toby’s Memory Chest

Toby’s Memory Chest

A few months ago we decided to have a chest made for Toby to hold all of his special things that have been in the nursery for 2 years. We wanted it to be special and a place where we could collect things for him, from him, about him and about the Foundation, while also being a display piece, in his memory, in our home. Our hopes came full circle when we were connected to a very special and talented...

The Path of Transition

The Path of Transition

I've spent the last week swimming in baby items. Most of which were Toby's. The switch over of the nursery has hit me in waves. I feel joy & love in my heart in places that have been so broken and painful for 25 months, it scares me. Then the pain begins and the tears fall while every sense is engaged by grief - my eyes see flashbacks to certain moments when Toby is right with me; I can smell...

The memories. The grief. OUR journey.

The memories. The grief. OUR journey.

Today was a hard day. Pregnancy after loss is so hard. There is hope, yes, but the moments that need to happen before a Rainbow arrives are so challenging. I’ve talked before about how Toby’s room has remained the same since the day he died. Today, much of that changed. This is our choice. This is part of our promise to Toby, and to ourselves. To continue to move forward, but in a way that carries Toby with us, as...

Our Final Days

Our Final Days

This is the last picture we have as a family of four.   I was forcefully reminded as I started my morning commute today that this is the week I hate. The recurring flashbacks of those final days for our family, of what we thought was a normal week. Crazy mornings trying to get Toby fed, Luke dressed, ready and out the door for work and school. Schedules coordinated for pick-up and drop off of two boys. School buses making...

To The Parents Preparing For School to Begin – A Note From A Grieving Family

To The Parents Preparing For School to Begin – A Note From A Grieving Family

Lucas will start Pre-K this fall. With his first school application, we had to write a letter about our family. I was absolutely not ready for this. I knew we'd have to do it one day and know this is only the start of these conversations with teachers, administration, coaches, and families that we will meet along the way. But the triggers it brought were another layer of grief we were not prepared for. The administration was very welcoming and...

My Battle With The Beast

My Battle With The Beast

August holds my fear. It holds my happiness and feeling of wholeness. August is where ‘who I was’ lives and ‘who I became’ appeared. August holds my sons last breath. It holds my whole heart. August holds captive my sons future and every motherly wish I could ever have for him. As I stand on the doorstep of another anniversary, I have started to wander into the past, hoping to pull with me each and every moment, no matter how...

PSA: Spend the Money. Buy the Owlet.

PSA: Spend the Money. Buy the Owlet.

Over the past week, I have been asked multiple times about the Owlet Baby Monitors. Are they worth it? Should I spend the money? I’m on the fence about this monitor, but… What is unspoken is the BUT in each of these instances. But, I don’t want to have to worry about my infant while they are sleeping. But, I don’t want to have to continually check if they are breathing. But, I don’t want to have additional anxiety overnight...

One More Moment

One More Moment

It's the 24th again. Another milestone. But, not one where we can tell the world your new favorite book or food. It's another month of you being away from us. It is also the month which starts the season that coincides with our time with you on Earth. Two years ago you were still safe in my belly. I was finishing my last days of work and my heart was full of excitement as I couldn't wait to meet you....

21 months & Lots of Prayers

21 months & Lots of Prayers

Guys! It’s official - The Little Fox | Toby’s Foundation is incorporated & approved! ???? In just two weeks time all of our paperwork was reviewed and approved. We were told to not expect anything for 6-8 weeks. As soon as I started to read the letter last night I thought “This is all Toby’s doing. He’s opening doors again!” He knows his momma and she can’t wait for anything, especially when there’s work to be done, families to help,...
