Laid to Rest

We laid our little miscarried baby to rest this evening in a private ceremony in a country graveyard of a beautiful, old Catholic Church. Fr. Rick performed the burial ceremony in honor of our little Mary (or Mario). The evening was perfect, the setting was idyllic, and we came home feeling so very happy that our little one who was called by God weeks ago has now been laid to rest.

Blessings to you all. It is comforting to know that our babies are safe at home in Heaven if they cannot be with us. A priest friend once told me after our daughter died, "As much as you love her, God loves her even more." That was humbling at the time, but I take great comfort in it now.

Oh how sweet. Beautiful setting too!
