In the Arms of Jesus

Ella Ruth Gray
February 2, 2011
5:37 am

On February 2nd, 2011 I went for my 4 month prenatal check-up. 
I was looking forward to hearing my child's heartbeat.
I was out of the 1st trimester and felt like 
I was out of the danger zone...
There was no heartbeat..
the sonogram confirmed it..
We had lost our baby a few days shy of 16 weeks.

I was admitted to the hospital,
labor was induced
and I gave birth to my little girl at 5:37am. 

She was tiny... only 2 oz and 6 inches long. 
 Tiny little feet...
Tiny little hands...

We held her in a little pink blanket 
handmade by Threads of Love.

Ella Ruth is her name.
(Ruth after my grandmother)

Only the Lord knows why...
why my baby girl had to die.

I pray that through our loss
His name will be glorified!
