Rebecca Reese Martin

One year ago, on May 15, 2011 at 8:45 am we met our sweet little girl, Miss Rebecca Reese Martin.
Sweetly called "Reese." Her birth story is here if you'd like to read it.

We had prayed and prayed and had thousands of prayer warriors praying for her healing from our 12 week diagnosis. God's plan was different, He gave her the life of no pain, no suffering, knowing no sin and living in complete joy for all of eternity, straight from the womb.

Our hearts have suffered, our tears have been plenty, but we remember how much this little life touched our lives in the 28 weeks we were blessed to have her.  It has been a long year, full of every emotion one can imagine. Pain, grief, hope, joy, and an abundance of blessings. We are carrying this sweet girls's sister and will be 37 weeks Saturday with all healthy reports. We cannot wait to meet her. We are so blessed to have her joining our family, and we feel so honored God chose us to be her parents. Even with this newest blessing bestowed on us and the joy we've had from it, our hearts do ache and miss sweet Reese everyday, more than you can imagine. It's not been an easy year of  "firsts" not having her for holidays or things we thought we'd be doing with her. But with each sadness, it has been so bittersweet to feel each kick from her little sister letting me know she is there.

As a rememberence of our sweet little girl and all the lives she touched and the amazing things that happened here is a short video made by my sister, of just a glimpse of the blessing she has been.....
