Dear Evy:

promising to live a happy and simpler life in honor of my evelyn

I had a perfect life. Happily married, 2 beautiful girls, Ava & Evy, small house, chickens and a puppy. On May 15, 2014 my 10 month old daughter, Evelyn, woke up with a fever. On May 21 my whole world and heart were shattered. Something that was supposed to be a stomach bug, was not. She somehow contracted an incredibly rare infectious disease that we aren’t even sure how she contracted.

My Evelyn was a beautiful little girl full of life and happiness. We always called her our “easy” baby. She will forever be my little girl. She was only with us for a short 10 months so this blog helps me keep her memory alive. It allows me to put into writing what I am feeling and my favorite memories. I want everyone to know about my Evelyn Sarah and what a wonderful gift from God she was to me. I am so lucky to have had her in my life and I’m living my life in honor of her.

    Beth,
    I found your blog last night from the Facebook post about the 10K. I read every single entry while I sat outside watching Adalyn play in the front yard. Just like everyone else, I can’t imagine what you’ve been through and the awful emptiness you’re enduring. Thank you for sharing your story, and for helping myself and many other parents out there realize just how precious this gift of having children truly is. All the love to you & yours – Cassie Cooley

    What a testimony! I’m feeling sad and happy at the same time. I too believe God communicates with us through signs and gut feelings. While having little Evelyn leave your family to join God’s, He does provide in His time. What a blessing for your family and for Elijah!

    Good Evening. I have read a few of your blogs and cannot express my condolences. Your expressions through your blog keep Evy here with you.

    A friend of mines son and daughter-in-law lost their baby at 20 weeks. She was admitted for a severe UTI. The baby was fine. Then she started to have “stomach spasms.” But my friend, her mother in law, new it was contractions. She is not doing well at all. She very depressed and not talking to anyone. Do you know of any support groups or anything that may help her?
