  1. Thank you to those of you who have looked at Luke’s pictures and commented on them. I have been really hurt and disappointed by how few people seem to be able/willing to do that.

  2. Hi Sara! I found your blog through another one I was reading. I’m touched by your story and the pictures of Luke are beautiful! He’s so handsome!! I pray for healing for you and your husband and for the gift of another child. Thank you for being so brave and sharing your story.

  3. Sara,
    I found your blog through another blog…I have read some of your story. I am so sorry for the loss of your baby Luke. He is precious and beautiful. I lost my daughter, Esther, at 16 weeks in February to a cord accident. There is nothing like this pain. I think it is absolutely impossible to understand if you have never lost a child. I pray you continue to find hope and strength in God.

  4. Sara, I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet (and absolutely beautiful) baby boy. Thank you for your kind words about Emelia. My heart hurts for you, the fact that any other mother has to feel this pain is absolutely devastating to me. I will keep you in my prayers.

  5. He is just absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing his photos. My heart aches for you – I know your pain and I am so very sorry for your loss

  6. Sara, thank you for posting these pictures. Luke is just beautiful, and I’m so sorry for the loss of his earthly existence with you and your family, and the pain you’re dealing with. I have never personally lost a child, but my husband’s sister just lost her full-term baby boy last week, so this is something I’m forcing myself to experience second-hand, for the sake of trying to understand, and to be a better encouragement to her and her husband, and others that have experienced this kind of loss. I appreciate your transparency.

    It IS hard to look at pictures of an infant and tell yourself that he’s not just sleeping. It’s hard to grasp the reality of all the turmoil the parents of a stillborn child are forced to go through. I don’t know a single person that goes looking for ways to feel that lump in their throat, so while I can understand your desire for the world to see your beautiful boy, we’re just wired to avoid things that are uncomfortable.

    Here is a passage of Scripture that I hope is an encouragement to you. May you take comfort in the sovereignty and lovingkindness of a Father who lost His Son, too, and truly understands your hurt. ❤

    Psalm 71:17-21
    17 O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds.
    18 So even to old age and gray hairs,
O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.
    19 Your righteousness, O God, reaches the high heavens. You who have done great things,
O God, who is like you?
    20 You who have made me see many troubles and calamities
will revive me again;
from the depths of the earth
you will bring me up again.
    21 You will increase my greatness
and comfort me again.
