People nowadays will offer condolence in death faster than they’ll offer compassion in life.
They’ll ruin your peace while you’re here, but then pray you rest in peace when you leave.

I found out that I was pregnant with you in Ireland. When you were just the size of a blueberry you joined me at 3,000 feet above sea level on a small island off the coast of West Africa. When your heart took its first beat, you were 5,700 kms away from where we now call home.
You endured the longest travel days. Your sister squished you when she just needed a nap in the carrier while touring the Colosseum. I kept you a secret from everyone. I didn’t tell your dad about you until we were 9 weeks pregnant and tossing coins in the Trevi Fountain. You are the best wish come true.
During our second trimester together I lost my father and was overcome with extreme sadness. And in the midst of an incredible loss, you were growing stronger. When I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest, yours kept beating for me.
When you were just about the size of a Pineapple you took your first dip in the ocean in Hawaii. You hiked, swam at the base of waterfalls and soaked up the warm sun. With your help I began to heal a little.
At the beginning of our third trimester you were stranded in the Denver airport during a bomb cyclone. We slept together on the airport floor keeping watch over your older siblings. Siblings that now watch over you.
I worried. I worried so much. I worried about the food I ate in other countries. I worried about the plane rides. I worried
about the air quality so high above sea level. I worried.
I worried about how much I cried when your grandfather was sick. I worried about how much I cried for the days and months after he passed away. I worried about how much I worried.
I wanted you here. I felt you would be safer on the outside.
And here you are. The happiest baby. The easiest smile. The most easy going little being. You’ve already been through so much, and you’ll never know the impact you’ve made in such a short time.
Sweet Sawyer, you are loved more than you will ever know. You have joined me on some pretty incredible adventures already, and together we will go on so many more. 🧡
