Ryan, Brianna, Lucia and Sylas!

Everyone has been asking “How are the Morrisons doing?” I talked to Ryan and Brianna today, wanting to put an update out for them, and Ryan said he’ll be doing his own soon. So, keep checking their site (www.morrison6.com) for his update!

From my perspective:

I’m constantly amazed at how this story has touched people from all over the world. Although Ryan and Brianna didn’t ask for it…their lives and courage through everything that’s happened to them has been a blessing to many. In return, many strangers have blessed them! AND I have been able to sit back and watch it happen…it continues to happen! Here’s some specific gifts people have been blessing them with: meals at the hospital, jars of homemade jam, fresh picked strawberries, cards, gift cards for gas, 2 huge bins of treats from TARGET CORPORATION (WOW-ee! 🙂 ) and more that I’m not thinking of right now.

What I’ve learned:

  • Tears of sorrow can be mixed with tears of joy!
  • At the center of unimaginable tragedy can be great hope, love and blessing…when people surround those that have suffered.
  • I don’t have to say anything…just being there is enough.
  • Faith can carry you through the darkest valley and bring you comfort through your journey.
  • There is healing and hope for tomorrow.

One of my closest friends told me about this song she used to “bawl” (word used by women who know what it is to cry really hard) while listening to it in College. This was before she was a mom. And the words are perfect for this entry…

Glory Baby – Watermark

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
’till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ’cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

Thank you, Noemi, for this precious update. I check your site and the Morrison6 site daily and continue to pray for them. And what a beautiful song – I have not heard that one before, but having lost my twins at 22 weeks, it really touched my heart and soul. Here is one other link to a song that brings me to tears each time I listen to it – it very clearly states all that I feel for my babies. http://www.compassionatefriends.org/precious_child.htm

Again, thank you for being an amazing friend to this precious family, and for keeping the world included. The Morrison’s are never far from my thought and heart.

Thank you so much for the update, I too check your website along with the Morrison6 website daily, (if not twice a day). I too lost a set of twins at 25 weeks and I know having my friends (alot like you) helped me through that terrible time. Now I have identical twin daughters that are 18 months, and they are a true miracle too, God will help us all through these times and make us stronger people. I will keep your family and the Morrisons in my thoughts and prayers each day. God Bless You All!!

Your “lessons learned” are a true insight into faith, friendship and God’s faithfulness … “Faith can carry you through the darkest valley and bring you comfort through your journey.” – I truly don’t know how one can survive those valleys without Him and the friends through whom He shows His love and comfort. Blessings to each of you today.

I lost twins last August and I know how hard it can be to lose a child. I wanted to provide a resource to the Morrison’s and knew that you could share it with them. It is The Center for Loss in Multiple Birth – http://www.climb-support.org/

I’ve met many wonderful friends through this resource. I wish only the best for Ryan, Brianna, Lucia and Sylas. My prayers and thoughts will be with them.
