View Full Version : My sweet and amazing Grace Elizabeth

Yesterday about 6 P.M. our granddaughter gave birth to a little girl. Even though she was full term, she weighed only 3 lbs. 1oz. We had known since September that she suffered from Trisomy 18, a chromosomal disorder. These babies have a very hard time just living, and so did our Grace. After 22 hours she returned to Heaven. She spent her short life in the arms of her family and quietly went away. She was just too small to sustain her life. She influenced many people in her short life and even more in the months before she was born. So many prayed for her and we are sure that's why she had those few hours of life. She even helped heal the bad feelings between my ex DIL and present DIL, her grand mothers. She was so special, my tiny amazing Grace.

I'm so sorry, heaven has another angel. Prayers for the family.

Prayers for your family.

My niece, Seraphina, had Trisomy 18, she was born at 28 weeks and lived for about an hour. She was under 2 pounds. It's hard to believe that it was 8 years ago now, and it still makes me cry to hear about others going through the same.

February 1st, 2015, 12:40 AM
God has such a special angel. Prayers for your family.

February 1st, 2015, 12:47 AM
I am so sorry to hear of your families loss. The angel Grace Elizabeth is looking down on her wonderful family.

I'm so sorry Linda, for you and your entire family. There can be nothing more tragic than losing a newborn, even though you knew her life would be shortened. Condolences to all.

Why oh why do these things happen. I lost a newborn too many years ago. It is okay to tell people just go away and leave me alone. They will understand. We are all thinking of you and your family.

Praise the Lord for the time you all had with Grace. Such sorrow to let go but one day you will see her again in Heaven. She is blessed to be with Jesus and see his beautiful face. May the memory of your beautiful Grace be a comfort to you and all who love her.

February 1st, 2015, 03:32 AM
I am so sorry for the tremendous loss your family is going through right now.I wish I had the right words to comfort you but I don't think there are any. Please try to find peace in the fact that she was with and supported by the whole family.

Hugs. One of my close friends lost a little girl who had Trisomy 18. Sweet Grace will bless her family even in her absence. <3

My heart breaks for you! Having been through something similar, I know how very, very hard this is for you.

I do love your GGD-s name. My last surviving aunt, my beloved Aunt Grace, also went to heaven this week. Perhaps our heavenly father will introduce them. My Aunt Grace loved babies so.

So heartbreaking to hear this. I'm so so sorry. You have such a positive attitude. I guess that's the kind of outlook one should have at times like these.

February 1st, 2015, 04:25 PM
This is just so sad. I am sorry for your loss. It is so positive that the family overlooked their issues to stand together for the young couple. My prayers to you and your family.

Dear friends. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Quilters are the best friends in the world. I feel comforted just knowing you are all around me. Grace is where she needs to be, and life will slowly return to normal. There will always be an empty spot in our family, and she will not be forgotten. We do have something to look forward to. Our grandson and wife are expecting a boy in May, so we must prepare for Matthew while remembering Grace.

February 2nd, 2015, 11:14 AM
I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like your able to take some comfort in the fact that she's in heaven. You'll see her again someday! Prayers for your family.

February 2nd, 2015, 12:34 PM
May you sense God's peace & comfort during this difficult, sad time. Heaven is real. I have family & friends there. I know I'll see them someday when it's my time to go.
