Goodbye Already?

Rebecca Lane Burchfield was born too soon on 10/27/10 at 5:09pm. She was 1lb 8oz and 13 inches of beautiful, beautiful baby....her heart stopped beating in my arms less than an hour after her birth.
We were in the hospital for two and a half weeks before she died..I kept a journal, which I will post later.
Tomorrow afternoon is her funeral and she will be buried beside her older baby brother, Jimmy.

Sweet dreams, Becca dear. Mommy and Daddy miss you so much.


  1. ((((Katie))) I am soooooooo sorry. I wondered how you were doing and I was going to comment on your journal wondering for an update. I am soooooo sorry. She looks beautiful. I know you will see her again and spend eternity with her but I hurt for you because you won't have a chance to raise her. I am sooooooo sorry. Know that you are in my prayers and my thoughts. As hard as it is.....we'll keep trusting in God.......

    hugs to you

    if you ever need anything......please let me know.......

    Thank you Betty. She was a beautiful little girl...with her Daddy's features. So sweet and precious!
    God took good care of us in the hospital and he gave us 2 weeks more weeks with Becca that the doctors said we didn't have.
    He continues to watch over us and carry us through our grief.
    Thank you for thinking of me.
