Walking at Garfield park I came across this. I took this as a sign from Exodus. I love that both my girls are here 💕
Im sitting in the kids room sort of in awe that this won't be our home in just a couple of days. This room specifically is going to be hard to leave behind. It has so much history. So much love. It holds a story. The story of how I moved in here married to my first husband. The story of us trying to get pregnant and setting up the nursery for our future child. The story of how we never got to finish the nursery because Genesis heart stopped. The story that I continued to finish the nursery because I vowed I'd be a mother to a living child some day. And how while I worked so hard to paint the mural of the weeping willow with the koi pond surrounded with dragonflies... My daughter sat in her urn in a drawer in this very room. The story of how I had not one or two.... But four beautiful rainbow babies to eventually use this nursery. And those babies grew and two of them are so big I can't even believe they are the same babies. And now that we are leaving this room.... This house, I'm now married to someone else and now a mother to 6 (4 here and 2 in paradise)... Our story is in these walls. Eventually someone will put a fresh coat of paint over this mural... But each and every brush stroke was filled with so many emotions. Hope, happiness, heartbreak, faith, fulfillment, longing, grief and gratefulness. I can't help but feel I'm leaving a piece of my heart here. I'm not ready to say goodbye.

I went to Genesis' garden last Friday and was surprised to find that parts of the garden were damaged and defaced.
Labels: Genesis' garden
Well I guess I didn't lose it. But it's gone. I had bought a nursery set that included bedding, pillows, window shams, Landry hamper and so much more, for Genesis' nursery. Dragonfly themed of course. Now that pretty much all my babies are grown up, aside from N, and plus with the move we need to get rid of a lot of stuff. Well, I sold it. I had to. It was bitter sweet. Here is one last photo of the nursery set.

We are moving. It was unexpected. It's not ideal. And I'm stressed beyond words. But, I'm choosing to see it as a new chapter and a new beginning. But moving has left me with a mixture of emotions.
This was the house she was conceived in. The house where she grew in my belly for almost 5 1/2 months. The house that had the nursery that I prepared for her. The same nursery that all my rainbows used. I worked for days, if not weeks, painting that mural. I get signs from her all the time here. I feel her presence. I know the rainbows saw her here when they were babies as they would always be staring off in the distance and smiling at something.... Someone.
I was worried that leaving this house would be leaving her. I know it probably sounds irrational. But it def was a thought and perhaps a small concern that has popped in my head since I found out we would have to move.
Well just now I got a wink from Genesis. Since we are moving I have been selling a ton of things online. There is an app called Offer Up that I have been using to get rid of things. Someone just messaged me. Take a look:

I'm only now connecting the dots and realizing things I saw/ happened in the days leading up to and following the 9th anniversary of Genesis EDD are signs she was near.
Wednesday 7/27 a baby bird flew right in front of me and basically fell at my feet. I was just told in another unrelated conversation that birds can actually be signs that the spirit of loved ones are visiting. Instantly it clicked that it was a sign. This is that sweet little one.

I drive by this place today. Totally unplanned. I had an unexpected trip to the hospital today and on the way back the streets were closed. The detour took me this way. What's this place? It's the mortuary Genesis was at. I believe it was a wink from her letting me know she is near.
