There is no footprint too small...

Thank you for visiting Find Your Spark. How did this blog come to be? It all started when my husband and I began our journey towards parenthood. We were expecting identical twins and have never felt happiness in the way we did when we planned our future with our babies. Our dreams were shattered along with our hearts on the day we discovered that we had lost our twins. We cried tears of joy on the day we found out we were pregnant, and we cried tears of agony on the day we realized they were gone. We carried them with us for 17 weeks. They are now angels, watching over us everyday. We cherish every precious, fleeting moment we had with our babies. We worried about them. We prayed for them. We sang to them, spoke to them and read to them. We devoted everything to them. We love them with our whole hearts. Isn't that what parents do? We will always be parents to our angels and they will always be our children. How blessed we are to have had the opportunity to become parents to such perfect beings. Our lives will be forever changed through having our babies in our world.

"There is no footprint too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."

In the depths of our darkest days, we were able to recognize that we very simply had two choices: to hope, or be hopeless. We choose hope.

In the days following our personal tragedy, my dear sister gave me a book of healing and hope. In the book, we found a section that spoke directly to our hearts. It spoke of finding and re-igniting your spark. My husband and I decided we would do just that. We would find our spark, and we would re-ignite it. Our lifelong dreams of parenthood would not be lost. Our once fulfilled lives would continue on. We would remember our angels every minute of every day, and we would survive.

I created this blog in an effort to re-ignite my spark. In it, I will focus on our continued journey towards parenthood, and anything else that brings joy to our lives. I pray that this blog continues to follow us through many joyful days ahead of us. My hope is that through walking with us, you, too, will be able to find your spark.

Whatever your spark may be...Shine On.

I have tears of joy right now as I read this blog written by a very courageous, very loving woman that I've never even met!
My name is Erin, I am Chris Morales' sister. I grew up with TJ, and we shared so many fun childhood memories together. I prayed for you during your loss, and I will continue to pray that you are blessed with a healthy pregnancy!

I found your blog through Sarah at C&C. I am so very sorry for yours and your husband's loss. I have been there myself, and understand your pain. I encourage you to not give up. After several MCs my husband and I finally sought help from a fertility specialist and are now almost 6 months along with our first. I hope you don't have to seek out the same help as us, but know that there are specialists out there that can help you. Best of luck to you and your husband and your journey to become parents.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I am so glad you found comfort in my story. I know your pain all too well and I am so so sorry for your loss. Blogging has helped me heal and I know it will do the same for you. The Lord will be faithful to give you that family you have always dreamed of. You will see your boys again. If you haven't read, Heaven is for Real, I encourage you to do so. It was so comforting to me. I will be praying for you and I believe with you for your babies.
