Myles' Legacy

It's no surprise that I think of my sweet little Myles daily, but to hear that others (even strangers) think of him is music to my ears! A friend of K's, M, is a paralegal and offered her services free of charge to help us acquire the pre-birth order (PBO) we will need to establish parentage. So, she's been doing a bunch of research on PBO in our county and in the process chatted with an attorney friend, H, to ask for her help. During a coversation between these two it came out that H actually knows of us through her work with a children's charity where she heard Myles' story and briefly met J and I. Both H and M are mommies, so they can empathize with our grief over losing Myles and feel blessed to have their children. Therefore, H has volunteered her services as well. M said she can't stop thinking of Myles' picture on my blog and H was equally moved by Myles' story, which is why they both want to help us.

When M told me this on the phone this morning I was overwhelmed with emotion and have been in tears ever since. I'm so humbled by the generosity of strangers and feel strongly that this is Myles way of letting us know that he's watching over us. Wow, wow, wow! These babies are going to come into this world with the help of so many wonderful, amazing people! The saying for us isn't that it takes a village to raise a child, but rather that it takes a village to bring two children into this world. H if you are reading this (I hear you visit my blog) thank you from the bottom of my heart! M, I've already told you, but thank you for being such a wonderful, caring person as well!

BTW ... look at our ticker! K is 10wks today! Now let's just fast forward a few weeks! K promised to send me a picture as she's now in maternity clothes and if she gives me permission I'll post it here! :)

The stars are all aligning for you in such a beautiful fashion, and I couldn't be happier.

And I agree -- it's hard NOT to think about precious little Myles. Whenever I see his picture, I envision him now as a perfect, beaming angel. He loves you so much!

I think of Myles often and I know he has become great friends with my girls and all our children in heaven. I think its amazing how much he has touched everyone and continues to bring inspiration to others. You are an amazing lady!! I really hope you know that. K is a superstar I hope she is feeling better with the M/S soon. Your blog always makes me smile. Thank you for that.

I like the new format better than the others!

That is beautiful - so many good people out there, it is good to know.

Tell K I am right behind her and will be in maternity clothes soon.

That is amazing and such a touching story Niki!

I also think of Myles daily, and even though he never "knew" Auntie Becca, I ask him every day to watch over you, Josh, K, and your precious babies.

This only goes to prove that what you send out to the world will be returned to you in forms you never knew you needed.

Sending you much love, and can't wait to see K's cute belly bumping with your babies!

By the way, How's Asha? You haven't mentioned her lately...I hope everything is ok.
