18 Months...A Letter to my Son Lincoln

Oh, my sweet baby Lincoln. How have I gone a year and a half without seeing your beautiful face? Sometimes the pain of missing you and the cloak of grief that I bear is so great, I can hardly stand under the weight of it. I miss your sweet little fingers and your sweet little toes. I miss all the questions that you'd soon be asking me, like why is the sky blue and why do eyes have to blink and why do we feel pain. As much as I would try to answer your questions and teach you about the beauty of God's Creation, I think that you would be the one who would end up teaching me. I long to have you with me at this very moment, but for reasons beyond my understanding, your daddy and I were only able to enjoy you for five short days. I will always carry you in my heart, little Linc, and I can't wait to see you again. Until then, missing you...



  1. What a precious letter...and baby. I can't imagine the ache you have for your baby. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Brianna,
    These letters are beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing your life with us. I read your blog daily to see what Sylas has been up to. He is an amazing miracle baby. Truly a gift from God. Thank you.

  3. Brianna,

    It makes me so sad to read your letters, and yet it is so good to remember their lives in this way. Can it be 18 months already since they were born? We passed the 2-year milestone for the loss of our twins, Benjamin and Joseph, in October...and I still miss them every day.

    Though I'm sad to read your letters, it reminds me how grateful I am, on your behalf for the miracle of Silas. Thank you Lord that you reserved one for Ryan and Brianna to parent out of those 6. I know his presence has surely eased some of the ache of your loss.

    Thank you for sharing this with us and their precious pictures.

  4. Lincoln is a precious little boy. Remembering him today.


Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I love hearing from you.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
