Life After Infant Loss | The Morning | A Community of hope for women finding joy after infant loss. | Ashlee Proffitt | Aaden Sage

(Originally Posted November 15, 2009) Today Andrew informed me that he was going to teach Aaden ‘how to play books and cars.’ I almost asked him how he was going to do that exactly, but decided to leave it alone. I cried instead. A couple of days ago I was telling him that our friends […]

(Originally Posted March 27, 2010) Today Asher is 5 weeks old. Aaden was 5 weeks old when he died. I am slightly afraid to allow myself to get too close, to be too happy… to let my heart be unguarded. I am afraid of losing something so precious again. The day we brought Asher home […]

(Originally Posted February 19, 2010) I have not written as much as I had maybe hoped I would throughout my pregnancy with Asher. I envisioned myself being strong enough to write and tell you about all the ways that God was continuing to heal our family… relaying to you all the ups and downs of […]

(Originally Posted November 30, 2009) The one year anniversary of Aaden’s death came and went. God was again faithful to surround us with family and friends who provided much love, support, and prayers. I was in complete awe of Him that day and the way He can use tragedy to unite His children. I was […]

(Originally Posted November 15, 2009) I have so many things I could say about today… but the words, unlike the tears, are not coming so easily. I am overwhelmed by your love and unending support. I have been changed by seeing you demonstrate Christ’s love to me and my family. I have been receiving messages […]

(Originally Posted November 8, 2009) Aaron and I love to reminisce. We like to look back and see what has transpired since then… see where God has brought us and what He has brought us through. Now, more than ever we talk about our memories… maybe because that’s all we have of Aaden. This past […]

(Originally Posted November 2, 2009) As the first anniversary of Aaden’s death approaches I am finding that much of the progress that had been made over the past months is giving way. I have been haunted by nightmares once again and for the first time in months I woke Aaron last night and had him […]

(Originally Posted October 31, 2009) It is an Aletheia tradition, the ‘Chilly Chili Fest.’ It has become such a tradition that there will be ‘Chilly Chili Fests’ going on up and down the east coast today at the different Aletheia church plants… too bad here in Tampa it isn’t even close to being ‘chilly’… haha.

(Originally Posted October 30, 2009) I am finding it hard to find the strength to finish my letter to Aaden. Maybe tomorrow. Yesterday morning I went to the grocery store for milk. A seemingly small task that would really require little to no reliance upon God. However, I felt my stomach drop when I saw […]
