Hi, I’m Ashlee!
In the spring of 2006 I experienced loss for the first time when I miscarried our first baby. The emotional and physical pain was horrendous. The pregnancy had been a surprise and the unexpected nature of the loss led to much confusion. Why would God give and then take away? Had I done something wrong?
In the fall of 2008, we welcomed our second born son, Aaden Sage Proffitt. He was just 15 months younger than his big brother Andrew. I was ecstatic to be a mom of two boys who were so close in age. Brothers who would be best friends. On November 15, 2008, just shy of 6 weeks old, Aaden died in his sleep of unknown causes.
Since that day, I have been walking a journey that looked quite differently than I ever imagined, one of grief and pain and sorrow and a deep longing for eternity. See, grief never fully ends. I will miss Aaden Sage Proffitt forever. And yet amidst the grief, amidst the loss something remarkable happened, I experienced joy and hope.
My desire is that The Joyful Mourning Podcast would be a place where you can be reminded that you are not alone in this journey and that it would be a place of comfort, peace, and restoration; a place where you can find hope and joy again.A PEEK INSIDE MY EVERYDAY
