resolve to hope

Most of you that follow this blog know that my friend Jenn and I are organizing the RESOVLE Ohio Family Building Conference in April. For the past seven months or so, this "little" conference has become our second job, to say the least. I don't know if I have ever put so much time, effort and compassion into one single event! This conference has so much meaning for me. It actually is taking place on the second anniversary of my due date. When we first booked the venue, I thought " how in the world am I going to be able to see April 4, 2009 written on everything?" Well, as the months have gone on, I have come to see it as more of a tribute and my way of giving back to a group that helped me get out of a very very sad time in my life.

More detail on our conference can be found at Spread the word, registration is open!

This brought tears to my eyes Julie ~ I'm so glad that you are finding a way through what I know is a very difficult date to look at. What a beautiful person you are! :)
One of my nephew's was born on the same day I found out our baby (first pg in 7 years) was no longer growing....I'm hoping some day that date becomes just "his birthday", but I know the pain that can accompany dates. I'm proud of you for being so brave and for this wonderful contribution you are making to an organization that helps so many. :)

It's funny how the Lord works things out in our life for the good. Even though it was beyond your thought ability, the Lord knew exactly what you needed when you needed it. I'm so very proud of you.
