big brother shirt
This is a bittersweet post for me to write. About a month ago, my husband and I found out we were pregnant. What followed were five doctor visits within a couple of weeks. During this uncertain time I chose to stay positive, and made this "big brother" shirt for my son. I had found the shirt at Target on clearance a couple of months ago, and used fabric scraps for all of the letters. It was very therapeutic to design and make the shirt, and also a fun way to announce our news to family and friends.
Sadly, our baby didn't make it. During this brief pregnancy, I kept feeling she was a girl, so that's how I'll always think of her. She's with the other baby we lost a couple of years ago, and that gives me comfort. As the days go by, seeing this shirt gives me comfort, too. Caleb is still a big brother, even though he won't meet his little sister here on earth. And I'm confident that God will bless us with a healthy baby again, so maybe Caleb will have another opportunity to wear this shirt before he gets too big for it.
