Bryton Christopher

I am sharing the stories of our two oldest sons in an effort to do some healing.

All I have ever wanted from the time I was a little girl helping my Mom with the Daycare kids; was to be a Mother.

This is Bryton Christopher's story. It is very short but it helped make me who I am today.

When I met Robert we decided that we wanted to start our family right away. Robert and I were married on February 2, 2002. On March 18, 2002 we found out I was exactly 6 weeks pregnant (Yes, for those of you who just did the math in your heads, I got pregnant almost immediately) we were ecstatic!

At my second appointment on April 12th we found out that our baby's heart had stopped beating. I remember hoping and praying that the doctors were wrong and that our baby was still alive. I refused to believe it.

Robert and I had gone out to run errands and were in Walmart when I started to miscarry. We went home and after a few hours of unbearable pain we went straight to the ER. I refused an IV for pain meds be ause I was so so afraid of needles and ended up laboring in intense pain for about 2 hours.

I remember going home and staying bed for a week crying non-stop. We had a very strong impression that the baby was a boy so we named him Bryton Christopher.

I will forever be grateful to my Heavenly Father for giving me the opportunity to be a Mother to such a special spirit. It has been 14 years since he passed away and I still think about him every single day.

 I will be sharing Hayden's story soon.
