This painting made my heart ache terribly. Loss is difficult, especially when it comes in a tiny package like this little babe. It was amazing, back in October when two grieving mothers approached me, both at the same time, requesting I paint the memory of their little baby they lost at birth. I don’t know if they know each other. Makes me wonder if the one baby boy and this little girl knew each other, were possibly soul mates who came down and returned back to heaven at the same time? Who knows. But I am very grateful that they, and their mothers asked me to create this memory for them to treasure for a lifetime.
Little Sarah was born at about 24 weeks, 7″ long with beautiful soft light brown hair. Her color is lavender, and she had long lashes like her Momma. 🙂 While still in her Mothers womb, during an ultrasound she waved to her Mom & Dad. While I was painting her, I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed with love. It was like this downloaded knowledge to my mind that Sarah LOVES her Mother so deeply, and in the pre-existence, they had then and still do now – have a deep bond between each other. I couldn’t help but at times cry, experiencing these feelings. What a treasure to have that kind of love. ♥
I firmly believe that babies receive their Spirits the moment their heart-beats. I’d even go as far to say I have a strong testimony of this. I’ll be bold to say I know this. For as long as I remember, the moment I discovered my Mother had twins who were still-born, I was a small child (around the time I had ‘imaginary friends’ who were my deceased grandparents), I firmly told my Mom that I knew them. They’re in Heaven. This of course, made my Mother tear up. She always gets very sensitive remembering her boys who she lost at around 22 weeks. It was her very first pregnancy. She remembers just before she went into labor, they were tumbling about in the womb. She said when they were born (stillborn) she looked at them and they had all their little parts. So tiny, fit right in her hand. Heartbreaking. But I KNOW they’re in heaven, waiting for us all. I KNOW that my brother, who I love so deeply, who passed away just a few years ago, met them when he entered into heaven, along with my grandparents, see painting below:
If it’s any comfort to you, if you have also experienced a miscarriage, whether it be just weeks along, or months- lean on my testimony- you will hold them again. They lived within you, and they are safe and happy in Heaven. I have no doubt they are perfect Spirits, helping you along in life now as an Angel to you. They LOVE you, and your reunion will be quicker than you think. 🙂
