Joshua and Adelaide

josh and adelaideToday we sent the two most beautiful children I’ve ever seen back to heaven.  They couldn’t have been more perfect.  Kyle and I would like to thank everyone once again for their prayers and fasting and we know that we could not have borne the burden that we were asked to today without the strength those prayers provided.  We are amazed at the love and support from both those who know and love us deeply and some who don’t know us as well but who have reached out in love and support.  We hope you will continue to be mindful of us but that you will respect our space as we grieve the loss of our sweet children.

    My prayers are with you, though I do not know who you are, nor do you know who I am. Just know that I have endured loss of loved ones, and I am here to tell you the veil is thin and those children are yours forever! They are so lucky to have parents like you!

    Amanda and Kyle, This is your Aunt Marnae. I know that perhaps I am not the first person you wish to hear from, since I have twins. But I cannot go without expressing my sadness for the loss of those tiny babies of yours. I remember very well the excitement I felt as I received the news of upcoming twins myself. To have that all dashed so quickly would have been so devastating. I am really, really sorry. I just want you to know that I care. It is a loss that can’t be replaced.

    I’m sure you have been told by now of Kim (David’s wife) Spackman’s sister Karolee. The exact same thing happened to her on her first pregnancy, she was even having twins, too, and she now has 8 kids. I just say that to offer some hope.

    I love you. We are flying to Houston on Friday afternoon but if the memorial service is before that I will be there.

    Dear Kyle and Amanda,

    All our prayers are with you at this difficult time in your life. When I met Elder Spackman while on his mission I never thought this type of conversation would come up. Unfortunately, your Aunt Marnae is right on both counts. Twins and premature deliveries run in the Spackman lines.

    Hang in there, the pain is bad now but your precious children are with Heavenly Father and are waiting for you.

    All our love and prayers! Your wayward Spackman cousin and family,

    Stephanie Spackman Hawkins

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your precious babies. I lost my twin girls at 21 weeks due to Incompetent Cervix last year. There are truly no words I can say apart from I’m so so sorry. (((hugs))) I look forward to following you on your journey. xoxo
