Wow... I cannot tell you what an absolute pleasure it is to be here on THIS particular part of the SHARE board... sending THIS information:)

I still have to *pinch* myself to be sure it's not a dream! Ever since Taylor died, I dreamed of having another baby. I wanted another baby to raise- more than anything in the world! Of course, I knew that just wasn't possible... I'd had a tubal with my last c-section birth. Thinking our son was healthy & we'd be happy with the children we had- I'd signed for this tubal *exactly* 30 days prior (had it been 29, the hospital would not have allowed it)

Long story short... Taylor died only hours after the procedure was completed. I grieved hard for my son & I grieved equally hard for my inability to concieve again:(

Only a week after Taylor died, my husband told me "Maybe we can look into adoption". I truly feel back then, that he wanted so terribly to help me through my grief, that he brought this up as a "quick fix". Knowing we were having financial difficulties after our two boys heart conditions- it would never be possible. We had to get caught up!

Later Kurt told me "It'll happen- just consider this a 3 year pregnancy" and he worked. He worked hard. I opened a small childcare in our home and in doing this together we were able to get a few things paid off & order Taylor's head stone. Something I wanted done *before* a new baby.

We had our adoption homestudy completed in July 99. Now we were TRULY READY! We waited & I cried. There were times I just felt like giving up! We had 3 failed placements before Danielle found us!

Taylor's headstone arrived just days before his fourth birthday. I left for Florida just days AFTER! I arrived at the Tampa airport & was taken straight to the hospital where I would meet the wonderful little girl who had chosen us to adopt her precious baby. She was induced & I was there to see our Kianna Danielle Hope come into the world! I Got to cut the cord, I gave her the first bottle & held her first! I got to meet her family!

During all these years, I have questiond God for His taking my precious child. I had always felt so robbed of him. I never even got to hold Taylor in life:( They had flown him to Seattle (from AK) to have the "repair" on his heart & he died before I was released to go to him. I held him 4 days after birth/death. I missed every second God had given to me:(

Today, with my new daughter in my arms... I can say that I am at peace with Taylor's loss. This is not to say that I have "replaced" or that I don't miss him. It just says that we ARE able to move forward & LOVE again! Taylor is with me at all times... he is proud I am sure, that instead of giving in to the grief & heartache for the rest of my life- as I thought I would for so long- that we held on as a family & opened our hearts to another child in need. He is happy to share what he no longer needs.

Please visit my new baby girls site at you will see what a wonderful gift God has given us!

Kianna's (Kee-onna) name came from a name I read in a grief book so long ago. It was spelled different, but I absolutely *loved* this name! Danielle is her birthmothers name... Hope is for my friend Christy's daughter (lost the very day we lost Taylor) AND to represent the *HOPE* she has brought to our entire family!

I'm sorry this is so long, I have SO much to share & it's been SO long!


Sharon (sk ^i^) mom to Taylor Ryan

After losing 3 babies in 3 years, GOD has blessed us with the most incredible baby girl! She is healthy, happy and the funnest person I've ever met! What a great sense of humor she has! When I prayed for her, I underestimated GOD. She is so much more than I ever asked for.

Sister of Gage Anthony Tobin ~ August 21, 2000

- Angel Baby in Heaven ~

Proud  Parents and Family ~ Brian and Stephanie Tobin ~ New Orleans, Louisiana

Our beautiful baby daughter was born on June of this year and we were were simply elated. We basically held our breath through the entire pregnancy, hoping that we would not lose this one like we lost our son at 20 weeks.

We chose the name Hope because it had special significance to us--she is our hope for our future. We will always love and miss our firstborn, our son, Gage, and our love for our daughter is multiplied by our experience of his loss. The grief is still there, but time has definitely begun to heal our once-gaping wounds.

Proud  Parents ~ Paul and Stacey Mulrenin ~ Tampa, Florida

We can't believe it's been a year already since our precious second child was born...the delay in announcing it here on SHARE's website is simply because life has been so BUSY running around after a healthy, active and happy little boy. :) Eion is everything about which we dreamed and more. We are so grateful to be his parents.

June will always be a special month for us, as the two greatest gifts of our lives - the births of our two children - happened during June.
