I hope you understand then why I haven't shared too many. Not only are Evie's pictures so very precious to me, they also evoke some very raw emotions. When I see pictures of Micah as a baby I smile and oooh and ahhh remembering how cute he was and how he used to do this and that. When I see pictures of Evie I almost gasp. Pictures of her evoke emotions of pure bliss mixed with deep sadness. It's a strange combo indeed. And at least at this point in my grieving process I feel the need to protect my heart from casually seeing her likeness on facebook. I feel much more comfortable sharing her sweet face here in the privacy of my blog than in a more public and potentially viral setting.
So if you're wondering why you haven't seen more pictures, that is why. I will share some here but there will probably never be an Evie album on my facebook page. But thanks to the kindness and sacrifice of a beautiful photographer whom I have the privilege of calling my friend, I have hundreds of photos in a pink polka-dotted photo album to remind me of my precious girl for many years to come. A true, true treasure.
Chani, you are a saint. Thank you seems hardly enough to acknowledge the gift you have given me.
