My name is Ashley. I am married to my best friend and soulmate, Charles. We are high school sweethearts. We started trying to have a baby when I was finishing up nursing school with no success for fourteen months until I finally found out I was pregnant November 2015. We were ecstatic! We did everything the doctors said to do as we wanted to make sure everyone was as healthy as could be. We had a scheduled induction set for June 29th, 2016. When we arrived at the hospital to start the induction our world was shattered when we were told Sophia no longer had a heartbeat. Sophia was born into Heaven on June 30th at 8:26pm weighing 8lbs. 1oz. and measuring 21in. long. She is absolutely perfect. So, here I am trying to sort through life. Everything I had planned has been ripped away from me. A friend mentioned I should start a blog as I love to write… so I started this blog in the midst of my grief of losing our daughter, Sophia. I am blogging not only on the loss of our daughter but on our everyday lives without her. From simple trips to big announcements like Sophia is a big sister! I love to write and in doing so I hope to connect with others as they travel this awful road…
