The Story of Willa Rose

“Our nephew Oak, who is 4 years old, before he even knew that Willa died, he had a dream where Jesus told him that some babies are special and they get to go to heaven before they are born.” 

A friend shared Willa Rose’s story with me, and I wanted to pass it on to all of you. Her story is one that embodies beauty amidst the brokenness. Her parents inspire me to seek it daily. Thank you for sharing Willa Rose with all of us. We grieve and yet celebrate her life with you. And the lives of all the sweet babies that get to go to heaven before they are born.

    oh. What a beautiful, beautiful story. Overwhelmingly special. So glad the parents were vulnerable in sharing the story of their sweet girl.

      Such a beautiful (heart-wrenching, but beautiful) story indeed. Thankful that you shared your story with others, too, sweet mama.
