Our Journey


My name is Peggy, and my husband is Wayne. Michael, our son, was born prematurely, due to me having pre-eclampsia. He was a fighter from the beginning, never needing anything more than time to learn to eat,  grow and thrive.  He was born at a wee 3lbs 11oz.  He was the spitting image of us both! Unfortunately Michael suffered from colic, so we all suffered with him. He was just beginning to outgrow it, when we lost him to SIDS, two days shy of being 5 months old.   This blog was started as way for me to remember him, express my emotions that seem too big to be contained inside, and to have a safe place to talk and is turning into a hopeful place.  Through seeing how God has provided for us, sustained us and given us peace and joy again, He has turned our sorrow into dancing again.

I was lost but found my way in this world that has suddenly turned against the natural order of things. Please follow me and my journey towards healing, hope His peace and my new normal.


Gone, but not forgotten. Missing more than the air we breath.  Once filled with grief, now we have hope for our future and take one day at a time, enjoying the peace God provides.

    Your story is so touching. I am so sorry for your incredible loss. I am an inspirational author and have a book out called Joining the Dance of Life: Thirty Days to a Happier You! and another book coming out soon called Finding the Light of Jesus. I was wondering if you might review my books and possibly have them on your site. I could send you Joining the Dance of Life. I should be getting copies today, and Finding the Light I could give you probably the middle of November. Joining the Dance has inspirational poems and reflections each day for thirty days. Finding the Light has prayers and reflections related to faith and looking at oursleves and culture honestly and with love.My hope is that is will assist us with growing in faith.Thank you so much for your consideration.

    With Love,

    Hi Peggy! Thanks for following me through Blog Frog! Your story hits a little close to home for my family…my younger sister lost her baby at birth due to diaphragmatic hernia, and other lung & heart issues. It happened on February 17th of this year. I’ll be praying for your continuing journey to peace and comfort!

    Today of all days I share your grief, my son Richie was born 25 years ago today and died of SIDS on March 26th 1986/ These days are the worst for me….. I still miss him and love him very much. God blessed me with three other angles not as a replacement that could never happen. But it did allow me to realize that his lose was out of my hands and determined by a higher power. God bless you and I pray the with time the pain will ease, but it never goes away
