  1. I'm keeping you in my prayers. I wish there was more I could do for you!
    Big Hugs!

  2. A reader posted a prayer request for you on our blog, riggsfamilyblog.com

    I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to your children, too soon. I pray that God comforts you until you are reunited.

  3. Lauren,
    My eyes are full of tears for you. I'm praying for healing of heart and body. Like so many, I wish there was more I could do. Please let me know if you think of anything you need.

  4. I am praying that God will heal and comfort you from the inside out.

  5. Praying for your recovery and healing.

  6. My heart has been heavy for you ever since I heard of the loss of your precious babies. I am praying for you and for your healing. I am so sorry that you are having to go through such a horrible ordeal with your health now. I hope things get better really quickly.

  7. I am so sorry to hear about your four precious babies. I lost my daughter almost 2 years ago and I cannot begin to imagine your loss and heartache right now. I pray that God will heal your body and begin to heal your heart. I pray that you and your husband will draw closer together than you ever have before. A wise friend told me 3 words at Madeline's funeral--God and time. You and your husband will be in my prayers.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
