tonight's mass

I think Josh's post sums it up... http://joshsblog.greenfamily.net/2009/04/mass.html

Love you all,


  1. Lauren,
    I think about you, Josh and the babies so often. I'm glad so many people have been able to reach out in their own ways to let you know how much your babies' lives have affected them. You're such a special famiy!

    Love from KS,

  2. Lauren, I just spent the last hour re-reading your blog posts for this year. My heart still breaks for your guys - in the midst of it breaking for us, too. I seriously don't know what I would do without my faith, and I am so glad to see you are strong in that regard, as well.

    I left my contact info as asked on the greenfam contacts site. I hope you got it, and please let me know if not.

    BTW, I love your precious 16-week ultrasound profile pics. Yours were such beautiful little babies.


  3. My prayers go out to you and Josh everyday. You are both very strong people. Your children were beautiful and will always be remembered!

    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.
