Daddy's Here!

First off...Hello to everyone! haha. I know that I have not been the best about putting entries on here since Gabi passed. In all honesty it's a little difficult. This was my outlet to keep the world informed on how much of a fighter our little girl was. I was able to talk about how strong and beautiful she was, how incredible a little pee pee, and lower heart rate was ;-). Well now that she is gone what can I say to the world about the strength of my baby? Well let me see if I can come up with something...

  1. She gave her mother and father the strength to take a chance to create a better life for our family.
  2. Her mommy has found strength in her to enjoy and love the new baby growing inside her now.
  3. Her sister has become a more appreciative girl of time with family.
  4. Her daddy goes to her every day for strength and hope that he is making the right decisions to take care of our family.
  5. She has introduced us to life long friends that will always impact our lives.
  6. She gives mommy and daddy the strength to communicate and work through every feeling together, to stay as strong and loving as a family as we can.

Every day Gabi still impacts our lives. Whether it is to reflect on the things that made us happy, sad, or angry and to embrace those feelings and express them. To remember to apprecaite all the little things in the world that could be gone tomorrow. To give all of our loved ones an extra kiss or hug before we go. To take a chance in life, do the things that make us happy, and to love like it's your last moment on earth. And even as hard as it is somedays to put our faith and love in God. Even though we may question why on a constant basis, we still know it is his plan and his will that things happened exactly the way they did for a reason. To remember that even though we may question the why and even get angry at times, he knows that we still love him because he will always love us!

Ok...there is my entry for the next 3 months...LOL. Just kidding, I will do better at putting more on here. I promise to make the next entry more entertaining than this one!

So as a famous man says on a repeated basis "This is Jason Acker until next time...Goooood Day!"

I hope everything is going well with "baby bean Acker!" I am so excited for you all and can not wait to find out if you are having a boy or girl. Isn't it amazing how fast you grow to love someone when you can't see them or hold them. The more and more sonograms they do and the more and more our little one moves the more I feel attached to her (wow, how many times can one person say "more" in a sentence!!). So do you think you have felt any movements? I have found (and heard) that you can feel them earlier in the second pregnancy because you already know what the feel like. Well, again I am very excited for you all. You are always in my thoughts and prayers and Gabi will always hold a special place in my heart. I may have never met her in person but she has left a wonderful lasting impression in my heart. Take care...Amy

I got my copy of the DSG of KC newsletter today and as always immediately sat down to read it cover to cover. I am sorry I have not had the opportunity to meet you and never got a chance to meet your precious Gabi. She is beautiful.

I first saw Gabi's Grace team page during the Buddy Walk and of course it caught my attention since we also have a Gabrielle (Gabby's Glory) Our Gabby was born on 1/11/05. I don't know about you, but ever since my Gabby was born, I feel a special closeness to all families with these wonderful children. The fact that our daughters share a name and almost a birthday is amazing to me. I have two other daughters ages 5 and 11.

I am so happy for you and your pregnancy. I wish you the best of luck and will keep you all in my prayers. I hope to one day meet you in person.
