Received my signed print

I am so excited! I received my signed print from David Bowman. This is the print I wanted and received.

I have to say that I love this print. When I saw it, it reminded me of the little boy that I lost before he was born. We named this sweet baby, Brandon Jay. Unfortunately, I was never able to hold this precious son, but I have seen him in my minds eye. He was so wanted in our family. He was due September 10, 1992, but returned to his Heavenly Father on April 1, 1992, to serve a special mission in the Spirit world with my Grandpa Berkley. I was so crushed by the lose of Brandon at the time and could not find the answers to my questions of why so I went inactive in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for about three years. At the end of that three years and after considering suicide I realized that I had two young daughters that needed me desperately. Thank goodness for the power of prayer and the power of the priesthood I was saved from my dispair and received the answers I desperately wanted. I finally understood what my son was doing, who he was with and came away with the knowledge that I would see him again if I choose to live righteously. I'm still trying. ;) I have since lost one more child, a little girl, Peyton Nicole, who was due September 10, 1996, but returned to her Heavenly Father on March 11, 1992, and successfully carried to term one more daughter. My life is filled with estrogene with my three daughters, Aimee, Wendy and Kaitlyn, and I love them and my life with them. It is amazing what prayer, strength of a spouse and children can do for us. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!!
