The best way to describe this whole experience is to look at the definition of Asher. Asher means fortunate, happy and blessed.
We feel fortunate we were able to open our hearts, make room for another person in our lives and experience all the joys associated with bringing a little one into this world.
We feel happy we were able to feel his kicks, hear his heart beat and eventually hold him in our arms.
We feel blessed that Asher joined our family and is righteous and valiant enough to return back to our Heavenly Father so soon.
One of my favorite personal touches in the memorial was this flower arrangement. I am certain hardly anyone knew or noticed, but this was a recreation of one of the arrangements we had at my grandfather, Charles' memorial a couple years ago. Since Charles is Asher's middle name, it only seemed fitting to incorporate him somehow.
In honor of Asher we are working with Teeny Tears to make a difference in the lives of families with stillborns.
