The Hills Here We Come

I am very excited to report that I am going on a girls trip to Hollywood! I told Jon that I really wanted to do some traveling before we had kids. I didn't do that so now that I am in a stand still I have decided to travel! I am going with my good friends, Beth, Carrie and Julie. We are all big fans of the show "The Hills" and are going to definitely check out the same hot spots they frequent. We are very excited! We are staying at Hotel Roosevelt which is a Hollywood landmark and celeb fav. We will all be very disappointed if we don't see some celebs on this trip. We are also going on one of those cheesy star tours so we can check out the stars homes. We will be true tourists without the fanny packs! :) Our hotel is awesome! You can check it out at http://www.hotelroosevelt.com/ We also plan to go to Les Deux, S Bar or Goa at night. We will also probably try to do lunch at the Ivy and drink some coffee and celeb watch. We also want to try to go to the beach and Rodeo Drive. I hope we can get it all done! :) I will definitely post lost of pics when we get back!

Forever My Child

We received a charm from the hospital with a beautiful poem I want to share. This charm was donated by a couple who lost their triplets. They were so touched by the memory packet the hospital gives you they decided to donate something to everyone. I thought that was so special and was so touched by this poem.

You are a Precious Child Created out of love, a blessing from above.
I've adored you from the start,
and your little footprints touched my heart.
A single teardtop represents the millions I have cried.
My life never the same since you died.
I wish you could have stayed longer with me,
I'd watch you grow into all you could be.
Although we are apart,
You are always in my heart.
I dream of a joyful time when we will be reunited once again.
Thoughts of you make me smile,
You will always be My Forever Child.

Baby McCarty 4.3.08

Hello Everyone,

I am sad to report that Jon and I lost our precious child last week. You may think why is Brooke posting such a private matter??? I know a lot of you do not know and I would much rather people know then come and ask me how I am doing, tell me that I not showing much, the fears go on in my head. Anyway, so I wanted to at least let everyone know what was going on for that reason and to also ask you for your prayers. This is by far the hardest and most painful thing I have ever been through in my life. I now believe people who always told me you can't imagine how much love you will have for your child. I never got to meet my child alive but experienced four months of bliss while he was with me. Yes, it was a little boy. Life feels so unfair right now. We tried so hard to have a baby and then it was taken from us. My mind keeps wondering why is it so easy for others? Again, please pray for us to heal. Please don't be afraid to leave messages on my account or email me at Brooke@WeichertFT.com. I am saving everything and putting all together for a memory book of Baby Boy McCarty.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers,
