Mourning our beautiful granddaughter Eden Rain






On Saturday May 21, 2016 our beautiful granddaughter was stillborn.

She never took one breath and we never got to hear her cry or see her open her beautiful little eyes.

It has rocked us to the core and it is something that no family should ever have to go through.

Labor was progressing fine and then something went horribly wrong.

You have never known such heartbreaking sorrow until you watch a mommy and daddy bathe their
 lifeless little daughter and handle her with such tender loving care.

The funeral was today...we shed many tears and we cried as we watched her mommy and daddy
carry her tiny little casket down the steps and out into their own SUV...

the only time she will ride with them as a family.

Mommy and daddy named her

EDEN RAIN BOOTHMAN

Please pray for all of us in the days, weeks, months and years to come.

We will never be the same.

She is so beautiful. Her name is so beautiful...and the meaning. I am so so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for all of you. May Jesus ease the depths of your heartache. I pray that you will find shelter in His wounded side. He is with you and will not leave. His love a balm for your broken hearts. Peace be with you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your post was an instant strike to my heart. It is hard to believe 54 years have passed since I lost my daughter in the same manner. The norm at that time was to keep me under drugs, so I never saw her or held her. Her passing is still painful after all these years.

My prayers are with you all. God bless.

Sandy, these photos break my heart but I am so grateful they have them. Stillborn is as much a loss as any later in life and along with it the dreams of that child as part of a family. My heart goes out to you all.

My Heart goes out to you. My Sister was stillborn 65 years ago and our family never got over it. She was a perfect little baby and it looked like she was just sleeping. Saying prayers and lighting a candle.

Dear Sandi,
Eden Rain is perfect. I'm so sorry she left this world too soon. Our first daughter was premature & lived three days. The loss of a child is unlike anything I have ever been through. I'm sorry that you, Eden's parents, & your family are feeling this terrible pain & emptiness. May I suggest Sufficient Grace Ministries for Women. They have a website as well as a Facebook page. Prayers for all of you have been sent up and will continue to be sent. If I can help in any way please email me.
With sympathy & Christian love,

I am so sorry. 45 years ago we lived an hour or so by air from the nearest Naval hospital in Naples Italy. We were sent to the hospital two weeks before our due dates. The lady I was with went into labor and I timed her contractions. Sadly, her baby was stillborn. I have never forgotten. Not an October 13th has gone by that I haven't remembered Carol's baby. Little Eden will always be remembered. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Oh my. Heavenly Father--wrap this family in Your tender loving arms. We know You weep with them in their pain and loss and only You understand and can offer peace and strength for the days, months and years to come. Fill their bodies and minds and hearts with the strength for each moment. Thank you that this precious little one is safe with You.

Sandi, it's been so very long since I have frequented any blogs but after seeing your comment today on FB I felt compelled to visit yours. Your hearts must be broken into so many little bits .. it's hard to mentally conceive that she was so beautifully perfect but didn't make it. These tragedies in our lives can rock us to our very core.. I'm sure your family is in shock and that's to be expected.. I will surely be praying now that I am aware of your precious loss for God to heal your family's.. heart's, minds and souls. I can only say and I don't know if it right or not ..that if she can't be in the arms of her family that she is in the arms of our sweet Lord Jesus.. nonetheless I know you would prefer her to be here. I'm glad you had a wonderful organization help you through such a time(there are some wonderful and caring people out there in our world) and that they were able to capture such beautiful photos of Eden Rain with all of you.. True your lives will never be the same because Eden came into them and touched them in a mighty way.. With Loving thoughts and my Sincerest Sympathy..Sara
