Calm in the Storm

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
–Isaiah 41v10

As you may have already heard, we lost our baby girl at 36 weeks pregnant. I’ll be sharing more of her birth story with some photos in the near future. Until then, we wanted to give you a brief update.


Derek, oh my sweet Derek. He’s handling this all so well. We have cried, weeped, shared our fears, lost dreams and shared our broken hearts with each other. He’s so brave and has been taking care of me and our sweet girl so so well. We can tell Journey senses the loss in our family. She’s quite tender and compassionate. Anytime I cry, she comes over to comfort me. To hug, kiss and pat my shoulder. Her compassion level is off the charts and we can’t wait to see how that develops in her life. 

And now for me, I’m doing ok. I feel so many things in so many ways at so many times. Surrounding myself with love, support and art seems to bring great relief for me. I’m so incredibly thankful for all the support from friends and family from all over the states. 

We’ll be updating soon on some ways you can help us honor Haven’s life. Subscribe to our HarveyMade newsletter to make sure you get our updates!
