The Perfect Cadence was birthed from a loss.
In July of 2014, we were 8 ½ months pregnant with our first daughter, Cadence Sabrina. Our family and friends celebrated her impending arrival with not one, but two AMAZING baby showers. We danced. We ate. We decorated onesies. It was one of the best days of our lives!
We found ourselves staring at all of the gifts Cadence had received in awe. In that moment, we thought “there are living, breathing people in this world that don’t have as much love as our baby has and she hasn’t even gotten here!” Our village of family and friends showered us and our baby with so much love. We could not have been more grateful and humbled.
Less than a week later, we learned that Cadence’s heart suddenly stopped beating.
Losing our daughter was a tremendous blow. While in the delivery room, at the cemetery, and every day since then, the one thing that continues to provide us comfort is the knowledge of how much she was loved even before she entered this world. The memories and pictures of our shower bring us so much joy and peace, despite the confusion and pain from losing her. Cadence was one loved baby and we know she would want other babies to feel that love and welcoming energy too!
Through The Perfect Cadence we provide celebrations for families who, for whatever reason, do not have the same village and/or resources that we have been blessed with. We also want to support families that have experienced a loss, both at the time of their loss and when they try again to add to their family!
