Since my last post, we were blessed with the best news we have EVER received….too quickly replaced by WORST heartache we have ever felt.

To the Child in My Heart
Precious, tiny, sweet little one
You will always be to me
So perfect, pure and innocent
Just as you were meant to be.

We dreamed of you and your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to come
And join our family.

We never had the chance to play,
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you, touch you now
And listen to you giggle.

I’ll always be your mother.
He’ll always be your dad.
You will always be our child,
The child that we had.

But now you’re gone…but yet you’re here.
We’ll sense you everywhere.
You are our sorrow and our joy.
There’s love in every tear.

Just know our love goes deep and strong.
We’ll forget you never-
The child we had, but never had,
And yet will have forever.

  2. Dear Shana and Adam

    Kathy and I want you to know how sorry we were to hear of your loss. Our hearts go out to you in this very trying and troublesome time . We can sense and know what you are going through . It has been 5 years since we lost our precious baby boy and the memories are as fresh now as they were 5 years ago. It does not matter, 24 years out of the womb or not even out of the womb the pain and heartache are still the same with its overwhelming cloud of sadness that just seems to engulf you at times. You guys hang in there and may Jesus wraps his arms around you and find comfort knowing that you all will be united in time and for all of eternity. Jesus says that we are without sorrow and strife and pain and suffering in this world d but joy does come in the morning and every tear will be wiped away and dearth will no longer have its sting. God Bless You Both
