Oh, Baby M.
We lost you thirteen months ago. I would give anything to have you in my arms right now. I can just imagine how much our lives would have changed with you here with us. You would have been at least five months old now.
I've been planning a birthday surprise for your daddy. He'll be 30 next week. I know if you were here, we wouldn't be escaping the realities of life for a week. We would have done something, but we definitely wouldn't be going where we are going.
Your father and I miss you a lot, but we aren't the only ones.
You see, I've been writing on this little blog for a few years now, and we have people who would have loved to meet you too. People who have been praying for us to be parents and were just as upset as we were to not get a chance to meet you.
You are loved Baby M. You are missed, too.
Not just by us, but by a lot of people.
Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day. We'll be lightening a candle in memory of our baby who we never got to hold, but who we will never forget. Will you join us at 8 pm EST as we light a candle to pray for Baby M and for the other babies that have been lost?
Band Back Together is compiling a list, please feel free to go add your baby to the list.
We will never forget Baby M and I know you won't either. This community has been an amazing support system.
To all of my friends who have lost their children as well, I love you and I am sorry. I will never forget your losses, either. xo
