Parents of lost babies and potential of all kinds: come here to share the technicolour, the vividness, the despair, the heart-broken-open, the compassion we learn for others, having been through this mess — and see it reflected back at you, acknowledged and understood.

for one and all > She would have turned 5 this week

My little miss S, she was supposed to so many things this coming fall. Turn 5, start kindergarden, start gymnastics again after summerbreak. Be excited over all of those things, only a year until first grade. But it ended this day five years ago, she (we) never got those shoul have been. Five years ago today here heart stoppes bedring under my heart.

The love grows each day, the pride likewise. Our family loves here, and thats what we're gonna celebrate later this week on the day she was borned. She made me mom for the third time, this magical, little girl. So perfect, so innocente. She is constantly teaching me about life, she gives me new friends, she let me help other parents going through the same as we did, give the some sort of comfort and hope for the future.

Dear little miss S, my forever baby, We love you more than words can say, you will forever stay in our hearts.
