September 12th

Angel baby,
We will never forget you. Your estimated due date was September 12th. A day I think we will never forget. I know you were not yet a fully formed baby, but your little heart flickering on that screen was definitely a life. Your life. The life your Daddy and I created. The life we one day couldn't wait to meet. Who's eyes would you have had? You probably would have been a tiny little thing like your Mommy and Daddy were when they were younger. Your sex was already determined at that point, would you have been our little boy or girl? Maybe it's easier that we will never know. For whatever reason your life was taken from us. And I hope your soul is now in a happy place.
I try not to dwell on the fact that this day was supposed to be the most amazing day of our lives. The day we finally would get to introduce you into this world. To meet you!
But we have such great news! We now have a new lil Pea growing inside. Your brother or sister? We will one day tell them about you. About your short time in our lives and what an impact you had on your family. We continue to be grateful that this new lil Pea is growing stronger each day. We hope and pray so much that we can keep this one. We have so many family, friends and even people we have never met praying for your brother or sister. This means so much to us.
So take care our Angel baby. We wish you were here with us. Know that we love you. We remember you today, as will we always. We love you and miss you more than words can ever describe.
Mommy & Daddy

*One of our friends made this after you left us. It made Mommy cry again but with a smile. I hope to hang this one day when I can look at it without tears and smile at you.*

  2. Your angel baby letter made me tear. Praying that I will be that strong when our 1st EDD comes up in a few weeks. Still praying for you and lil' pea!
