This is a letter I wrote to my child after my first miscarriage. I have decided to share it for inclusion in the Pregnancy Loss Week Blog Carnival.
Please join us at Fertility Flower for the week of August 23-27, 2010 where there will be featured articles, posts, and artwork about pregnancy loss.
Your dad and I wanted you to come to us so much. When we learned that you were growing inside me we were happy and we told everyone we know. Even though no one knew you and no one could see you, everyone was happy to learn of your existence. And so for a few weeks I went about my daily activities contemplating your presence in me. I felt so beautiful and special growing you inside me. I wondered about your personality. When I learned that you might leave me so soon, I cried. I shouldn't be sad because I know that Jesus loves little angels like you so much. But I still am. And everyone that knew about you shares our sorrow. When I learned that your soul left your little body I was comforted by the fact that my body still held you. You are so precious to me, even in death. But now your body has left me too. I rejoice at having had you with me, even if for so short a time. I loved you and I love you still, my beautiful child.
