Ending a Wanted Pregnancy - Memorial Butterfly Garden

Bridger James:
I could not stop smiling the day I found out I was pregnant with you. I love you so much and so looked forward to raising you and spending the rest of my life as your mom. I am so so sorry I did not get the chance to meet you outside of my belly. Ali, your dad and I wanted so badly to shower you with love and hugs and kisses. I’m so sad your body and chromosomes let you down and I hope we have not let you down with our “choice” to end your suffering. We never had the choice of a healthy life for you son—and it’s the saddest feeling I’ve ever experienced. I miss carrying you in my belly and hope you felt the love that is very alive for you. I am thankful for our short time together and know you will stay with me for the rest of your life.
