DiGeorge/22q deletion with heart and kidney defects

Laurel Calliope

I never expected this to happen, my love. I have been trying to be strong for your sisters and father. I still feel like everything we went through was just a bad dream. It is unreal how the pain of losing you still brings me to my knees. I force myself to think of the good memories of our time together. How much love Bryan and I felt towards you. How your big sisters glowed when you kicked them in my belly. How you would dance around when your dad would play drums and when I would sing. I miss you so much Laurel… I think the hardest part of all of this is knowing that I had to choose this. To make such a hard decision honestly turned my life upside down. I hope you know that I did this all out of love. I hope we will meet again someday and I truly hope you feel how much I love and miss you, my sweet little baby. You have taught me so much and have shown me how strong I am. We all send our love. Please watch over your sisters and know we cherish you, Laurel Calliope! You are my muse… my little bluebird… my sweet angel baby…💗

Until we meet again my love, your silly mom

Evie,

We gave you your name because we loved looking up at the stars in the evening. We only had 6 weeks together but they were the most amazing 6 weeks! We love you so much! We didn’t get to meet you in person but you stole our hearts! I’m sorry that Mommy wasn’t able to carry you to term. But just know that I love you with everything I have in me! Please watch over us! We love you Evie Snow!

(When pregnant I felt like the baby was a girl. Felt like when I was pregnant with my older daughters.)

Maternal issue

Avo Spencer

We never found out your gender and lost you before we could pick a name. You were our little avocado. You will forever be known as, Avo Spencer, our little avocado baby.

The first time we saw you move we lost you only moments later. We were heartbroken by your diagnosis and made the decision to let you go now so you and your mom could both stop suffering. We love you always and forever. You will forever be apart of us. Our lives are eternally changed. We made you a special avocado urn and will celebrate special moments with you always. May your soul be able to move on and be at peace.

Always and forever, Your Mom & Dad

Arceli Grace

My sweet little bun, you have been everything that I had ever wanted. Having to let you go was the best, but hardest decision I had to ever make and I wish it was a decision that I never had to make. I could never bring myself to make you live such an unfair life and everyday is a reminder of what could have been and it hurts so much , but I will forever love and cherish you.

Our Twins

Heartbreak
Once upon a time I thought I knew pain
But it turns out I didnt know what pain could be
I feel lost running in the rain
My heart tore out shredded to bits how could this happen to me
I thought that my little family would be complete
Apparently that’s not what god had planned for me
Losing not one but two little mini me’s
How am i suppossed to believe
That this is what god had planned for me
To rip out my heart and tear it to bits
I can’t believe that this is it
My heart aches so very much
That my babies i’ll never even get to touch
My soul will take a long time to recover from this
Just know my sweet loves that forever you will be missed
I don’t think i could go through this again
To go from one to two to none
My heart aches because this cannot be undone

Love Mommy and Daddy

My Beautiful Babies

My beautiful babies
I will never know you now
It really wasn’t meant to be
It’s too unfair, somehow.

Touched with grand love
Although for a small time
That feeling stays forever
And forever you are mine.

But hiding the grief
And fighting back the tears
Will be part of me now
For the rest of my years

A curse of disbelief
For you two mean so much,
My 2 beautiful babies
Our love is always in touch.

I am blinded by tears
And I have a gaping space
My two precious twins.
I will never replace.

But forever you both are
And forever you will be
Part of my family
And the void that is in me.

You are what completes me and
The void that fills me

Love mum, dad, 4 sisters and 4 brothers

very high risk pregnancy and childbirth

Robert Gain

There are no words to express how much we love you. There would never be enough time to be together. But we had to let you go so soon. It broke our hearts and also showed us that in the dark moments of deep sorrow, the light of compassion and ultimate love shines far brighter than ever 💖
We miss you every single moment of our lives, our beloved son Robert.

With love, Mommy and Daddy

Our sweet baby George. The thought of having you scared me when I first found out I was pregnant with you. When we knew we were losing you, we were devastated. You are my firstborn and so incredibly loved. You made me a mother and taught me that I could love a baby. You brought me and your father closer than anything could have. Because of you, we are stronger. You are always in my thoughts and will never be forgotten. I look forward to the day I can see you again. We love you.

Myelomeningocele, Hydrocephalus, Chiari II malformation

Cordelia Constance Bond

Little Snowdrop.
(Author unknown)

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn’t bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.

And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
For every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

Love you forever, Māmā , Daddy, big sister Evelyn, and little Rainbow brother, Desmond.

I never would have believed how much I could love someone I never met.
In loving you and losing you and loving you still, in watching that love unfurl and spread through my being like frost on a windowpane, I have learned what unconditional love means and what it sometimes requires of us.
It’s a beautiful gift. It has remade me utterly.
I’d still give it back if I could have you, alive and healthy, instead.

Love, Mom

While we never held you in our arms, you left a great impression on our lives. You taught us to treasure every moment as a family, you taught us that it is okay to cry in front of our living son and discuss difficult emotions with him, you taught us to lean on family and friends and ask for help when we need it, you taught us the importance of empathy and listening to other people’s experiences, and you taught us to advocate for what is important to us and to advocate for others who may not be ready or able to do so themselves. You changed our lives and you are forever in our hearts.
