But I know you would have been great. But you deserved a life without suffering.
We love you. You will forever and always be our first son.

To my dear, precious, beautiful daughter – I love you so so so much. I miss you so much. I wish you were healthy and I could still be pregnant with you today and looking forward to raising you.
My little one – you have made such a huge impact on my heart and on my soul. You have forever changed me for the better. I am so glad for the gift of having known you. I will always fondly remember feeling your adorable little kicks inside me, how they helped me get through bad days at work. I will always remember how much love I felt for you when I saw and held you after giving birth to you.
I want you to know that you are always on my mind and in my heart, and that I long to honor you in whatever I do in my life.

Agenesis of the corpus callosum

Asher

We named you Asher because it means fortunate, blessed, happy one and from how wiggly you were and your ultrasound smiles, it was truly fitting. We are so grateful for the time we got to spend with you feeling your kicks and wiggles, sharing banana pancakes, dance parties, taking you to meet your Grandpa in Anza, Daddy’s first sip of alcohol with his son and singing to you in my Mornings with Ash. You brought us so much happiness and love. We only wish we could have had longer, could have held you in our arms. Losing you has left a hole in our hearts that will never go away, but they are more full than ever before. Though we had to let you go, we find joy and peace in knowing you will never suffer and will always be our happy one. We miss you so much.

“No there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do, to make you feel my love.”

Always know this, our sweet baby boy, you are so wanted and loved. We will carry you in our hearts forever.

Sweet Pea

Are there rocking chairs in Heaven
where little babies go?
Do the angels hold you closely
and rock you to and fro?

Do they talk silly baby talk
to get a smile or two,
and sing the sleepy lullabies
I used to sing to you?

My heart is aching for you,
my angel child so dear.
You brought such joy into my life
the short time you were here.

I know you’re in a happy place
and in God’s loving care.
I dream each night I’m rocking you
in Heaven’s rocking chair

You were the baby we never knew we could have. What I would give to hold you in my arms.

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.

You were everything I wanted and more; a baby conceived out of pure love and happiness. I am truly sorry for making the decision to send you to a better place. I didn’t want you to live a life of pain and suffering. It was the most difficult decision I have ever made in my life. I thought long and hard about it. I prayed. I had close family and friends pray for us, and yet every bone in my body led me to decide that you were better off in heaven with your grandma and uncle. I wanted nothing more than to have you, my precious baby boy, to have you grow up strong and healthy and in my arms. I will meet you once again my baby, Alejandro Ruben, until then please watch over me. I love you with all my heart and soul. 💙💙💙

So blonde and straight and bright
Like the laugh I heard in all my dreams
With your brother and sister by your side
They will see your face one day too
For now I’ll teach them to look to heaven to see you.
I close my eyes and see you in my heart
It is where you came from your very start.

grow in my heart until it’s so big
It carries me away.

Seven

My sweet boy Seven had been about two years in the making. After multiple failed IUI cycles, I underwent IVF. I conceived on the first try. I remember my doctor telling me he chose this 12 cell embryo because it was “more advanced” than the others. I was over the moon when the clinic called to tell me it had worked. I was instantly in love. At 11 weeks, I did the cfDNA, thinking I would just have extra peace of mind. I was positive for T18 and confirmed about a month later by amniocentesis. That month wait between the cfDNA and amniocentesis was difficult but lovely. I chose to lean into enjoying our time together. I sang you songs and talked to you daily. I also promised you I wouldn’t let you suffer if I could help it. So on 2/21/20, I parted ways with you physically. You made me a Mother and I am forever grateful.
Seven, you’ll always be on my mind and in my heart.

Baby, I’m so sorry. I wanted nothing more than to be your mama. To hold you in my arms, to nurse you, to love you, to watch you grow. You may have never taken a breath in this world but you mattered. You left your mark. You have forced us to recognize our strength and love for one another.

I wish I could have one day with you to tell you that you will be loved endlessly.

We will miss you forever. We love you my dear boy.

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.

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

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

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.

Your father and I will be forever grateful for every single second you were with us. I promise we will never stop honoring you or loving you. No matter what, you will always be our firstborn son and I will spend the rest of my life honoring your life with love. Thank you for choosing us to be your parents. I miss you. I love you with every single piece of my heart and soul and nothing will ever change that. I love you, Noah. I can’t wait to see and hold you again someday.

A missing son
A missing brother
An empty space in my heart that can never be filled
As long as I’m living
My baby you will be

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum

Andrew

Andrew was the boy that was supposed to be here with his 3 sisters. He was and still is very much wanted. There is a very special place in my heart for him. I thank Andrew for letting me be his mom for a short while and for the little moments we spent together. I hope to see him again one day.

Charlotte Illene “Sweet Pea”

Our darling baby girl, how I wish I were holding you instead of typing this. So many moments I’ve dreamt of having with you were taken from us, but the 13 weeks my womb housed you were the sweetest gift. I still see you everywhere I go. We love you, Sweet Pea.

Baby girl

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.

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.

I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life
I know you’ll be a star
In somebody else’s sky
But why
Why
Why can’t it be
Why can’t it be mine?
