Okay, as many of you know I am pregnant with twins, but only one is still alive. I am delivering them on Monday. My mother has been arranging every thing with the funeral home for Isabella and today she came to me and asked if I wanted something in the newspaper and if I did I had to write it and she would get it to the funeral home who would then make sure it got put in the paper.
So... I need to write something announcing the birth of Vanessa... and then death of Isabella. How do I do that? I looked online for some kind of an example... but came up empty handed. I'm not asking any one to write it for me, but if anyone has any suggestions? I just don't know what to write... I don't know... What do you do write in this situation????
maybe put in two seperate announcements - the birth announcement of Vanessa and the death announcement for Isabella - I am sorry you have to go through this - I can not imagine the pain you are going through right now

I'm so sorry to hear about Isabella. It is so very painful to labor and give birth when you know your baby is gone. But I will be praying you have strength and that Vanessa brings you and your family great joy, even in this time of grief. I can't imagine what it is like to grieve and be happy because of the birth of one baby and the death of another. I have not had to go through the torment of losing a twin, but I know that three women here have : GrlPisces (Barb), LauraKatee (Laura) and of course Jenny. They may have better words or advice for you.
Jenny's obituary she wrote for Genevive is very good. I would use that as an outline if I were you. I also think maybe "separating" the birth announcement and obituary is best.
But I would mention in the obituary that she has a living twin, like Jenny wrote.
Pretty much everything I was going to suggest is in Genevive's.
If you wanted to do a single birth announcement you could say that Isabella was born to Heaven on this date and time and is forever loved and remembered by her twin sister Vanessa born on this date and time.
