Yeah. It's hard to explain to people who haven't been through it. I am so happy, I love Kate so much, but some days it's hard not to think about what Devin would have been like. There will always be sadness... and it doesn't mean I am not thankful for what I DO have!
My Dad is kinda like this. Next time I'm going to ask him "What if one of the twins died at birth? KNowing what you know now about loving them and their place in the family, do YOU think have at least one surviving child is enough?"
I agree with everything the other ladies said. My sister gave me a necklace with a forget-me-not flower and my birthstone plus Matthew's birthstone on it shortly after Matthew died. I put it on when I got it and I've never taken it off. I feel like I can't take it off. I've debated getting a tattoo of Matthew's footprints on me so I can take him with me everywhere I go but I haven't done it yet- I'm really not a "tatoo person" but I really want to do this I think. I think we'll all be remembering the babies we lost especially in the next month but that doesn't mean we're not thankful for what we have. Even though Matthew isn't here, I'm thankful I had him in my life for the short time I was pregnant with him.
Annalise is hoping to be a big sister on June 28, 2014. Forever missing her big brother, Matthew, stillborn on July 1, 2010.
