Thank you Missy...it's just crazy how quickly your life can go from "almost perfect" to completely "ruined" in such a short period of time....I should be holding him in my arms right now....and my heart hurts because I'm not

I am so sorry.

I can just see the heartbreak on your faces. I know exactly how that feels. I am so sorry that you had to feel that too. I wish I could say it goes away but it doesn't. But the love never goes away either. That perfect boy had the perfect parents who will always love him.

He is such a precious gift, for however long you had him. I'm sorry it was shorter rather than longer.

Thank you girls

Yesterday was harder than I thought it would be DH *HATES* that all these dates just stick out in my mind and I can't ignore them But it's just crazy because *most* women can look back over the year that they conceived as they stare in amazement at their little baby...I don't have that luxury and not only is it painful, but it's scary. I can't fathom losing Aaliyah. I couldn't fathom losing, Asher, Noah, Tres OR Evan either, but I feel like I've proven myself as a Christian and I just want to bring a baby home

I can remember sitting here with tears in my eyes when you lost him.
I don't know how you felt, but I imagined it to be like my worst sadness x 1000.



I am so looking forward to seeing you holding Aaliyah and smiling! That is going to be such a wonderful day!

I'm so sorryhon.. the memories are both a blessing and a huge pain.. My twins should have been born this week and I am so sad about it as well but a beautiful woman said to me," What a blessing that those beautiful souls saw fit to call you mommy, even if it was for such a short time " .. Some may find them to be empty words.. but in my darkest hours these past few days they comfort me.. almost like a balm... He will always be with you as will your other angel babies, watching over you and hubby and future siblings.. best of luck and hugs during this tough time

Brandi, I know I don't belong on this board, but I wanted to say...you're such an amazingly strong woman. I am in awe of your strength and the beautiful light that shines in your face whenever you post a picture. I've been following your blog and your story since you went into the hospital with Evan. My heart broke for you then, as it does again today. You have walked a road that most people can't even say they've looked down, let alone taken a step on. You're already an amazing mother to those 4 boys, and the 2 girls that are coming into your life this year are the luckiest little girls ever.
