Some girls in my PR asked to see some of my scrapbook pages, and I wanted to share with you ladies a couple I made for Cora.

We decided to have Cora's body cremated, and then spread the ashes on the water of Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton mountains.

It says "Goodbye my beautiful angel, rest in this beautiful place. We will always miss you. Please wait patiently for us and watch over us as our guardian angel. We love you, our dear Cora."

And I also wanted to share a poem I wrote for her shortly after losing her. I was on a different forum then and there were two other ladies who had recently lost babies, so it is dedicated to them too.

"A Mother's Unrequited Love"

In loving memory of Cora, Jules, and Trace:

Nothing can match a mother's joy
To learn there's a life inside
Nothing can compare to the pain she feels
when she discovers that life has died
Something inside you rips apart
and every part of you silently screams.
Nothing in your life seems fair anymore,
it's torn apart all of your dreams.

You have so many numberless questions,
to be answered only by the Lord above.
You ask most, "What's the reason
for a mother's unrequited love?"

As time goes by the pain lessens
but nothing can ever fill the loss.
You remember all the plans you had
for all the years you could see across.
And you hope that life goes on,
that your baby's short time isn't the end.
You hope one day you'll hold her again,
that maybe your broken heart will mend.

The human soul and heart are eternal,
that's the mercy of the Lord above.
And one day I hope to find the reason
for a mother's unrequited love.

That's beautiful! I had bought a scrapbook for Bryan Luke. One of the few things I'd bought for him before he died. I have all the things I want to put in it. I have everything together and I haven't been able to sit and do it yet. Maybe I'll start working tonight. Thank you for sharing yours.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

Those are the two pages I have in my main scrapbook. She has one of her own, with all the pictures we took and pictures of the flowers and all the cards we got in it. It took me about 18 months to be able to sit down and do it though. It was very cathartic though. I cried and cried and cried and cried, but once it was done, I felt that I had healed more than I expected.
