First of all I wanted to say, I have not been through what you women have. I have read some stories, and seen the beautiful pictures of your amazing little angels. I think about you ladies daily, and I visit this board often, because it breaks my heart, and you ladies give me courage. You're the bravest, most courageous women I have seen, and I look up to you for that. No part of my being could ever know what you have felt, and I'm so sorry for the losses.

My friend, Heather, lost her baby a year ago. She was 5 months old, so it's a bit different, but another friend wrote this poem about baby Rory. I wanted to share with you ladies, even though it's a different story, I hoped you would like it.

The reason i believe in angels - is God sent one down to me.
A fragrant kiss, no softer touch, a breath more soothing than the sea.
I held that angel in my arms- and gently kissed her head.
I'd sit and watch my angel sleep- so precious in her bed.
I swear that i saw wings sometimes- when i'd rock her late at night.
Her voice- a sweet symphony... her smile so full of light.
I treasure each moment i held divinity- and- i can't stop believing, even though
God took my angel back from me.
