This past Sunday was International Bereaved Mother's Day. You can read about it here.
In honor of these days, I wrote my baby a letter:
Dear Bootsie –
I want you to know how much I love you and think about you every day. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to keep you safe. I miss you so much and wish you were still growing inside of me.
I want you to know that even though I never got to hold you, I’ll never forget the brief time we had together. I had so much love for you the moment I knew you were there. The first time I saw you move was one of the best moments of my life. You were created out of love. Your daddy and I love you and wanted you so much.
We know you’re looking down on us and you’ll always watch over us. And you’ll guide us in our journey to have our Earth baby. I want you to know that even though we’re moving forward, we can never move on from you. You forever changed us. Your brothers and/or sisters will always know about you. And I want you to know that just because we never held you doesn’t mean we love you any less than the babies we will hold.
You’re forever in our thoughts and hearts.
Love, Your Mommy
