Although we never saw your face or held you in our arms, you still touched us in a special way.
We were so happy when the doctor said congratulation, you are having another baby. We rejoiced and celebrated. We went and bought a cake. Your brothers and sisters were really happy and started to pick out names straight away.
Then the scare came. We went to the hospital and the doctor said I don't know yet. There is something in the womb but I cannot see a heart beat. We prayed and all our friends joined in.
When the news came that you had died we all cried. We wanted to see you and hold you but it wasn't meant to be.
It is comforting to know that you will never know the pain that this life brings. You will have eternal happiness. Still we grieve what might have been.
Thank you God for the gift of new life. Thank you for all the blessings. Help us all over the next few weeks as we grieve.
