A Special Day
My 5 year old daughter,Katie, told me today, "Don't forget Mommy, it is a special day." I asked her why and she said "Because it is a special day for Isabella and all the other babies". And she is right. Today is a special day. Today we remember Isabella and all the other babies in Heaven. Today we will light candles at 7pm our time. I pray that even those who haven't lost a baby will do the same in memory of our Isabella and the other babies. To many people hide from the baby loss subject. It is time we talk about it, time we stop ignoring it. Time to honor these babies and the lives they had, even if they were short they lived! A human, a lasting, eternal soul, is present from conception. So even if these babies were gone before they ever got to meet their parents they were still a person, a person that deserves to be remembered.
"You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, so wonderfully you made me; wonderful are your works! My very self you knew; my bones were not hidden from you, When I was being made in secret, fashioned as in the depths of the earth. Your eyes foresaw my actions; in your book all are written down; my days were shaped, before one came to be"
