Fritzy's First Birthday

Today is the date! I don't think the first weekend of May will ever be the same. Randy and I will always have the bittersweet memory of seeing a beautiful little child that was not meant to stay earthbound. I have thought about this day coming for a long time. I replayed the events of that time in my head for days, leading up to this weekend. I know if there is a place where people acknowledge the loss of a baby to pe/hellp, it is here.

I can remember Fritzy's birth and the hour or two that night that we held him and loved him. And the next day, when we got to spend several hours with him. It was as if time stood still for just a moment. And what followed was so excruciating I thought I might die of sadness. What a difference one year makes. I may move on, but I will forever be changed. As we all know, you never, ever forget. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Fritzy and thank him for all that he has given me.

Bless all of you and thank you for all the support and education you provide because without the preeclampsia foundation, I don't think I would be where I am today. Love, Shannon

Because of Fritzy you got to experience that amazing mother love. I only wish that he was here with you eating cake and opening presents.

So so sorry for your loss. It's true that when we loose a child our lives are forever changed. I lost my daughter almost three years ago and the pain at times can still be unbearable. I miss her so much as you do your little boy. My heart goes out to you.
