As how well I know what you mean... Katlyne never came home from the NICU she spent her full life there. We celebrated each and every day she was alive. We had weekly birthday parties (since the doctors told us she would not live 1 week) all the way to have a HUGE 3 month birthday party. For her first birthday we went back to the NICU to celebrate her life with a memorial balloon release and a donation drive for lulliby tapes and players for the other babies. Since Katlyne LOVED listening to music (She mostly listen to John Tesh Worship CD).

Everyone handles the dates differently, but if you need someone to chat with to help you through out the days please feel free to e-mail me at trakapp@charter.net.

PS... The memorial tribute at my signature is a tribute that the funeral home put together for us. Of course, it is sad to look at but it does show the love and wonderful life of our little angel girl....

I feel like I cannot celebrate Josiah's brief life. Of course he
was a blessing, but I can't help and feel bad for the hard time
he had in the NICU. (The only place where he lived his life.)
Oh, how I wish things would have been different for him, but I
know wishing will not change anything.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Mu due date was a very hard day for me as Katlyne was already born but living on a vent. It was very emotional where the nurses hung up a sign happy due date Katlyne but it was anything but a happy day for me.

Two weeks later we loss our little girl to BPD (damaged to her lungs caused by the vent) we have learned how to celebrate Katlyne's life and all the blessings and joy she brought to us. Yes, at first it was very hard but I thank God each and everyday for a wonderful time we had together.....

Hi Gloria,

I'm very sorry for your loss. I know how much you miss Josiah. The due date can be such an emotional time. Three months is a short time after such a huge loss. It will take time. I'll be thinking of you.

Hugs,
Lisa

February 14 would have been my due date. "What an appropriate
due date!" people would often tell me. Now it's just a day
that I have been dreading ever since my son passed away.
It is very painful to think that so much has happened in the last 3 months and he...really should STILL be in my tummy. We miss him so
much. Our lives are forever changed. We no longer have the same
dreams; aspirations and hope...
