Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Today is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day. It a sad thing and to know there are billions of people out there that have experience this including me. Most of you remember me talking about my pregnancy lost at 18 weeks pregnant. 18 weeks is suppose to be the safe time but not always apparently. I was to far gone to just stay home and miscarriage I was on that borderline of stillborn. I was induce and my baby Collyn was removed from me all while I was put asleep. Never got the chance to see him. But I have the ultrasound pictures and stuff and them I cherish. This day is a sad day but always a happy day since I get to remember my little Angel baby Collyn. So to everyone that has experience pregnancy or infant or child loss my prayers are with you today in the remembrance of you loss.

Here is a poem I read on another bloggers site and it brought me to tears so I had to share.

What Makes A Mother
I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today
I asked, "What makes a Mother?"
And I know I heard him say
A Mother has a baby
This we know is true
But, God, can you be a mother
When your baby's not with you?

Yes, you can he replied
With confidence in his voice
I give many women babies
When they leave it is not their choice
Some I send for a lifetime
And others for the day
And some I send to feel your womb
But there's no need to stay.

I just don't understand this God
I want my baby here
He took a breath
and cleared his throat
And then I saw a tear
I wish I could show you
What your child is doing Here
If you could see your child smile
With other children and say
"We go to earth to learn our lessons
of love and life and fear,
but My mommy loved me so much
I got to come straight here!"
I feel so lucky to have a Mom who
had so much love for me
I learned my lessons very quickly
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day
When she goes to sleep
On her pillow is where I lay
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
And whisper in her ear
"Mommy, Please don't be sad today
I'm your baby and I am here"

So you see my dear sweet one
Your children are okay
Your babies are here in My home
And this is where they'll stay
They'll wait for you with Me
Until your lessons there are through
And on the day that you come home
they'll be at the gates waiting for you

So now you see
What makes a Mother
It's the feeling in your heart
It's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start

My prayers are with you as well! I, too, have suffered a miscarriage but I was only 9 weeks along. In "those days" they didn't do routine sonograms so I don't have a picture of my little lost one but it is nice that you have that memory in pictures. My heart goes out to you and all those women (and men) who have suffered the loss of a child!
