The Loss of My Precious Baby Girl

My daughter, Jade, was born at 3:44 am on Wednesday, August 27, 2008. She was 2 lb 11 oz and 14 in long. I was only 27 weeks pregnant. She died on Saturday, August 30, 2008 at 12:47 pm due to Group B Strep and Sepsis.

I had waited 12 years for her and suffered two miscarriages prior to this pregnancy. Me, my son, and my husband were anxiously awaiting her arrival, only to have our hearts torn apart by grief.

Today is Monday, September 15, 2008, and the pain feels like it is going to bust out of my chest. Everyone has gone on with their lives, and the three of us are left to deal with this unimaginable grief on our own.

I'm soooo very sorry
by: Helen

When I read your story, I just cried for you. I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss and for what you have gone through for so many years. I know that there is nothing that I can say or do to make your pain go away, but I sure wish that there was.

Please, if you can, try to do something very important. Please continue to love each other very tenderly and be very kind to yourself. If a friend or family member asks if you need anything, don't hesitate to take them up on it, whether it's something big or even a hug. There's something about human contact with someone we trust that can be healing and can also help to release the huge grief that you have.

If I could, I would hug you right now. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss, and I pray that God will comfort you in a way that you will KNOW that it's his loving arms around you.

God bless you during this very difficult journey.

Love (and hugs),
