Patti, thank you for sharing your silent birth story. You have (and are) experiencing what every one of us fears- the loss of your baby whom you lovingly grew for 9 long months. My heart goes out to you and your family as you process your grief. Please don't apologize for "bringing sadness" to us; what you're experiencing is part of life and it connects us. We're all sending love and support and the deepest empathy a parent's heart can share.

Thank you for all your kind words, thoughts, prayers, love and support. They really mean alot. He will be buried on Wednesday in a graveside service. He will wear the gown that my brothers and sister and I were all baptized in. Still can't believe we're having to plan all of this. Just laid in bed last night looking at all the pictures of him. Just so beautiful and perfect. I even slept with one of them under my pillow. Surprisingly I got some decent sleep last night.

I will make it over to Pregnancy and Birth Loss in the next couple of days. To those girls who posted here who have experienced losses this year(Len, coleslaw,debtsmommy, allyrae, hoosierdiapermama) I know each of your stories and cried and felt so awful for each of you. I never thought I would be joining your group. The group that never wants a new member, but will support and help you if you need to be there. You are all further on your journeys with this so I am sure you will have some words of advice and a shoulder to cry on for me. I know I will need it.

Thanks again.

Patti

Patti Ann,,,,,my dear sister. I posted a picture and tribute to your precious little boy on my blog....http://www.emmasage.blogspot.com

I thought that you might like to share the Christening gown that your little angel will wear as he is laid to rest.

He was absolutely beautiful....I have his picture on my mantle and will keep him close to my heart all the days of my life.

I love you and I'm so glad to know that you got some rest last night.

I am here for you........always.

Peace and love, your big sis,

I can't imagine the pain of your loss. It sounds like you have a wonderful husband and a very supportive marriage. Cling to that during this very difficult time. You will be in my thoughts.
