I'm so, deeply sorry for the loss of your sweet baby boy. There really are no words to express how sad I feel for you, Curtis and Tempest. I hope you are able to rest and heal from your physical ordeal, and find some peace and healing emotionally, too.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

((((mama)))) Please don't hesitate to come and talk or rant or whatever you need to do. I am so sorry for your loss. I'd be happy to see more pictures of your beautiful babe if you ever want to share them.

I'm so sorry for your loss. He was a beautiful baby and those pictures are priceless. I will be thinking of you and lighting a candle for your little boy.

I am so thankful to hear your story.Please keep telling it.It is important, you are important and Jericho is important.I too faced a decision whether to have an abortion based on testing or go on with my pregnancy, I chose to go on and was at peace with my decision also.Jericho is so beautiful and what a lucky little one to have been able to spend some time with such a wonderful family.
Thank you and peace to all of your family.

I am in tears...that was so beautifully written and touching. I am so sorry for what you had to go through and so glad that you got eight months with your beautiful little boy. *hugs* I know there's nothing I can say to make it better, but know that we are here for you and love you. The Goddess holds him in her arms and will return him to you someday.

Brightest blessings on you and your family.

Oh mama, I read your story last week and I so wish I could say something or write something to help you with this emptiness. My heart is with you, your hubby and especially your daughter.

Jericho

And I know it has been said, but he is beautiful.
