Oh no. I'm so so sorry. Please know that my thoughts will be with you in the coming time. And please don't feel unwelcome here in this group! We are all part of an endless stream of mothers - and your experience is one of the experiences we mothers must all be prepared for. I cannot say how sad I am. Strength and peace to you.

I'm so sorry mama. I've come to this thread a few times and I'm just not sure how to say how sorry I am that this happened to your loving family.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am coming to this thread very late, but I still felt the need to respond and let you know that I am thinking of you, your little boy and your family. I am so sorry for your loss. I wish you much healing and many blessings. Please do remain on this board if that is what you would like. We will miss you if you go but will understand as well. Thank you as well for sharing the pictures.

Sending you love,

Kelli

Thank you so much for sharing your time with Jericho with us. And thank you for sharing pictures of those few precious moments you had to spend together. I'm sure this must be so hard for you and I cannot find words that seem even a bit appropriate. You and your family are in my thoughts. I wish you all well and hope that you get all the support you need to help you through this time.

You are certainly welcome here in this club as we look on you as a sister and a friend. You'll always be one of us, honey. I know it must feel strange since your path has changed so drastically. But you're a mum, just as much as any other here. Jericho is in your heart and you will always be his mum.

I read your journal mama, and I am so very sorry. The tears just won't stop coming. Your posts were beautiful to read.. you are so very strong. I wish I had words to help comfort you. Just know you are not alone.
