I am so sorry for your loss

you know, I looked at the picture and my first thought was "Oh my gosh, how beautiful." what a tender and sad moment.

I wish you peace.

I'm really sorry to hear this, many hugs. I think it's beautiful you were able to birth Matthew like that and hold him until he passed. I've never seen a baby so small (except in pregnancy books), it's really touching to see, what a treasure those pictures must be. I wish you and your family lots of strength.

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Matthew. He is a beautiful baby and I'm sorry he could not stay. Thank you for sharing his pictures with us. I'm sorry you had to be faced with such a choice but I'm happy you made it through alive, have they been able to control the bleeding now? I've been keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Take good care of yourself mama
