First I wanted to thank you all for your loving words and support. It means a lot to me, I am feeling the love and the healing.

We had a lovely and peaceful birth at home. Labor was quick. And we got to spend the whole night with our sweet babe.
Galadriel Marie was born July 19th 2004 around 11 pm. She weighed in at 5
lb 4 oz and 17 inches long. She is beautiful. She has her daddy's feet,
dark brown curly hair, red ruby lips that look just like dd2's mouth. Her
cord and placenta were so tiny, just like she is. She was a breech
delivery, I came out just fine without any tears or abrasions. She had
apparent developmental problems. Something was wrong from the beginning.
We are not sure about internally, but there were some physical abnormalities
that lead us to believe that there were problems internally. She is now at
the funeral home and we decided against having her tested for anything. She
is at peace. Dh and I are are doing well. Waiting for my mom to bring the
girls back home. Things happen for a reason. I am so thankfull that we got
to hold our baby and spend the night with her. She truly is magical. I
miss her and it is hard to think about her, but I love her and she felt so
right to hold, but she was not meant for this world. She is in good hands
with her grandma.
Thank you all, peace and love.
Brandi

Brandi,

I don't post over here much but wanted to see if you had come out yet. We are all here for you, all of your friends. When you are ready, we will come. When you need us, just call. When you need to cry, we are here, when you need to rage, we are here... when you can't take it anymore, we are here and when you are ready to share more about here, we are here.

We will hold you and lift you up and carry you through your journey.

I love you, Brandi, and I am always here. When you are ready, call, I am here.
