Our Little One

Another little soul has tiptoed in and out of our lives, and I wanted to take a moment to honor her.

We carried her, physically in my body and the hope of her life in our hearts, for almost thirteen weeks. It seems her little heart stopped beating at almost ten weeks. The testing we requested shows a chromosomally normal girl. We will never be able to answer the question of why she couldn't stay with us.

The light of her life went out on Thursday, April 26, 2007. She was Delilah. We will always love her and wonder what else she might have been.

I am so sorry. The tests showing normal is a cruel thing, in that it doesn't give answers. I am sorry you have to go through this. I will think of her today and hold you in the light.

Thank you so much for your good words, ladies - I know you can relate, although I wish you didn't have to know first-hand what this is like.
