Our Babies, 2005



5th January, 2005
Trisomy 13

I am sorry that you had to endure so much pain. You will always be Mummy and Daddy's special boy.
Mason, I love you my baby boy. I am sorry for the pain mummy caused you and I am sorry I never said goodbye.
I guess there was never going to be a goodbye; it is just until I see you again.
I miss you baby and my heart aches for you every second of every day.
The day I lost you is the day a piece of my heart was taken too.
Felicity often asks of you. You are a special boy and know that mummy and daddy
will be here for the next time you want to join us.

Mummy, Daddy and big sister Felicity


Our Little Star

Fragile X Syndrome

To Our Son,
Not a day goes by that we don't think about you.
Our decision was difficult, but was made out of love for you and our family.
Your sister has Fragile X , so we had you tested for this too.
It came back much worse than we imagined. We wish we could have seen you in person, but maybe someday.
We hope you know that we love you and think of you especially when we sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."

Missing You,
Mommy, Daddy Kirsten end extended families

Multiple Heart Defects, Trisomy 21

Dearest Lily,
The memory of holding you in our arms will last our whole lives.
Although our hearts are broken, we take comfort in knowing that your pain is over,
and your new life with the Lord has begun. How special you are to be called back to God so soon.
Mom is blessed to have felt you inside her, even for such a short time.
Our dreams for you, on earth, will not be fulfilled and that brings sadness to our lives.
However, we know you are with your Papa Jones, Aunt Jan and Great Grandpa Manger
along with our other departed loved ones. That makes us smile.
A fresh Lily stands alone in a vase on our kitchen counter.
Its beauty is a reminder of your own, one we will see again when we are finally called home.

Love always,
Mom, Dad and your big brother Matthew

Letting you go was the hardest thing we had to do. We are suffering so that you didn't have to.

You had black hair like your Daddy and long fingers like your Mommy.
We love you and miss you very much. We wish you were here with us, but God had other plans for you.
You will always be our first child and I know that Daddy and I will see you in heaven someday.

My dear sweet Hannah, you were wanted and loved so very much by your Mommy and Daddy and grandparents.
After an agonizing 12 weeks of meeting with doctors and getting the best possible medical advice,
we made the hardest decision of our lives. We made the choice to allow you to go with grace and dignity.
You were born into the arms of God at 12:35 a.m. on June 22, 2005. We will hold you in our hearts forever.
You will always be our firstborn daughter. Little did we know that part of your purpose was to be in heaven
to meet Grandpa just six months later, when he passed away on Christmas Day, 2005.
We will love you forever!

Mommy, Daddy, Nana, Grandpa, Grandma, Papa and your new little sister who will arrive in August 2006.

They brought you for us to hold
You were too small to be born today
Your hands, feet and ears so perfect in every way.
As your father and mother, we shared dreams as one
Would you be a daughter or a son?
As we held you in our arms, our little son
We realized our dreams are no longer real ones.
You will never smell the flowers, hear the rain, chase a butterfly, or have a lot of fun.
You will never feel the sun.
Good-bye, our little son.

We love you Caden, and not a day goes by that we don't think of you.
We know that our decision was made out of love,
but we still miss and long for you everyday and we will for the rest of our lives.

We love you our little angel,
Mommy and Daddy

We will join you in heaven my little man, but until then just always remember we love you more than anything.

Love Always

Mommy, Daddy and Joey love you so much.
From the moment I knew you were inside of me, I was in love.
Joey knows all about you and even says your name now.
I have your hand on me forever and Daddy soon will too.
I found this poem and I want to send it to you:
We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow too
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know
Remembering you is easy
We do it everyday
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.

We love you so much angel,
Mommy, Daddy and big brother Joey

My sweet baby Angel, I am so lost without you. I miss you so much.
Letting you go was the hardest thing I have ever done. I held you in my arms.
You were so small. Your little nose, hands and feet were so perfect in every way.
I will never forget you. You will always be in my heart.

Potters Syndrome


Mommy, Nana and big sister Aurora miss you everyday, but we know that you are in a better place.
We know that you were made a guardian angel to look out for your big sister.
You were taken away because, someday, she will need you to be there for her
and to help her through some hard time down the road. Aurora means 'dawn' and Jacob means 'guardian of light'.
Mommy can smile at that now, even though I didn't know that when I named you. That's why it was meant to be.

I love you little man. With all my heart.

Love forever,
Mommy, Nana, Aurora, and all the family

shows your place in this world. We love you Baby Harper.

Dear Love,
I really don't know what I should write you. It seems I have so much to say to you.
It seems that you never left my thoughts. I wanted so much for you
the best life ever possible for a child to have. I hope you are in a better place now,
and we made the right decision to let you go. I will, until I die, wonder this decision probably.
One day it seems I did best I could for a child I love will all my heart. Other days,
it just seems hard to understand all that happened and hence I don't know right from wrong anymore.
I could only tell you one thing for sure, we love you so much, and we always have and always will.
All we did is because we love you so much. Regardless of whomever we will have in our lives in the future,
you will always be missed and remembered.

Love you always,
Mommy & Daddy

We wanted to have you so badly, and your brother Davin was so excited.
Now we can only hope you know how much we love you and your brother Arkin,
who should have found you in heaven by now. Our only thought is that God needed more baby angels,
and Arkin needed a best buddy. We love you so much, and always will.

Lily Bernadette, how we miss you! I believe that you are running around in heaven with bright red hair
just like your big brother Ian does on Earth. I pray that the medical team was right and that you had no pain.
Though you passed to heaven during labor, Mommy and Daddy loved kissing and holding you throughout the day
and tucking you in for the night before we said our final goodbyes the next morning.
We look at your pictures a lot and Mommy aches to have you in her arms.
We know that someday in heaven we will be together!

Daddy, Mommy and big brother Ian

Daddy and I made the hardest decision letting your soul go back to Jesus. We have loved you since Daddy
and I found each other and talked about our children we would have.
We will love you for eternity and can’t wait to see you in heaven where we will embrace.

Our Precious first daughter,
You were such a blessing! God knows it was so hard for us.
Mommy and Dada wanted so much for you to be a happy and healthy
baby but it was just not possible in any way.
Baby Girl, you were so sick and weak, and we did what we felt we had to.
Although we know your spirit and soul were strong, you deserved so much more!
Not a day will ever go by that we don’t miss our little girl,
so please understand it was out of Pure Love and Honor.
(That is Your Name in Latin) Your many grandparents and wise relatives will take care of you sweetheart.
You were such a good girl Fly, our little butterfly and play with the other AHC babies.
Take care of each other. We love and miss you soooo much!

Always in our hearts,

The day I Lost you will always be in my heart.
I couldn't believe the doctors when they told me that you weren't going to make it.
You are in a better place, free from the pain that you you felt.
You will always been with Mommy and Daddy and we will not forget you.
God has another angel beside him. Until we meet again. We love you so much,
I wish it didn't have to be this way. Holding you in our arms was the best thing that has happened to me.
But when it was time to go I couldn't let myself give you back, that was the worst. You were our first child.
The dreams and hopes we had for you are no longer. You are a baby Angel.

Love and missing you,

Dear Keegan, your mommy and daddy love you so much.
That's why we wanted you to come back to us in a body that would let you do all the
special things you would have wanted to do. From building sandcastles with your big brother
to singing nursery rhymes with your mommy, we wanted it all for you.
In the meantime, thank you for being your brother's angel.
You are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you.
You will always be our son, we will always love you and we will forever celebrate your short life.

Mommy, Daddy and Tavis

Dear Keegan, this is your Grandma.
I love you so much even though I never held you and rocked you to sleep.
I know my mother, your great grandmother, is rocking you at this very moment
and singing the lullabyes that she used to sing to me. Then she will hug you close and kiss you.
Within her presence and love is my love and your mommy and daddy's love.
My dad will teach you how to beat on his lunch pail as a drum, and he will love teaching you how to play golf.
I love you Keegan Crockett Turner with all my heart. You live in my heart forever and ever.

The choice we made will never feel right — no matter how right it was.
Is a breath of salty air really worse then never breathing at all?
If only we could look forward to your first steps, words, boyfriend, your prom pictures on our wall.
Instead we have a sonogram of a sick child and a few index cards of tiny foot prints.
If there is a heaven — you are there and you are complete. Wait for us there —
we will show you all the love we have in our hearts for you then.

Our girl always — you will be loved, missed and cherished everyday.
Mommy, Daddy and your brother Gavin

anything other than the perfect little girl you are.

Love you forever, baby girl.

Today, I sent you to the Heavens where you can spread your wings and fly among the clouds.
You will never know adversity or negativity. Your legs will always walk, run, or jump.
You will know no boundaries. I have set you free.
This is the most agonizing, heartbreaking decision we have ever had to make.
We love you. I have loved you since before you became a presence in our lives.
You have already touched us deeply. Your brother and sister are very sad but comforted
by knowing that you'll be watching over us day after day with the ones we have already lost in heaven.
I will look to you often. I am very sorry that your life ended before it had a chance to start,
but I am certain that you are in a better place. It is because of that, we feel peace.
I love you and I'll miss you. I wish I had the opportunity to see and kiss your sweet, angel face.
I will hold you in my heart forever.

Your Mommy, Daddy, brother Morgan & sister Madelyn

When you left you took a piece of my heart with you. Please know how much we love you and we’ll never forget!
I love you Anna Belle!
