Our Babies, 2009


Samuel Eugene

January 10, 2009 ~ 23 weeks

The mention of my child's name
May bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring
Music to my ears.
If you are really my friend,
Let me hear the beautiful music of his name.
It soothes my broken heart
And sings to my soul.

All of our love, Mommy, Daddy & Big Sister Ella

Dearest Nolan, How much I wanted you. How much I loved you.
You were much to fragile and precious for this world.
I'm sorry that you will never get to run or jump. To get feel the sun on your face.
The sand in-between your toes. I'm sorry that I never got to hold you.
I don't think I would of been able to ever let go.
Please darling son forgive mommy and the choice she had to make.
I take comfort in knowing you will never know pain.
I wonder what color your eyes would of been.
And what color of hair would be on your head.
To hear you cry, to hear you giggle, to hold you as you sleep. To give you baths.
To read to you. To dress you up in funny clothes that would match your brother.
This pain is so deep my son. I hope your growing in heaven, since you didn't get to grow on earth.

You will forever be Mommys Babe Love 2

Bernard "Ben" William Freymuth

March 27, 2009 ~ 20 weeks

My emotions are still so raw!
We were so excited to finally be pregnant again.
My daughter was with us at the ultrasound
when we heard the terrifying news.
All I could do was cry.
When I finally asked if my child was a boy or girl
the nurse told us it was a boy (we'd so wanted a son!)
My husband and I burst into tears.
My sweet little 5yr old tried to console me and said,
"I know mommy, I wanted a little girl too" I love her innocence!
We made the heart breaking decision to end the pregnancy.
Now we are trying to pick up the pieces of our lives.
I pray for Ben everyday.
I look forward to the day we meet in heaven
and I can finally wrap my arms around my beautiful son.
I love him so very much.

Love Mommy & Daddy

Idiopathic Non-Immune Hydrops Fetalis

Our Angel Baby
God has called you home so soon
Back through Heaven's door
We do not know why
You were not ours to keep
We held you for a little while
Kissed your fingers and your nose
Our hearts are so broken
So many tears to weep
Play now with the angel babies
All those who have gone before
Knowing you are loved forever
And we will never ever forget
May the angels keep you safe
Until we meet you there
Since God has called you home
Back through Heaven's door



My little boy

April 10, 2009 ~ 18 weeks
Cystic Fibrosis

I saw you roaming free with a feather in your hair.
I knew then you were ready to continue walking among the stars.
I hope you come back again.
I offered my body today so we would not take a gamble on your life,
Had them take part of me so you could keep your lungs
and live a life with dreams and a future.
I love you so much; I did not want to see you suffer.
I feel you understand.

May you go in safety with the Lord and with Buddha this Easter.

I love you.

I feel so very desperate for his presence
I never looked into his eyes

I never kissed him gently with the smile of a proud mother
but only with tear burdened eyes
But you can God
Please, please tell him for me,
I know he is your angel now.

Love Mommy

To my precious baby
May you forever know
I love you with all my heart
And miss you ever so

To my precious baby
May you forever know
The deepest sadness in my life
Was having to let you go

To my precious baby
May you always remember
That I think of you everyday
Your memory I deeply treasure

To my precious baby
May you somehow realize
Even though your time with us was so short
You graciously touched so many of our lives

To my precious baby
I want you to understand
God needed you in Heaven
So He gently took your tiny hand

To my precious baby
I will see you again someday
For now I hold your memory close to my heart
It is there you will forever stay

with our heavenly father. Mommy and daddy love you so much that words alone
cannot describe our love for you. You are forever imprinted in our hearts and
you are never forgettable. Even though, we never got to see you, we feel like
we really knew you. Ava Grace, you are mommy and daddy's angel in heaven,
and I am so grateful you are at peace.
We are so sorry and sad because you are not with us,
just understand that we have to sacrifice our happiness for your peace.
We laid you down in peace to be with Jesus,
to prevent you from the suffering.
I hope you understand and comprehend our love for you.

Love forever,
Mommy and Daddy
