In Loving Memory of Livvi Kitzman 7/6/99


Our little girl, we would have called her Livvi
We knew she was a girl right from the start
She was born at home, right in our bathroom
And her coming then nearly breaks my heart

She would've been our fourth child
We have two other daughters who are living
Gem, her sister, preceded her by 9 months
A whole full term of love that was worth giving

I know you're up in Heaven, waiting for me
But I can't help that I feel so alone
I'll always remember you, dear little Livvi
9 & 1/2 inches, 1/2 a pound & fully grown

But I know that I will be with you again someday , my sweet little angel but right now your being taken care of by the best :o)

Mommy and Daddy Miss you and love you even more...

In Loving Memory of Whitney Ryann Sept. 4,1998

This is a poem that I found in a SHARE newsletter. It has been almost a year since Whitney's death and by reading this poem I remember.

My Angel
by Donna Morrison

God placed inside of me a sweet angelic soul
to nurture with my body, for it a place to grow.

I watched with wonder and amazement at the miracle inside,
waiting for the moment where in my arms you now would hide.
Dreams and plans I wove for a future of you and I,
to begin within a second of my baby's newborn cry.
Dreams crash down around me, nothing seeming fair,
when instead of joyful crying, only silence filled the air.
My sanity now uncertain as reality sets in place,
a beautiful daughter, this I know, though i never saw a face.
The pain and longing crushes me as these days just pass on by,
searching for an answer to the obsesssive question,"why?"
I face the future with timid steps for now I walk alone,
God granted me an angel, but had to call her home.

I break through the madness, to try and forge a smile,
at that a rememberance of my very precious child.

Sleep in peace my angel, take good care while we're apart,
remember my sweet darling, you are always in my heart.

In Loving Memory of my precious unborn children 3/99 and 08/05/99

To my precious unborn children:


I thought of you and prayed today,
Asking God to show me the way.

I asked him for strength to help me see
The reason my babies aren't here with me.

And during my prayer I started to cry,
I did the unthinkable,I asked him WHY?

Right then I know that I did hear
"Stop crying my child for I am near.

I know your sorrows and pains are real
But I am here to help you heal.

I know you seek answers from mortal man,
I know their answers hurt you, they do not understand.

They tell you to get over it, to just move on,
Mourning won't bring them back, they are gone.

But your children are not gone you see,
They are up here waiting on you with me.

For you and your children did not part,
You will have them always to hold in your heart.

Because my child you have a heart like no other,
You have a pure heart, the heart of a mother.

Your heart is broken now, I do understand.
That is why I'm here to hold your hand.

I will lead and guide you with my light
Until my gates are within your sight.

Now heaven is closer for you to see,
For in your loss you came to Me."

by Tina Kerchenfaut

The pain of lossing you is extremely great but we take comfort in knowing that you are not alone. You are in heaven with your brother/sister-the twins we loss in march of this year. I just wanted you to know that we love you and you will never be far from our hearts.

An Angel Was Born On July 29,
So Still, Yet So Precious Was This Angel Of Mine.
No Reason Was Given For His Loud Silent Cry;
No Reasons Were Given To Our Questions Of "Why"?

But, Because Of This Angel, We Again Did Conceive.
Another Gift From Heaven We Again Would Receive.
Because Of This Angel, Whom We Always Will Mourn,
Two Babies, One Year Later, To Us Would Be Born.

Sadly Missed By Mommy, Daddy, Molly, Sean, Ryan
Forever Greatful are Colin And Taylor

No-one who matters to me seemes to understand my feelings since the loss of my longed for son. All I ask from them is in the words of this song...

Don't ask me to stop crying please just hold me as I do,

Soothe me with your silence and just cradle me to you.

Don't push me for my feeling or expect me to explain,

How can I in 5 minutes share this lifetimes bitter pain.

Everyone wants me to be how I was before all this happened.

It is comforting to know that there are many others out there feeling the same pain from a miscarriage. I just had my first miscarriage last week. I never knew the pain could be so deep. The only thing that has helped me deal with losing my sweet angel is the knowledge that God is still in control and that someday I will understand why this has happened.

In Loving Memory of Madison Adair Heaverin 7/5/99-7/6/99

My Heart Child

In my heart you existed before you were conceived.
Patiently I waited for you, wanting and loving you,
until the day I learned you were inside of me.
Already you had been there for a time,
and my heart was full and happy when you finally
let me know you were with me.

As you grew beneath my heart, my joy increased.
The beating of my heart provided life for you,
and the first time I heard your heart beat,
I realized how truly miraculous you were.
You were a precious gift given to me that
I would cherish within my heart always.

Then there came the news that I thought
would make my heart stop.
You were not able to keep your heart
within your body.
The beautiful sound of your heart beating
was perfect in every other way,
but it was not where you needed it the most.
It was as if you were trying to give us your self,
the innermost part of you, your very soul.

Patiently I awaited your birth, my heart aching for you.
When the day arrived, my heart was full at the chance
to meet you face to face, but continued to ache with
the knowledge you wouldn't be with us long.
But you stayed, so much longer than expected, your
heart beating so strongly right after your birth.

But then, all too soon, those heart beats slowed.
And after I told you it was okay, you had worked
so hard already, your precious heart stopped.
And my heart broke as you died in my arms,
and my soul feels as if it died with you.

And now, my heart is empty,
because part of me did die with you.
But you will remain in my heart forever.
You are My Heart Child.

In Loving Memory of Bailey William Heider May 11, 1999

I found out that I was going to have you at the beginning of the new year. I was so excited! We had been trying for you for months. You were to be the last.

On my third appointment on May 10, 1999 (day after Mother's day) They couldn't find your heart beat. They thought perhaps you were moving too much to get a good grasp on it. So I went in for a Ultra Sound. There you were just laying there. No heartbeat, no movement. My heart began to break and the Doctor couldn't say much of anything other than how sorry he was. It was the first appointment that your daddy was able to come to. We were so anxious to see what you were going to be.

On May 11, 1999 I was induced and gave birth to you. You were so perfectly formed. But there was a kink in the umbibical cord and cut off your maternal blood supply/oxygen.

I miss you terribly. I should be giving birth to you in 6 weeks and it is not going to happen. I never got to hold you. My heart still breaks with every thought of you.

I love you so much Bailey. You were wanted so much by mommy, daddy and your 2 sisters. I wish you were still inside of me... You will be forever in my heart.

As the night grows dark
and the clouds roll in
I look at the heavens and picture your grin
I can see you smiling as I watch you play
I thank God he gave you to me even though
you couldn't stay.

My heart is breaking, the tears they fall
but God needed you and sent you his call
You are amongst angels, in the heavens above
perhaps they adore you, but they will never be able
to replace your mother's love.

So, be strong my darling and stand proud and tall
for you were created out of Mommy and Daddy's undying love.

We miss you and love you..

Mommy, Daddy, Erica and Ashley

Dear Mommy:

Although I never felt your warm arms around me or felt your soft lips kiss my forehead. I want you to know I do feel the love you have for me in your heart. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you in person and get to know you better. Being inside your belly, I could tell you are a loving, caring and giving person. I'm proud to call you MOMMY. I can't explain why I had to leave you, but I can assure you that you did nothing wrong. I guess it's just one of those things that we'll never know. The pain and loss that you feel in your heart can be bad if you let it. Or, you can turn it into a stonger love, by..... Remembering that for a short time we had a very special relationship. I only wish you much happiness and love in your life ahead. Just remember that I'm always with you. I'll never forget you.

I have so many things I want to say and so many things I wanted to do with you. It's Mommy and Daddy who hurts right now because we miss you so very much. I know you're in the most perfect place but I just wanted you to be here with us. It's so hard to understand but god knows what he's doing and one day, I will too.

Baby I we all love you so very much. Mommy is going to miss so many things like brushing you're hair, playing games, hearing you laugh, cry and get mad. I wonder what you're voice sounds like,what color you're eyes are,you're favorite color, favorite outfit or how you're kisses feel on mommy's lips.

Mommy and Daddy will see you soon and we will never be apart again. Until then you and all these thoughts are right here in our hearts.

I Held You in A Dream

By Heather Peterson

I held you in a dream
oh that night it did seem
that you hadn't gone away
please, come back and stay?

I held you in a dream
you had wings and a tiny smile
you grabbed my finger and held it tight
please, come back for a little while?

I held you in a dream
my arms no longer ache
your warmth and love surround me
please, I don't want to wait

I held you in a dream
reality is seeping through
hold tight, my little one
please, I don't know what to do

I held you in a dream
maybe now I can find release
to this un-ending sorrow
please, show me peace

I held you in a dream
you told me with your eyes
that love will last forever
and no one really dies

Little One's Journey by Heather Peterson

"It's time to go."
He told his little one.
"But wait, I'm not done!"
A tiny voice replied.

"The voice I hear each day is filled with such love.
Doesn't she want me to stay?"
"In time, she will understand"
He said, reaching out his hand.

"How?" The little voice said questioning.
"Have you told her of what you have planned?"
"She knows I love her" He said with a gentle smile
"She realized she would only have you for just a little while."

"Then you did tell her of your plans?"
"Yes, in her heart she knows you are off to a better land."
"Will she miss me?"
The little voice said sadly.

"She will miss you very much."
He said as a tear zig-zagged down his face.
"Then I won't go, I'll stay right here."
The little one said boldly.
"I like it here, it's so warm and cozy."

"But I have plans for you"
He said, reaching out his hand.
"What kind of plans?"
The little one said, trying to understand.

"I'm going to take you to a wonderful land.
You will have others to play with,
young one's just like you.
Everywhere there is light, and the sky is
always blue."

"I don't want to leave her alone and sad."
The little one said reaching for his hand.
"You won't leave her alone." He said.
"For I am giving you wings, so you can
see her each night to tuck her into bed."

"I will get to sing her lull-a-bye's
and tell her I love her and she will
hear all I've said?"
The little one said hopefully.

He smiled. "She will know you are always there,
in her heart, she knows you
will always care."

The little one sat pondering,
wondering what to do.
Leaving this place, and going somewhere new?
Wings will bring me back, any time I choose.

He said I must leave her,
so I guess I'm on my way.
I will come back often
and tell her that I'm okay.

She will always feel me
deep within her heart,
I will leave my imprint upon her soul,
and she and I will never part.

The little one turned to him and said:
"I'm ready to go with you now,
your words have helped me so.
I know she will love me even though I have to go.

Just one more question before I leave.
This place we are going, does it have a name,
and is it as wonderful as it seems?"

"Yes" he said "It's called Heaven,
and it's a special place to go.
A place to rest, a place for love,
and also, a place to grow.

So come my child we're on a quest,
I'll take you home where you can rest,
please reach for me and take my hand,
and I'll lead you to my promise land."

We have two angels
to dream of and love
One walks with me
and one walks above.

When we heard you were coming,
we couldn't wait to meet
How sad we were to find
your tiny heart ceased to beat.

Though you weren't planned
we had such hopes for you
You were to join our family
before your sister turned two.

Although you were so tiny,
you filled us with such joy.
And though it was too early to tell,
we think you were a boy.

It comforts us to know
that although we soon won't meet
You're safely at the Father's throne
sitting at His feet.

April now will come and go
but know we won't forget-
You're our angel up above
the one we never met.

you were too good to stay.
See you when we get there!

To my Angel:
"Heaven's Dreams"

As I wept myself to sleep last night
I met you in my dreams.

You looked at me so peacefully,
and searched for words it seems.

You said "Mommy please don't cry,
today I earned my wings and learned to fly.

I know how much you miss me Mommy
but believe me when I say
maybe it was better,
We'll meet again someday."

And with this I awoke
and had lost you once again,
but the few precious moments I had
helped me in the end.

Now as I say goodbye
to this earthly life I know,
I realize you will be there waiting for me when I go.

I remember you like it happened yesterday,
growing in my womb.

You said goodbye too early,
but Heaven holds no guilt.
In memory of your life
I made you a tiny blue quilt.

So now I say goodbye to everyone I know.
This time my son
says it's time for me to go.

He has been so strong as I grew old,
playing in Heaven's fields of gold.

I lost him so long ago,
but it all still seems so new.
I must be bold, but maybe I'll take him his baby shoes.

Goodbye for now my loved ones.
But remember me in your dreams.
There is a place for you all under Heaven's waterfalls,
and in the beautiful blue streams.


We love you baby. I can't wait to finally meet you some day. You be a good boy Clayton and we will see you soon.

In Loving Memory of Renee Michelle Jordan June 11 - June 13, 1975

In loving memory of my beloved sister...

I've never seen you, not even a picture. Back then we were supposed to pretend that things like this didn't happen. All your sweet smelling baby things were put away before mom even came home from the hospital. It was thought that it was better never to speak your name... that way our mom and dad would "forget" you and move on.

Our mother longed to hold you while you were here, but there were too many tubes and wires... and besides that, the doctors didn't want her to "get too attached" to you, because you were so very sick. How does a mother not grow attached to a baby that is living inside of her for nine months?

When you died, a big part of mom and dad died too. They may have tried to pretend like you never existed, to move on with their lives, but I promise you that you were, and still are, very much loved and missed. Their hearts were broken, they just didn't know how to get through the pain.

Things have changed now, and we know that not talking about a baby who's died doesn't make the pain go away, and that you never, ever forget your own child. Mom and I talk about you sometimes... we wonder what you'd be like, what you'd be doing, whether you'd be a mommy yourself yet. I wonder if we'd be close, or whether we'd fight. How very different life would have been with a sister! All my life, there has been an aching, empty space in our family, left behind when you were taken away from us. Always, there is someone missing.

I lost my own baby last year, just 7 weeks after God created her within me. Before she died we named her Emily Renee, in remembrance of you, her auntie. Now that she is with you in heaven, it seems an even more appropriate name.

When I get to heaven, I know I will finally see my sister. Only then, when we are all together, will our family feel complete.

In Loving Memory of Two Special Babies

I Have received the news letter for approximately one year. This has been a blessing to me. I have had two miscarriages in the past two years. Just knowing that there are families who can relate makes me feel better. It's a daily task to attempt to move forward. Some days are better than others.

I decided to write today because September is a special month to me.


It was in the month of September when I moved away in search of living life on life's terms. By faith I found my place and the love of my life. We were married a couple years later in the month of September. For our first anniversary we had news that a little one was coming to share our world; however 13 weeks later our dream was shattered. The very next year again in September we had news only to last 7 weeks. We are left with an array of feelings. Today we say "gratitude" even though we do not understand. We have to believe that a power greater than the two of us has the answers.
