Happy Birthday, My Sweet Victoria

Today, I should be holding her. I should be counting her tiny fingers, and toes. I should be crying tears of joy, instead of these tears filled with so much pain. I should be kissing her small face, and asking God to keep her safe forever.. Instead, I just feel as though I've lost her all over again.

I like to think that I've holding it together pretty well lately, but its days like today that just seems to crush me. Thinking about holding my sweet new baby girl today, when all I have are her ashes feels like I'm waking up in a nightmare. Nobody should ever feel this pain. Ever.

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I knew my life would never be the same; I just hadn't imagined it this way.

Victoria, even though I may not hold you in my arms today, I will forever carry you in my heart. You are so loved, and so deeply missed. We cherish every part of you.

  1. Melissa, I am so very sorry for your loss. Words can't take your pain away but just know that you have so much love and support in your life. I hope that praying and talking with God will give you some comfort.
    I know that I didn't really start to heal until I decided that if I couldn't have my baby, the safest place she could be is in heaven.
    You are absolutely right though. She should be here, welcomed by your family and celebrated instead of mourned. I hate that you have to go through this. *big hug*
