A message from Carly for the New Year

I took this photograph on Saturday morning. When I stumbled upon this little place in the botanical gardens I thought of my baby lost mama friends. I thought of us all as the pink flowers still full of love and beauty but trying desperately to catch the sunlight to survive whilst the looming spider hangs above us.

As much as we need the dark to heal, reaching for the sunlight is what we have to keep doing. If we keep hiding from the spider we will eventually sink into the damp ground and become stuck whilst all the other plants and flowers grow and bloom above us.

Although you may not feel like it does, this Earth still holds so much beauty for you.

Wishing everyone a HOPEFUL New Year

Much Love from

miscarried on September 24, 2006

She welcomes hello
with eyelashes that blink
in waves
and I am the shore,
the resting place for her smile.

She shrinks
with fragile breath
bolstered by a long silver cord,
as if connected to heaven.
God makes oxygen machines.

She says bye
but my stomach says
and I wonder when I return
if she'll be here.

Empty space
will wave to me.
A hurricane
with a magnitude of years.
And the richter scale of sobs
will be shooting off the charts.

Please mothers- before getting pregnant take folic acid and continue to take it each day throughout your childbearing years. It would have saved my daughters life.

He arrived in this world as fast as he left

On a mission to our hearts where he’ll always be kept

Battling the obstacles in his way

His mission accomplished

The ending of our little Super Hero’s day

He’ll forever be with us to cherish and love

For he’s shining down upon us from his place up above

Don’t shed a tear for he suffers no more

His battles are over we will forever adore

Miss you Angel...

I truly met an angel
What a beauty
With sunset hued wisps of hair and eyelashes
Just kissed with a hint of copper

Lashes laid against cheeks made for Kisses
With roses blooming there
A mouth that was fashioned
In the shape of a cupids bow

I can just imagine
A cherub just like her
With a smile that would
dimple a cheek or two

A fat little fist
That would try to catch a butterfly
That passes on the wind

But shhh....
Don’t wake this sleeping beauty.
In dreams she will remain
Forever in my heart

We had only just begun to love you when we discovered that we'd lost you. Our hearts broke that day, but I am truly grateful that I carried you, if only for a short time. I know you are up there playing with Grandmom and making her smile. I look forward to seeing you both again.

We love you, precious Baby Kam,

Our beautiful angel born sleeping,

Mummy tried saving you. I did my best sweet child of mine, but the doctors let you slip away, you flickered one last heartbeat to keep your mammy safe and in the end I pulled through. I lost my womb baby boy but the pain of losing you is so much worse. If I had one wish I wish I could have you in my arms one more time, you were such a beautiful boy born perfect at 4lbs 8oz's.

Mummy, Daddy, Jess, Jordan and Chelsea, we miss you very much and we love you lots you'll be forever in our hearts.

My baby girl, though you left us way too soon you changed our lives for eternity. We love you and miss you everyday... till we meet again..

The Cord- unknown

We are connected, my child and I
by an invisible cord, not seen by the eye
It's not like the cord that connects us till birth
this cord can't be seen by anyone on earth
This cord does it's work right from the start
it binds us together attached by my heart
I know that it's there, though no one can see
the invisible cord from my child to me
the strength of this cord is hard to describe
it can't be destroyed, it can't be denied
it's stronger than any cord man can create
it withstands the tests, can hold any weight
and though you are gone, though you are not here with me
the cord is still there, but no one can see
It pulls at my heart, I am bruised, I am sore
But this cord is my lifeline as never before
I am thankful that God connects us this way
A parent and child, death can't take this away

Baby Girl -

I wish there were words to tell you how much we miss you - but there aren't. I know you see and feel our love surrounding you every day, and we feel your love and spirit with us every day. I am sure you are dancing around Heaven just like your sister is here with us. Thank you for taking such good care of your sister - we know you are the reason she is with us today. You will forever be in our thoughts and in our hearts. We love you very much and miss you terribly.

For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Psalm 139:13-14


November 2007

It's taken me a long time to think of what to say to you. And for the months leading up until now the only words I could write down were, I am so sorry. But but recently I was driving in my car, listening to a song called Life in Technicolour, I feel as though you are sitting next to me, we have the windows down, and the wind in our hair, and we are driving... it doesn't matter where, just driving into the future together. And now that I look back on the year that has rolled past since we were together and I have found new words to replace those I previously had thought of.

Thank you.

Although I will always look back at that time as the hardest in my life, as I had to let you go, I now see it as a new beginning. I have realized that life is too short and you being in my life, although it was only momentary gave me the courage to make changes and go out by myself and appreciate my youth. I have had such an amazing year, and it is all because of you.

Thank-you for happening to
me and opening my eyes. Your are never far from my thoughts and I hope I am never far from yours, as I wouldn't be the same without you.

Loving you forever.... xoxoxo
