Missing My Baby 118 days later

It is 11PM.  I was expecting that by now, it would be getting better.  It is still so heavy.  Sometimes I feel torn between this world and the next; wanting to be a mother, wife, nurse, daughter, and member of the community here. Part of me wants to meet my sweetie in heaven. In our Thursday group, one of the parents shared a poem that is so fitting for our family too.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

On this very day 1 year ago, with my cousin

Before bathtime hurt very much, she loved having her hair washed

March 2010, 3 months old
 Most of the time I function, enjoy Chloe, work, live, laugh even.  We are managing fine, and learning a new way of living and loving.  I know she is OK now in paradise, not in pain, and I am grateful for all of that...I just miss my baby girl.


  1. Praying for you. I feel lost for words this very moment but the hurt your missing your baby in your words just breaks my heart. My god continue to lift you up.

  2. This post breaks my heart. We think of you often and are so excited to see you all next. I can only imagine the heartache that you are going through. I am so sorry that you are suffering and I pray that God will give you comfort. Elle is a precious and wonderful gift to everyone who met her. We love you. Love, Jennifer

  3. Becky, I am so sad and my heart so heavy for you.

    I do check your blog daily, as I do my EB blog reads every day. I think of you and your family every day. Honestly. Please know people are still here for you.

  4. Dear Becky: My heart hurts right along with you. Your family is always in my prayers. You just have to keep remembering, Elle is pain free and smiling that wonderful smile of hers in paradise. All the EB angels are playing and having a wonderful time, no more boo boos.
    Keep the Faith and hang in there. Love and Peace Love Leah's Nana (still missing my precious grandaughter)
