“It feels like a dream. The moment they said there was no heart beat broke my heart. It was something I thought I was prepared for but when it happened I thought my world stopped. It’s not fair and it hurts. I wish you were still in my tummy. You look like your dad, you have his eyes and lips. You have my ears and feet and you have your sister’s curly hair. I wish I could see you smile and laugh, I wish I could hug you and kiss you and just hold you in my arms. I want your little fingers wrapped around my finger. Ellie Mae you are very loved and missed. You and your sister are my everything. I am so grateful to be your mommy. I love you so much you couldn’t even imagine.
