When someone loses a baby/child/loved one, I always hear them talk about all of the big things that are going to be missed, like proms, weddings, babies of their own and other things like that. Of course it makes me so very sad that Aleena will never get to experience those things, it’s the little things that kill me the most. Aleena lived for a little over an hour, but she didn’t have enough lung tissue to breath, her heart was the only thing keeping her alive, so we never got to hear her cry. I lay in bed at night wondering what her little cry would have sounded like. She never opened her eyes. I sit and think about how she never got to see her Mommy and Daddy and we never got to look into her eyes and never got to see how beautiful they were! I never got to see her smile or be upset. We will never get to see her hold her head up, roll over, hold things on her own, crawl, talk, walk and so many other little things that I think a lot of people take for granted! I would give anything in the world to be up all night listening to my baby girl cry! I would do anything to give her one more hug and kiss. If you don’t get anything else out of my blog, I hope you at least hug your kids a little tighter and let them know how much you cherish them!
In Loving Memory Of
