Tomorrow is for Aaron, who was to be born two months from October 15th for Issac who would have turned 11 in May, and for those babies in between whom we didn’t name. Tomorrow is for Edward Lucas R. who was born sleeping with catastrophic birth defects that ultrasound, and CVS didn’t discover. This is for Hannah who suffered a cord accident and left her mothers arms far sooner than she was ready for. This is for the twins whose arrival was to be a miracle, for Kathy’s first pregnancy that ended too soon, for the therapists first and now second pregancy that has recently been lost, and this is for Ernest who like Lucas and Hannah were born sleeping. Tomorrow is for all of babies who were born and lost far too soon. October 15th is for each of you.
For some you were with us only for a momemt, for others your room was waiting and we believed that nothing could harm us. For each of you October 15th this year and all years is when we remember all of you on the same day.
If you haven’t been affected by infertility or a personal loss you may not be aware that there are many who suffer in silence around you. The one who appears to have it all; the car, the house, the money to travel but who doesn’t have the baby in her arms is the one who suffers the most. Take a moment tomorrow and remember the littles of angels who fly in the heavens because they were too pure to walk on the Earth.
