Happy Birthday Little One

Dear Baby,

Today is your due date...the day you should have been born.  Though I highly suspect you would have made your entrance into this world a few weeks ago, this is the only date I have to recognize you.  It's hard to believe 7 months have gone by since we said goodbye to you.  I still think of you every day, but it's not with the profound sadness that I carried back then.  I think about who you would look like, what your personality would be, but mostly I wonder if you were a boy or a girl. 

The fact that I can't name you is what really hurts my heart.  The fact that you're only known to your Daddy and I as "Baby" hurts my heart.  You should have a name.  You deserve a name.  But nameless you remain.  Maybe one day, Daddy and I will find something that fits you.

You will always be loved.  You will never be forgotten.

Love always,

Mommy

Here from LFCA. I'm so sorry about your loss and your unfulfilled due date. Like you, I had a miscarriage with baby #2 and am still in shock. I hope you can find peace in the months and years to come. They will always be our babies, if only just for a little while, right?

Visiting from LFCA. I, too, had to survive my baby's due date with out hearing him cry. There is no pain like this. Nothing really helps except time. Just keep breathing. Thinking of you.

So sorry that you lost your baby. This date must be so hard. I'll have an unfulfilled due date coming up in October and I'm dreading it...
Hugs to you...
