Remembering Baby Roberts

Dear Baby Roberts,

Today is the day we light a candle to remember you and our friends who have lost a baby through miscarriage.  As sad as I feel that you can't be here, falling asleep in Mommy and Daddy's arms, we also want to know how blessed we feel to have had the opportunity at all.  You, my darling one, gave us hope.  You taught your mommy so much in such a short period of time!

You taught me to appreciate the moment.  They may be all we ever have. You defied odds, and we know we can continue to defy odds. You helped me realize that I need to work on myself.  I'm trying!  You helped me realize what I want to do when I grow up.  You gave me the desire to help others who have a hard time building their own families.  You, Baby Roberts, you did so much, and we are so proud of you.  I love you forever.

Your Mommy


  1. I can relate to this post. You will see this baby in heaven. I am confident he/she is there.

  2. I have 3 of my own up there with yours....what a beautiful letter.
