When we found out we were expecting, we were over the moon. I could not wait to have my own baby, a child to share my unconditional love with.
We went to a regular doctor appointment to have my 18 week ultrasound. I was so excited. We were supposed to find out the gender.
Instead we were told that our precious baby did not have a heartbeat. I could feel my world stop spinning and my heart break.
Everything I had hoped for and anticipated with my own precious child felt as though it was ripped away from me. When he was born, it was determined that he was a boy. He was all so perfect and, even through the grief and pain, I had never felt such a strong love for anything in my life. I miss him everyday and I wish he was here in my arms.
My hospital provided me with a cradle, blanket, and crocheted heart. It was the best thing I could have received. I held my son in the cradle and I feel as though that cradle is what makes me feel closest to my son.
When I hold the cradle close to me, I feel as though I am holding my precious boy. I am so thankful for Bridget’s Cradles for giving me such strong and comforting items to remember my loved son.
