I carried you every second of your life, and I will love you for every second of mine.

I will hold you in my heart until I can hold you in Heaven.

Jesus, I wanted to sit my babies on my lap and tell them about You. As I can't do that now, will You sit them on Your knee and tell them about me?

I may have only held you in my arms for a moment, but I will hold you in my heart forever.

She was born silent into this world, but her little life spoke volumes.

When a baby is born, it's a mother's instinct to protect her baby. When a baby dies, it's a mother's instinct to protect their memory.

There is no footprint too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.

And to think, the first thing he saw when his little eyes opened was the face of Jesus.

Grief, I've learned, is really just love. It's all the love you want to give but cannot. Grief is just love with no place to go.

I carried you for only a moment, but you will be loved for a lifetime.

You were born silent. Perfect and beautiful. Still loved. Still missed. Still remembered. Everyday. Stillborn. Still Born.

Some only dream of angels, I held one in my arms.

Planted on earth to bloom in Heaven.

How quietly you tiptoed into our world, almost silently, only for a moment you stayed…but what an imprint your footprints have left upon our hearts.

Imagine a love so strong it made saying hello and goodbye in the same day worth all the pain.

No one will ever know the strength of my love for you. You’re the only one who knew my heart from the inside.

Bible Verses

For You created my inmost being; You knit me in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

-Psalm 139: 13-14

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, we also believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.

-Thessalonians 4;13

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

Therefore we do not lose heart [...] For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

-2 Corinthians 4:16-18

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

-Psalm 147:3

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
