The Loss of My Daughter

On April 17, 2010 my water broke. I was 17 weeks pregnant. I carried my daughter, Emelia Faye for 12 weeks in bed rest until my placenta abrupted. She was 1 pound 10 ounces. She didn’t have lung development and lived exactly 1 week. I had to take her off of life support. And I held her as she passed back into the Hands of GOD. I haven’t been able to get over that tragedy. You never really truly move on. She was a beautiful little girl and now she is my beautiful little angel.
