This is for the moms who have lost – a pregnancy, a baby, a piece of their heart.
The ones who celebrated life at the appearance of two pink lines, and mourned it after the disappearance of a heartbeat.
The ones who grew another heart, and then watched it vanish into darkness.
The ones who felt their own heart double in size before it crumbled into pieces.
The ones who secretly carried a baby before they secretly said goodbye.
The ones who held a baby in their womb, but never in their arms.
The ones who walked into the hospital with a baby, but walked out with a teddy bear.
The ones who gave birth, but never heard their baby cry.
The ones who became mothers, but never got to hear their child say “mama.”
The ones who understand that life isn’t infinite, but love is.
The ones who celebrate their child’s birthday each year – without their child.
The ones who said goodbye to their baby on earth, and now wait in anticipation to say hello to them in heaven.
This is for the moms who have lost – a pregnancy, a baby, a piece of their heart; the moms who lost a baby, but have never let go.
You are never alone. You are infinitely loved. You are always a mother.
