|In memory of our precious angel, Eden.|
She would be turning 8 years old this year
|Felix -All the more special|
I can honestly say that a lot of things in my life changed that day. After the clouds lifted (which took months). I knew that if I could survive burying my baby, I could get through anything. Having Eden gave me a new appreciation for the children I already had and I felt much stronger and able to cope with life than ever before. I realised more than ever the frailty of life and how precious it really is. I still grieve for Eden; I cry for her and think of her every day, but looking back now I can see that losing Eden made having Felix even more special. When we were told that they suspected Felix had Down Syndrome it was a relief! I was 19 weeks and 3 days pregnant (exactly the same as the day I found out Eden had died). I had been a nervous wreck all morning because of the irony of the timing of my scan. To be told Felix had Down Syndrome was great news. He was alive, he was healthy and he moved so much it felt like he was trying to break out. What a blessing!
Hug those you love tightly today. Tell them you love them. Cry for those you've lost; but cherish those you still have. I'm so thankful for Eden. She taught me to love more deeply than I ever had before. As hard as it was to lose her, I am so glad I had her. I only got to hold her in my arms for a day, but she will live on in my heart forever.
