• Deep breath.

    What does one say? How does one say it?

    Just . . . one day (a long time from now) you’ll be there. Arms wide open.

    Until then, they are angels looking down. Smiling at all that you are.

  • WOW! This is beautifully written Lotus. Your babies knew how much you loved them~they could feel it in every sense of their beings & they know it now as they look down & protect you. Great post.

    BTW, did you get the email I sent you?

    I love that feeling when I’ve been lying in bed awhile, I’m all cosy and comfy, feeling like I’m surrounded by the softest black velvet, then I fall asleep fully and know nothing more until I wake up. I sometimes imagine it’s like that for unborn babies, but then I read articles where “they” say that light penetrates the womb, so I guess there’s sunlight as well.

    January 19, 2009
  • very true. I hope you can find some closure.

    Lay in the bath, close your eyes and put your ears underwater and relax while you listen to noises outside. This is what I imagine it is like inside a womb.

    A very peaceful place to be and a peaceful thing to do if you have time to do it.

  • As others have said, this is simply beautiful. I love your creative/poetic voice, and I’m grateful for your willingness to share it with us! I’m still trying to wrap my head around all of the stuff I’ve been reading here, from the great stories of raising Braden to the heart-wrenching emotional journey through two miscarriages… And as an unmarried woman who has yet to have kids, it’s been surprisingly painful for me just as a READER to take it all in (though it may be intensified since I’ve kinda read up on a whole year in just a few days), and I just can’t begin to imagine how I would personally react or cope with such a difficult thing. All this to say, I have no run-of-the-mill “you’ll make it through this” or “I know the feeling” sentiments. Just, thank you for so openly sharing, and I guess to put it bluntly — man, that sucks. But I get the feeling you are the kind of person who is well equipped and supported to overcome even the darkest of times, and it’s an encouragement to me as a prospective wife and mother to be able to journey with you during all of the ups and downs.

    And I swear I’m not creepy or anything, even though I totally AM e-stalking you. :-)

    I do believe on some level the spirit of those who have made the journey before you, watch out for us. (Hugs)Indigo

    Love to love you, Lotus.
    Lots of puppies up there, I’ll bet. Puppies, warmth, light, and everyone is well. And all they know is being well and warm and laughing at puppies.

    January 19, 2009
  • there is nothing else to add that hasn’t already been said, but I’m sure they are being well taken care of and are just waiting for you. But don’t feel like you need to rush to them, their eternity is but a day.
