‘I didn’t come home with a baby, but I still gave birth.’

“I write this for the mom about to go through this. I write this for her, so she might be able to mentally prepare for the oddity of wanting congratulations in such a sad time. I write this to prepare her for the desire to celebrate her child’s life, while she’s mourning that very life.”

‘The day you were born Daddy was wearing this shirt.’

“When Josh got home from work – he saw Amelia in the dress. I asked him if he remembered why that shirt was so special.  His whole face change in the realization of the significance of the shirt. He was so thrilled and picked Amelia up for a huge hug and told her why the shirt was so special.”
