Dear Vickijake,
I am so sorry that you lost your daughter, especially at such a young age. I have no story to tell about losing a child - my husband died- but grief is grief and I know how much it tears you apart. I just wanted to say that I am putting virtual arms around you both and hoping that you can have a future you will eventually enjoy.
Perhaps you could make a scrapbook about your baby. There must be photos of you pregnant and when she was born. You could write how you felt, both before and after her birth. If this isn’t for you, don’t worry. You will never forget her.
I wish you peace and eventual happiness.
Hugs,
AnnR xx
