Late Term and Child Loss

First birthday/anniversay approaching-preg. mentioned

I lost my twins at 22 weeks due to unknown preterm labor last June 8th.  Their first birthday and anniversary is approaching.  It's a weird position I miss them terribly but I am also very excited to be pregnant with our rainbow baby. I have always wanted 3 children and there are days I can't get over the fact that if things were different this would be my 3rd here on earth.  My question for you does anyone know of a quote or poem for the 1st birthday or 1st anniversary in heaven?  What did you do to remember your child/children on this day?

  • My loss is pretty recent so I don't have any advice. But I wanted to say that I'm so sorry for the loss of your twins, and congratulations on your pregnancy! Wishing you peace and comfort on your angel babies' birthday.

  • I don't have a specific quote or poem.  For Logan's 1st birthday we kept it simple, intimate.  We were going to be out of town visiting my family 600+ miles away so the day before we left we took a small present (a solar dancing sunflower) and some birthday balloons to his grave.  While we were away we had decided we would carve a pumpkin (He was born on October 28th just a few hours after DH had carved a pumpkin for my hospital room next to my bedside...) just for Logan.  My mom bought a single cupcake for him too.  DH carved the pumpkin with "Logan" and a star and moon since we always read Goodnight Moon to him.  We lit it and sat it in the window. 

    It was nothing major.  Like I said, intimate.  But it meant the world to me.  This will be a tradition that we will carry on with our children too.  We'll always carve pumpkins for halloween but we'll carve a specific one and light it for him on his birthday every year.
