You will always be with me. The day I lost you was the day I turned 32. I am glad I get to share my birthday with you in mind every year! Until we meet again my love…

Although I was not very far along, you will always be my first baby. And as hard as my birthday will be every year, it reminds me of the day I lost you. I plan to celebrate us both every September 20th!

I am so fearful of another miscarriage, but I will push through and hopefully you’ll send what would have been a brother or sister for you.

(—Ashley, Poppy’s mommy)
