I Would Die for That by Kellie Coffey

Every time I watch this video, I am reduced
to big, heavy tears.

Tears of missing CalvinRainbow, and Gaelen,
Of wanting them here—alive.
Of wanting Calvin and Rainbow nestled on either side of me and Gaelen still growing safely in my belly.

Tears that question if Louie and I will ever have
living children a living child
or if I can even get pregnant again.

Tears that mourn
my diminishing fertility.

Tears of jealousy
and of self-resentment for feeling this envy.

  1. it’s inspiring to hear a singer share her innermost feelings through her song and speaks for many of us in this unwanted journey. *hugs*

  3. This video is such a tearjerker. I am sad all over again for you and Louie . I pray for you to have a take home baby all the time. ((HUGS))
