Dear Lord
This month especially we bring before you all families of babies who have died too soon.  We know that you have them safe in your loving arms but we miss them.  Please give them a kiss from us. 
Amen.

This topic just breaks my heart. Both because I lost my first pregnancy and because I have four children I can not imagine life without.

I've heard a rumour that these poems are being brought together into a book, is it true? I really hope so because the world needs to see them.
