Kathi first let me say how very sorry I am for your loss. I have been here since 2005, and have lost three. I lost two this year in less than 3 months, our babies , you are so right they are our children.
It is so hard in your heart you both know that you made the right decision but I also know that it doesn't ease the pain to know this.
Time is our friend in our healing, with time I think we dwell more on the happy times we spent together and less and less upon that last hour. Don't get me wrong you will still have "those days" that you just break down my husband and I both still do, and that is ok too ..the love is simply so strong that it is impossible not to miss that physical being of our babies but know too that they are with us always it is also impossible I believe for our babies to ever leave our hearts while we continue our journey on this side, they are with us it is that golden cord that connects us , they watch over us each and everyday.
Please know that you never walk this road alone we are all here for you.
Hugs and continued prayers of healing
Debbie Princess, Kaizer and Maddie's mom
