Infant loss is a pain that no parent should ever have to endure. When we found out that our little boy would be born sleeping, I felt my walls crash in. To not hear your baby cry at delivery is heart-wrenching. I was not sure how we’d ever get past such a devastating blow to our family.
My husband and I took our time to grieve and support each other no matter what. With time we realized God had bigger plans and needed him more! That loss taught us so much about ourselves, and it taught us to cherish our only living son at that time and realize how much of a blessing it was to have him. It is possible to get through it. Every day may be a little easier, but you never have to forget your angel as that part of my heart will always long to hold him one more time.
We still celebrate his birthday every year and make frequent stops at the cemetery to just tell him about our life. It creates a sense of calmness. Time truly heals all wounds. Myself, husband and two boys will always remember baby Adam James.
