April 4, Due Date

By today, you would have been close to nine pounds. Your hair would have been darker and thicker and those important feeding reflexes even more ready for latching. And if you were anything like your stubborn sister, who came fourteen days late, this date would have come and gone without much hoopla.

April 4, 2011 has been marked in our minds and hearts for some time now, as we eagerly anticipated your official entrance in the flesh. We think of you constantly and today is no different. We miss you Margot June. We miss what was going to be.

Yes I understand that every life must end,
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go,
I’m a lucky man to count on both hands,
The ones I love.

Stay with me,
Let’s just breathe.

I am a member or your father in law's church. I felt a special calling to pray for your family today, and now I know why. I will continue to pray for you, Karim, Stella and little Margot. God Bless you all.

Don't know what to say. I am praying for you. I know God is able. I know He is able.

I wish there were words that would lessen your pain.

I too am from Heritage church in Iowa/IL. I have added you all to my daily prayers and am happy that you are all home now. As you grieve for Margot, know you are loved by many and prayed for daily. May God bless you and keep you close during this time. Gone but NEVER forgotten....
