Happy 16m birthday, Sophia

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Your daddy and I were discussing the special two weeks we had with you, after your brother was born. The way you swooshed in my belly. They way you curled up under our hands when we rested them on my abdomen. So wonderful. So full of hope... Of faith. Our little wisdom... Our princess... It's been 16 months since you were born. 16 months since those back breaking contractions that I smile to think back on. 16 months since your labor hit so hard that it took my breath away. I'd do it all again, every day, to have you in my arms again.

Happy Birthday, my sweet girl. I love you so much, Sophia.

Sweet Michele,
Holding you and your family in my heart today--I am always so touched with the love that you express for your children, and the way that you honor them in every moment.
I always forget that loss comes from having, and we never lose that part--

warmly,
Kate
