You Should Be 1

5 Nov

Today should be your first birthday. We should be celebrating with you.

But you are not here.

You weren’t meant for this world, you were meant to be with the angels.

Instead you gave us a gift.

One year ago today, on what should have been your birth date, we found out that your little brother was conceived.

He made it. Our rainbow baby.

We never met you, never saw your face. I don’t know if you are a boy or a girl.

Yet in his smile, I remember you.


You gave us hope. You gave us Leo.

We’ll never forget.

Happy Birthday
