Remembering Jesse

Monday, March 11, 2013

It was 15 years ago today that I lost my dear unborn child. I named him/her Jesse not knowing what the sex of the baby was. I have never written a blog about any of my miscarriages to mark an anniversary afraid that I might offend someone. However, I decided that this year I would because this baby was important to me and I want to acknowledge that this baby has always been and will always be loved. I love you Jesse!

    Thank-you for stopping by my blog to encourage me. I really appreciate it.
    You must be a strong woman from what I've read so far. Keep up the good fight and attitude. Have a lovely week emoticon

    No I have not read it. I will have to check it out. It is interesting that I got this response now...it would have been Jesse's 15th birthday. Thanks for the post.

    This is awfully late, but thanks for sharing... Have you read "An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination" by Elizabeth McCracken? I can't imagine losing a baby, but I thought she did a really wonderful job of telling her story about her loss--and explaining to the rest of us what that really meant. You can read a condensed version here. http://www.oprah.com/omagazine/Eliz

    first I am sending my love to you and Jesse. I am happy you wrote so many women go through this in silence . I have three angel babies I miss every day . I tell my two children they have powerful allies in heaven to watch over them. I believe Jesse feels your love just as my children feel mine. years ago I went to a special mass the catholic church in my neighborhood had for women who had miscarriages or lost children after birth. I am glad I went the children were blessed we wrote their names down if we wanted and placed them in a jar we all held hands at the altar it was most beautiful I am glad I went. hugs Jesse will always be with you .

    Sending my love to you and that is good you are able to do so to tell an open personal thing. That takes courage. When losing someone so precious as your child. .

    Many years ago I loss a twin. The other one today is now a grown man with a family.

    My Mom loss three of her children but God spared her to 95 years and her hubby 96.

    So I feel compassion for you.

    I'm so sorry for the lost of your baby and that takes a lot of courage to share something like that and especially to be so personal. Thank you for sharing your story and I think for you to open your heart and let people to know about your pain and let any women out there to know that you are not alone in this dark times.

    I lost my first son a few days after birth. I don't know that one ever is the same after losing children. We just learn to go on. Very sorry for your loss.

    emoticon Hugs Linda, I'm thinking of you. I understand about keeping a date of the little one since I've also had several miscarriages.

    Even when you loss a child it still affects you and if people get offended then that is their problem.
