4 Months

Four months ago today, right this very minute, I was holding Owen and kissing him goodbye. I sang him a John Denver song that my parents used to play and I always loved.

Oh Montana give this child a home,
Give him the love of a good family and a woman of his own,
Give him a fire in his heart, give him a light in his eyes,
Give him the wild wind for a brother and the wild Montana skies

I wish I were the one to be giving him a home.

Oh Ashleigh he is beautiful. I thought I'd finished my crying today.
My dad used to love John Denver and he used to play the album with that song on it a lot.
How beautiful that you sang to Owen.
I'm so sorry Ashleigh, so sorry.
Hugs C x x x

Oh I'm so so sorry. Yesterday I just hit the two week mark, and althought I know it's so hard for you, I'm glad you got those brief moments with your precious Owen :-)

Oh Ashleigh. Owen is simply beautiful. I am so very sorry. So...very...sorry.
You and your sweet boy are in my thoughts. Hugs.

I am absolutely overcome with how beautiful he is! What a precious, wonderful little man. I am so sorry for your sadness, but thankful that you got to share a moment with such a gorgeous little boy.

Ashleigh, he is truly gorgeous.

I think it's beautiful that you sang to him. I'm sorry he isn't here--that all our babies aren't here. It's just so wrong.

Thinking of you...and remembering Owen. Such a sweet beautiful baby.
