I was pregnant for the first time in 2000 with a baby girl. I was so excited I wanted her so much she was my little blessing. I knew she was a girl. when I was 22 weeks along she came early. I got to hold her. she was still born. her little body could not hold on. I miss her every day of my life. I got to hold her and name her she was so pretty. My dad said she looked like me. Her name is Emily Diane. This poem is they way I felt it hit home and I loved it. Thanks for sharing it.
