Dear Emma Elizabeth Brown,

Mommy and daddy will always love and miss you. We appreciate every second we got to spend with you, no matter how short it was. No one will be able to explain what happened, but the time was yours. We have a beautiful daughter that had mommy's nose and daddy's brows. We have a daughter that will always grow in our hearts. We have a daughter that will always be special, nothing can take that from us. Hopefully, we touched you as much as you touched us. There is a tremendous pain that makes this hard and we will always struggle, but we know you were a fighter and gave it your all. Always know that we too gave it our all.

Today, is your scheduled due date. We will celebrate it together and never forget. While only 5 months, it has felt like a lifetime since we touched you last. We will spend a lifetime celebrating your life. Remember we will always be yours as we remember you will always be ours. Look after your future siblings, you will always be the beautiful big sis as we grow our family.

Thank you family and friends that have always supported us, especially through such times.

Tiny Emma, we love you ~ January 14, 2013 - January 16, 2013

Dear Kim,

Your first Mother's Day,
Not sure what to say.
A bittersweet present,
Without our daughter present.
She's been taken,
But never forsaken.
In both our hearts,
From start,
To finish.
We may always fish,
For the reason.
But never easing,
Is the answer.
It's a cancer,
That'll tear us.
So we must,
Strive on.
Stay strong.
For her.
For a cure,
That'll stop the pain.
That'll stop the strain.
Remember you and I,
Will again try and try.
We have love to share,
She knows we care,
And always will,
Even with a new Jill or Bill.

I love you both, Happy Mother's Day.
