    I would like to thank a member from another forum who posted this....
    I printed it off last year and have it in my memory box, and i cry everytime i read it.

    I wanted it to be here for you girls too, cos it makes me smile when i'm feeling so alone.



    What Makes A Mother

    I thought of you and closed my eyes
    And prayed to God today
    I asked "What makes a Mother?"
    And I know I heard Him say.
    "A Mother has a baby"
    This we know is true
    "But God can you be a Mother,
    When your baby's not with you?"
    "Yes, you can," He replied
    With confidence in His voice
    "I give many women babies,
    When they leave is not their choice.
    Some I send for a lifetime
    And others for the day.
    And some I send to feel your womb,
    But there's no need to stay."
    "I just don't understand this God
    I want my baby to be here."
    He took a deep breath and cleared His throat,
    And then I saw the tear.
    "I wish I could show you,
    What your child is doing today,
    If you could see your child's smile,
    With all the other children and say...
    "We go to Earth to learn our lessons,
    Of love and life and fear.
    My Mommy loved me oh so much,
    I got to come straight here.
    I feel so lucky to have a Mom,
    Who had so much love for me.
    I learned my lessons very quickly,
    My Mommy set me free.
    I miss my Mommy oh so much,
    But I visit her every day.
    When she goes to sleep,
    On her pillow's where I lay.
    I stroke here hair and kiss her cheek,
    And whisper in her ear.
    Mommy don't be sad today,
    I'm your baby and I'm here.
    "So you see my dear sweet ones,
    your children are okay.
    Your babies are born here in My home,
    And this is where they'll stay.
    They'll wait for you with Me,
    Until your lesson's through.
    And on the day that you come home
    they'll be at the gates for you.
    So now you see what makes a Mother,
    It's the feeling in your heart
    it's the love you had so much of
    right from the very start.
    Though some on earth may not realize,
    you are a Mother until their time is done.
    They'll be up here with Me one day
    and know that you are the best one!"

    Me too i don't think any body on the Other knows about it, as it was 3 years ago i didn't feelc comfortable writing in loss section as there was always more recent ones, poor things.

    I think i may have made referance a couple of times but that is it

    I didn't have a clue, feel bad saying that.
    I think thats partly why we wanted an angels garden, as opposed to being a loss/miscarriage bit.... so anyone can talk about their angels, even if it was my mum wanting to come on and talk about the angel that she lost not long after she had me.

    3 years goes by so quickly, but the pain seems to take a lifetime to go away! :(
