My Dearest Asher
So next week marks one month since I last held you in my arms and last kissed your sweet face. I miss you more and more everyday. I miss your kicks and punches letting me know you were still here fighting for that once chance at life. You are so beautiful, you have huge eyes like your big brother, curly hair tinted red and the cutest little nose perfect for kissing. I'm so blessed to be able to call you my son.
After finding out how sick you were and then making the decision to continue with my pregnancy I knew my life would never be the same. I would never know your favorite color, your eye color, the sound of your laugh, how tall you would grow up to be, your ambitions, your favorite music, your favorite toy or your favorite tv show. One thing no one ever told me or warned me about was how bad the pain would be of having to live life without you in it. No parent should ever have to outlive their child, all the unknowns are too hard to bare. The pain my heart feels is indescribable and no one should have to feel what this pain feels like. I hope you know that no day goes by when I don't think about you.
I'm really struggling with the holidays coming up, first we have Thanksgiving then Christmas then the New Year. I don't know how to begin to be happy without you here. You're supposed to be here enjoying all these things with us. I know I have to put on a happy face and continue on for your brother and I will but you'll be on my mind as well.
I know you're not in any pain and I'm sure your grandpa is taking great care of you, but I just really wish you were here with me. One more thing before I go, there will be a little boy who will be coming to join you soon. His name is Owen and his mom has become a good friend of mine and she is really struggling knowing her time with his is coming to an end. Owen has the same disorder you did therefore when he's called home please welcome him with open arms just like all the other babies that were taken to soon did for you. I know you guys will have fun together.
I Love you baby boy, until we meet again.
