The following are quotes/poems that we have received that are meaningful to us.  We wanted to share them in the hope that you, too, might find them meaningful.


We received a card from a friend that spoke volumes about how I feel.  It simply stated:

“Sometimes one person can be missing and the whole world feels empty.” anonymous


One of the children in grade one at the school where I work made me a lovely card which said:

“Sorry you lost  your sun”.  Of course, he meant to spell the word “son”, but to see the word “sun” instead was even more meaningful and it wasn’t on purpose.


Here is a poem that was sent to me by a friend who’s baby boy was born stillborn.  She has been a huge help to me; giving me hope that the days will somehow get better and reminding over and over that he is with me always.


We are connected

My child and I, by

An invisible cord

Not seen by the eye.

It’s not like the cord

That connects us ’til birth

This cord can’t be seen

By any on Earth

This cord does it’s work

Right from the start.

It binds us together

Attached to my heart.

I know that it’s there

Though no one can see

The invisible cord

From my child to me.

The strength of this cord

Is hard to describe.

It can’t be destroyed

It can’t be denied

It’s stronger than any cord

Man could create

It withstands the test

Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,

Though you’re not here with me,

The cord is still there

But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart

I am bruised … I am sore,

But this cord is my lifeline

As never before.

I am thankful that God

Connects us this way

A mother and child

Death can’t take it away!
