The Story of my Precious
This year marks the 40th
Anniversary of the day my Angel was born to
Heaven. Forty years ago, when my child was born
early, at 21 weeks ... I was not allowed to see
her. I was told she was 'perfect', but there was
no need for a burial, or for any services .I was
not even allowed to give her a name. I always
carried deep regrets about that decision. But, I
was young, and I accepted this as I respected my
Through the years, I have
grieved alone... holding in my feelings, and not
showing my true thoughts to anyone. Not a lot of
people even remembered I'd lost a baby... but I
never forgot! When her Heaven Date arrived each
year... I hid my tears. But I never forgot!
This year, I started talking
about my baby girl, and then had the 'good
fortune' to meet a lovely lady from England. I
know her as Angel
Billie from Heavens Angels. I
truly believe God arranged for our paths to
cross. She led me to a site
that acknowledges children born to Heaven, and if
they haven't been named... you can choose a name
and get a certificate. They also pray for this
child in weekly masses.
I have chosen the name
"Mary Jo" for my daughter.
Mary, honoring Our Blessed
Mother, my mother, my mother in law,(all Mary's)
and Jo, in honor of my father, whom I adored. An
added bonus... she now has the same initials as
my beloved granddaughter
My most sincere thanks to
Billie for this beautiful graphic!! And for
making my dream a reality!!
Please visit her site and
her 7 beautiful angels.
