The unfinished mother

George should have been born sometime this week pink and screaming and taken home alive.

I'll never get to know the scent of his warm head.

My sweet sweet spring baby.


  1. I'm so sorry.... May this week treats you kindly, with sweet reminders of George.

    I hope your fever dissipates too.

    Keeping you in my thoughts.

  2. Thinking of you.
    Hugs and love.

  3. Thinking of you, Ray, and George today, Barbara, with so much love.

  4. Thinking of you and sending you hugs, peace, and lots of love.

  5. This is such a hard time to get through. You might find yourself spending a lot of time thinking about what would have been for a while now, and that is totally alright. I hope you find ways to smile when remembering George, and that this week passes without too much pain.

  6. Thinking of you, Ray and sweet George, today and every day. Hugs and much love.

  7. I'll be thinking of you today.

  8. Barbara,

    I just came across your blog through Carly's.
    Please know that there are so many people loving you and keeping you and your family in our thoughts.
    The picture's of George are beautiful and precious.

  9. I understand. I think many of us will be facing this soon. It's heartbreaking. So, so heartbreaking. It's too much of a reminder of the way things should have been.

    I'm just so sorry. And I'll be thinking of you and Ray an "extra lot" over the next few days. I don't know what else to say.

  10. We love you so much, Barbara. ((Hugs)).

  11. Thinking about you extra this week. Dwell on the nice things about George and try not to dwell on the horror of it all. My heart aches for you.

  12. I'm so sorry about your loss.

  13. These are the days that are hardest to get through. Sending hugs your way.

  14. I'm so sorry that George died. I wish that you and your husband should have been planning the hospital visit and the chaotic happy aftermath of his live birth this week. I remember our first due date milestone with such sorrow, and wish you did not have to experience this pain. I wish things were different - if only! I truly hope George is in a better place. The picture of him is beautiful, so peaceful. His nose is just adorable.

    Its a little bit of a cliche but I believe it. You're the mother of a little angel. It feels unfinished in life, but I'm hoping that one day, we get to hold all our little ones in our arms.

    Thinking of you both and George on his due date.
