Paula's Story

My darling david. I knew you were always going to be a boy from the day we found out we were going to have you. You were so wanted and we were so excited that we were going to be a family.

you were due on 12th august 2008.

my waters broke on 25th july 2008 at 11pm i had felt you move at the usual time of 9pm i rang the hospital they told me to leave it an hour then go in and see them.

i got my bag for the hospital and we made our way there, they listened for heartbeat once we got there they could not find one lots of people were coming in and out it was so frightening, did a scan no heartbeat they then advised us as it is a friday night we will need to wait till the morning for a consultant to check and confirm.
it was the longest night ever it was about 11am sat morning the consultant confirmed the worse.
i had 2 blood transfusions before they gave me the tablet to start me off.

it was sunday 27/07/2008 @ 3.30 am. you weighed a healthy 6lbs you were perfect in everyway 10 little fingers 10 little toes you looked just like your dad with my chin you looked so healthy i was willing you to breath when i delivered you or just to hear you cry to prove that maybe they were wrong, it was not meant to be you were so peaceful, nothing or nobody can take away those precious moments we shared together, i hope and pray that you did not suffer in any way. I never thought i could love someone so much, you were too good for this world, how i long to cuddle you and kiss you, you were so long and so peaceful looking, every precious moment i had with you will remain with me for the rest of my life. me and your daddy will never ever be able to replace you in any way or form you will always be our little angel.

every tear i cry is sadness that we will never be able to play, cuddle and giggle but also for the happiness of the short time we spent together every second minute hour will stay with us for the rest of our lives.

it will never be goodbye as you will never be forgotten you will be forever in our hearts.
your tiny footprints have made an big imprint in our hearts.

lots of love mummy and daddy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

this poem was read at your funeral

A HEART OF GOLD STOPPED BEATING
TWO SHINING EYES AT REST
GOD BROKE OUR HEARTS TO PROVE
HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

GOD KNOWS YOU HAD TO LEAVE US
BUT YOU DID NOT GO ALONE
FOR PART OF US WENT WITH YOU
THE DAY HE TOOK YOU HOME

TO SOME YOU ARE FORGOTTEN
TO OTHERS JUST PART OF THE PAST
BUT TO US WHO LOVED AND LOST YOU
THE MEMORY WILL ALWAYS LAST

missing you loads love always mummy and daddy xxxxxxxxxxx

yesterday 24th oct 2008 the results from your postmortem came through it was just a tragic accident the cord was wrapped twice round your neck there was no way you could have survived.
