It is a year tomorrow that you came prematurely into your Mummy and Daddys lives. You were not supposed to be here but God had other plans for you. He wanted you to become an angel and be in heaven. We have asked ourselves and Him 'Why?' so many times but we never seem to get an answer.
You were beautiful Katelyn. You were so tiny and so perfect. You had Mummys mouth and chin and Daddy's big feet! You took a few short breaths and you died in Mummys arms.
We cried so much Katelyn. We had wanted you so much and had battled to get pregnant with you for so long. We never knew how much love we could feel for a tiny being growing inside my tummy. At every scan you 'performed' for us, waving, kicking, dancing and sometimes sleeping. But each time you had grown so much and we loved seeing your profile of your face and your fingers and toes. The last scan was where we were told you were sick. Your heart wasn't working properly but you were safe in my tummy. You were born a week later at 9.40 in the morning and you left us at 9.43am.
Not a day goes by that we don't think of you little one. You have changed our lives. We miss you so much. Tomorrow we should be having a party for you with balloons and cake and all your little friends. We try to imagine what you would look like now. Curly hair? Brown hair? Green or brown eyes? We will never know. I have seen so many lovely party dresses that you'd look so pretty in.......
Tomorrow Mummy and Daddy will put some beautiful flowers on your grave just like the ones you had at your funeral with white feathers and pink roses. The rest of the day we will spend together, just the two of us. On Sunday a prayer will be said for you during the service. Everyone is thinking about you sweetheart - Especially Opa, Oma, Nana, Grandad and Lucy, they all miss you too.
Wishing you a very HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY our beautiful little girl. We hope you are playing with all the other babies in heaven and having lots of fun.
All our love forever, missing you more than ever from
Mummy and Daddy xkx
