“To lose a child is to lose a piece of yourself .” -Dr. Burton Grebin.

Because of you sweet boy I am forever changed ♥ January 23rd I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Arlo Riley and in less then an hour later, he passed away. Two month since that day and it’s still hard to believe he’s actually gone. I still see his face everyday and still smell that sweet scented lotion we put on him after his bath.  I still see him in my dreams and think of him often. I went to visit him today and played him a few song that reminded me of him and sang them to him. I adjusted his bears and changed out the battery to his nightlight. I told him about meeting up with his parents and how I felt his presence around us. I feel him with me everywhere I go lately. When I’m at work and start getting frustrated I get this calming feeling go through me like he’s there, reminding me to breathe. I’m so blessed I got the chance to mother you while I could. You’re so perfect. Thanks for always watching over me. I know you’re in heaven looking down on me smiling and know I pray for you everyday. Mommy loves you boo.
