“Precious, tiny, sweet little one, you will always be so perfect, so pure and innocent just as you were meant to be. We dreamed of you and your life and all that it would grow to be. We waited and longed for you to join our little family though we never had our chance to play, laugh, softly rock or wiggle. I will always be your mommy and he will always be your daddy, you will always be our little boy the boy that we needed. You are now gone but yet still here, we still sense you everywhere. You are our sorrow and our joy but there will always be love in each and every tear. Just know little one that our love goes deep and strong and we will never forget the son that we had but never had, and yet will have forever.”
