Angel babies are never forgotten. 

They stay in your heart forever. 

Forever Heart Publishing is proud to announce the publication of a very special memory book dedicated to those babies whose lives have ended too soon.  I Will Hold You In My Heart Forever: A baby book for little angels, written by Michelle Murray, provides families who have experienced the loss of a baby whether through miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death, the opportunity to create a baby book tailored specifically to their own situation.

This book is designed to fit a variety of situations by having removable pages. It will allow you to take out sections that do not apply to your little angel. The book is made with a custom designed binder, with over 100 pages. Some of the pages include a space for detailing the months that you were pregnant.  Other sections include a family tree, hospital stays, a page for funeral details, final resting place, journal pages to write down your feelings and folders to store sympathy cards and other precious keepsakes.  This book will allow you to work through your grief and you will be able to treasure it and look back on it for years to come.

Proceeds of the book will help organizations such as Bereaved Families of Ontario, a support group that helps families through the grief of losing a child.  Visit their website at www.Foreverheart.ca.

Our precious baby girl, we miss you so very much and love you with all our hearts.

Until we see you again,

Daddy, Mommy, Jeffery and Mary Catherine

Our sweet Anna Clare, our precious Anna Clare is an angel now with wings as white as snow. She sits with God and smiles all day while watching all the angles play. God showed me in a dream so clear how happy she is now, for Anna is with the Lord our God bouncing on his knee. He’s holding her with hands so large. My Lord will never let her fall. With kicking legs and jumping jacks my baby will always be kept from harm. Anna is looking down on us with her dimples all aglow, her skin so soft and cuddly and smelling clean as snow. With Jesus’ arms around me and walking by my side, my Anna Clare is safe and happy, singing angel songs with pride. Please kiss her, Lord, for me each day and let her feel my love and tell her that with help from you we will hold her again up above. I wish that I could kiss you and hold you close once more but since I can’t I know that Jesus will take my place and love you even more. As a precious gift you were given to us although your time was brief. The joy you placed in all our hearts for a lifetime will be our treat. One day when time has run its course and with God’s love to share, our broken hearts will finally mend with memories of our sweet Anna Clare.

 

I love you,

Mommy 1-27-99

Sydnei Rose Nelson was born June 12, 2007 in Mesquite, TX. Originally from Jackson, MS we ventured off to start a better life together. Sydnei was a very demanding baby; she did not want her way, she GOT her way. Talkative, high maintenance, and very advanced for her age. Sydnei was very attached to me, her mother, and when I left the room everyone knew and when I walked in a room her eyes would light up! When I would not hold her she would scream until I picked her up, and when I laid her down she would rub her feet against me until she fell sound asleep. Dancing was her forte. Elmo made her dance and giggle until she could not control herself. She had a dimple so deep that when she smiled it looked like it hurt. Our thing was Super Sydnei: I would hold her in the air and say, “Super Sydneiiiiiiii, saving the worle one baby at a time,” and she would stretch out her arms like she was flying like Superman. That was the icing on the cake for me. She was also my alarm clock, every morning at 6 o’clock sharp she would grab my face and pull herself close to me, and suck on my chin or my nose. I like to believe she was waking me up for work, but she was just hungry :)…. She loved for me to dress her up, and had the most beautiful feet in the world, baby toes are the cutest things. She had terrible gas so I let her lay on my chest from time to time while I burped her. September 4, 2007 I laid her on my chest to be burped and for a short nap, maybe about an hour, and …………..she never woke up. SIDS. 


I love you Sydnei Rose “Moo Moo” Nelson

Our son, Hunter, was our first child. He was born in May of 2003 after years of edometriosis treatments. He passed away at the babysitter’s house in December when he was almost 7 months old. We had returned from New Mexico the day before where we had visited family and where he got to meet my grandfather. They both passed within 24 hours of each other. Although his life was short, we were able to fill it with innumerable experiences. He travelled to six states, including Disney World, the beach, the mountains with snow, and the desert. As we look back, we would give anything to have him with us again, but we can say that we know that although his life was short, it was a happy life full of experiences. In May 2005, we gave birth to our second child, Olivia, and faced all the fears again. She is now 14 months old and doing well. Our challenge as she grows up is to make sure she knows about Hunter.

On October 18, 2005 at 4:46 and 4:47 a.m. the Nalls and Anderson families were blessed with the addition of Dakota and Dillon.

Weighing 2.4 pounds and born several months premature, Dakota was blessed with a beautiful smile and a ray of life. However, on September 18, 2006 approximately 1 month before her first birthday, God decided that it was time for Dakota to dwell in his presence, to behold and gaze upon his beauty, to inquire in his temple. It was on this day we were left to cherish her beauty, smile, and laugh.

Although Dakota is gone, she is not forgotten.  She will forever be in our hearts.

Our sweet little man went home to be with God and his great-grandfather in my arms. You were the great gift ever given to your father and me and will be greatly missed. You are in a place where you won’t hurt or be sick or scared. Eventually your father, sister, and I will join you up there. Until then, we know you are our precious guardian angel and we love you greatly. Sleep well, Little Man. Hugs and Kisses Forever.

Baby,

Mommy and Daddy love you so much. We miss you and think about you everyday. We want to help other people in your memory because we know that is what God and you want us to do. The Lord said “I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me”… “I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me” (Matthew 25:35-36, 40). We thank God that he blessed you with the gift of eternal life in heaven. “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14). We were so proud of how strong you were the day went home to God. You fought long enough for everyone to say goodbye to you. We will carry you with us for the rest of our days and never ever forget you. We believe that the stars shine brighter and that heaven is that much better now that you are there and we can’t wait to get there to be with you again.

 

Loving you always,

Mommy and Daddy

Our baby girl, Alissa was born on September 22, 2002, which was one of the happiest days of my life. I had waited a long time to have her, and felt truly blessed by God when she arrived. She was such a happy baby, so alert, and so observant of everything. Looking back, I feel like she knew she only had a short time here, and wanted to make the most out of it! She passed away on November, 25, 2002, three days before Thanksgiving. She will always be my Angel Baby, and will always be a part of our family. I will always remember the 2 months I had with her as some of the most precious days of my life!

Nadalyn’s Poem

I waited nine long months for you to get here and as I watched you be born I cried so many tears. It was the most touching experience that I had ever been through; you were God’s little gift to us and a perfect little Angel too. Your Mama and Daddy held you so tight and no matter where you went, you never got out of their sight.  You were their pride, their joy, and everything in between, not to mention one of the prettiest little girls we had ever seen. You brought so many smiles into our lives and all we want is you by our sides. The three short months that we had with you we will never forget and we just thank God for the time with you spent. We still want you here with us; we miss you so much. Forever in our hearts you will stay, we know in Heaven is where you stay. Nadalyn, we are ready to be on our way, because we can’t wait to see your beautiful face on that special day.

-Your Family

Poem from the parents…

CUDDLED IN HEAVEN

By: Charlotte Collins

We had so little time to share,
Too soon, I had to leave.
I know how much you love me.
I know how much you grieve.
I know how sharp your pain is,
I feel the aching in your hearts,
My life so quickly ended
Before it barely had a start.
I remember how you held me,
And kissed my face and hands,
You cuddled me so gently;
But, God had other plans.
I was your perfect angel,
From God you knew I came,
Suddenly He called me home again,
And now God holds my hand.
I know you’ll always miss me,
I understand your pain is hard to bear,
Just remember that I’m in Heaven
And we’ll see each other there.
So smile when you think of me
And wipe away all of your tears
I’m cuddled now in Heaven
By our family members here.
I’m waiting in Heaven,
And on the day we meet again.
I’ll be the first to smile and greet you,
When God calls you home to him.

MY LITTLE ANGEL

I felt your presence there inside me, nestled soft and warm;
Sweet scent of baby’s breath, precious words left unadorned.
I saw your tiny heart beat, then I knew that you were fine;
A perfect baby I created, one that would be mine.
Then that tragic day it came, there was nothing I could do,
Only wait and hope for the precious life of you.
Yes, in the beginning I was afraid only I would love you
unconditionally and never run away.
I loved you more and I cried for you that day.
When the doctor said that you were gone but I wanted you to stay.
I would have held you so close and keep you safe and warm.
Only now you are an angel over me, beautiful and bare.
My heart would hurt if you were to cry to me and I not be there.
Still we are together in heart and memory.
Rest gentle now “my sweet child” there is no pain, for you are never alone,
I know you are with the guiding angels in your peaceful home.
I will come with you someday, only now is not my time.
Then we will be together again and again you will be mine.

To Mommy’s ‘Booger Butt’: I miss you so dearly; I remember like it was yesterday when I was eating cookie dough like crazy because that was all we wanted were out sweets!! Daddy claims I forced you into this world because I was so ready for you to be here; born three weeks early and almost 8 lbs, you were my bundle of joy. From the moment you entered this world you hardly cried, with serious and somber looks, but no tears. You never hesitated to grunt even when lifting a finger or blinking an eye; a noise I will never forget. Two weeks old and living life to the fullest already— watching bull riding at the Neshoba County Fair with Bubba. A hungry piggy you always were, three hours came and went so fast. You laid in the arms of so many during the short time you were here, during the time I could only feel jealous because all I wanted was to hold you all the time. Mommy’s belly even misses you; laying on it every night so I could rub your back to get you asleep. Every time I would enter your presence, you knew I was there; your eyes would open without me even having to speak. You grew so big just over the short time—such a butterball you were.  Time came and went in the blink of an eye and now Mommy, Daddy and Bubba are left with broken hearts. Holes that are left open with pain that only you could fill. We miss you so much and know that you are in a far better place. Never forget how much we love you and will always cherish the memories you gave us. What a blessing you were.

The day Maddie was born was the best day of my life. Although it was a challenge at times being a single mom; I absolutely loved nothing more than taking care of my li’l tater tot. She was an amazing blessing from God. Maddie was a happy, content baby. She rarely cried and loved to be in the company of absolutely anyone. She wasn’t very particular. As long as you talked to her and smiled once or twice, she was content with being in your company.

From the moment she made her arrival until the day she went to live in Heaven, she had everyone wrapped around her finger. It took just one look from those blue eyes and she had your heart. The weekdays were my time with her but the weekends I had to share her with the rest of the family. Saturday was her day with Uncle Tyler to watch baseball on TV and help Mama Nae around the house. Sunday was the day my other brother Scott came home, and he would play the piano and sing for her all afternoon.

I would give anything I could to have those days back, but I can’t. I’ll never forget the day that she passed away. It was harder too, since two months after Maddie was gone; my cousin’s baby girl Bailey Brooke Rorie also passed away from SIDS. All the wounds were just re-opened. It’s all burned into my memory like a bad nightmare. As time has gone by, it’s gotten better and better each day. God doesn’t make mistakes and he has a purpose and plan for everything. It took a lot for me to get to that place of mind, but I believe it with all my heart. I know that our sweet Maddie and all the other innocent little children had a purpose here. I know that their death had a purpose. Sometimes it’s hard to understand, but faith keeps you going.

I will forever be a changed and better person after having Maddie in my life and for that I am eternally grateful. Because of her and the ordeal of losing her; I am now finishing my psychology degree. I want to help other parents and families and friends overcome their grief after losing a child. I want to help them know that it is possible for your heart to heal. She made me who I am today.

I’ll see her again one day, but until then I’ll try to make her proud by the way I live every day. It also comforting know that she has some great company and members of her bigger family in Heaven to keep her occupied till I get there.

We love you Maddie and you will forever be in my heart and a HUGE part of my life.♥
