I use just about every excuse I can to honor Emilia and to show the world how much love I hold in my heart for her. The love is overflowing! My struggle at this point is finding a place to pour all of this love into. With Adelaide (my living child) I can hug and kiss her. I can spend time with her – teach her how to do all sorts of things and make lasting memories with her. I often wonder if Emilia can feel the love that I have for her. Does she know how incredibly missed she is? Does she know I would have laid down my own life to save her? If my love alone could have saved her, she would have lived forever.
I have found many online memorial spaces, but none are nearly as touching as the Stars of Remembrance Memorial. Parents can submit a message in memory of their baby or simply provide a name and date to have a new star placed in the night’s sky, linked to their message. Above is Emilia’s star and the special message we dedicated to her. Look at all of those beautiful stars! Each one represents a life taken far too soon. Each one represents a family that yearns to hold their child again. I full heartedly believe the following passage, “Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy”. I see you, Emilia, and I am listening!
