Your portrait  / Mama (Mommy)
I've been on a waiting list for a wonderful artist to draw a picture of you. I'm finally near the top of the list and we've been working for a couple of weeks to design the picture that really captures your beauty and your spirit.  I think we're almost there. I can't wait to see the finished drawing. It will be on the wall for everyone to see my sweetiepie. I love you darling. Close

A butterfly  / Mama (Mommy)
Yesterday mama was so low and hurting so much to hold you in her arms. I cried so many times that day missing you, my baby girl. But you came and touched me when I needed you most. A beautiful Monarch butterfly fluttered up to me and landed on my arm. It brightened my day to see that beautiful creature that reminds me so much of you. Beautiful and free you will always be.

Much love,

Mama

Maddie:

I know you are in heaven watching over everybody down here. I know that you are in a better place than we could ever be. You have the greatest parents. They have done so much and said so much to express their love for you. I have been pondering over what to say since May 13, 2006 and I am still lost for words. 

Ashley has always wanted to be a mother and I know for a fact that if your were here with her you would be in the best of care...and definitely spoiled rotten. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I love you and you better keep watching over my friend.

Hello angel of mine, light of my life. Today you would be 4 months old. I thought of you this morning while I was ironing my clothes for work. I wished you were in your nursery right across the hall from me. I miss you so much. I love you, my darling. Have a wonderful day in heaven's playground.

I'm sending you lots of hugs and kisses.

Your Due Date  / Ashley Douglas (Mama)  Read >>
Your Due Date  / Ashley Douglas (Mama)
My sweet, sweet baby girl you should be in my arms right now or getting ready to make your grand debut. Your due date was 2 short days ago. Your daddy and I were in Hot Springs that day taking a little honeymoon after being married for a year.

I woke up early that morning and all I could think about was you. I wished I was at home all big and preggo or in the hospital giving birth to you. The whole day thoughts of you filled my mind. I know that you are with us all the time, but I wish I could see you again. I wish I could hold you again and give you a little kiss. XOXOXO

That day we searched the diamond mine for a diamond to name after you. I did buy a beatiful figurine instead. It's a statue of a pregnant mother rubbing her belly and looking down lovingly at the life growing inside of her. I remember that time so well. I'll never forget feeling you move and the nights that your daddy would spend so much time with his hand on my tummy. We both miss you so much, our baby angel.

Love you always and forever.

    Nearing your due date and you are on my mind & in my heart more than ever.  I know that you joyfully dance, with fairy wings & chiming giggles, about Our Father's Throne and a better place you couldn't be. 
    Nonetheless our arms hunger for your presence as our hearts hunger for your smiles.  Slowly, ever so slowly, our tears (for our loss) are turning to smiles.  As we dream of what might have been in our life with you, we know that never again will a chance of loving, laughter, or joy, with those who are here with us, be allowed to get away from us.
    As we dream of what might have been with you, we will be certain to look at all children with a kinder eye, listen to them with a more patient ear, & be ever on our guard to give them the best examples of ideal behavior.  For we wouldn't have you be ashamed of us for even a second.   
    As we dream of what might have been, we are thankful that you have brought us closer to Our Father, as we pray more often & more sincerly.  We begin to look up & out, at the rest of world & life.  Thank you, tiny angel, Madison for the gift of your love we feel in our hearts each & every time a bird calls, a leaf rustles, a bell chimes, a kitten mews, or any of the other sounds of life renewing itself.

HUGS & KISSES,  TICKLES & GIGGLES, SECRETS & TRUTHS,

3 months old  / Mama (Mommy)
Tomorrow you would be 3 months old. Some days are so hard for me because you should be getting ready for the world now. I should be in my final weeks of pregnancy. Your daddy and I will visit you tomorrow to bring you more pretty flowers and a new pinwheel. This one is green because it's your daddy's favorite color. I'm hoping to have a drawing of us together soon. Hopefully, your uncle John will be able to draw it for me. I wrote us a poem this morning. I hope you like it. I miss you always. Be good.

So sorry to hear of your loss, I did not know about Maddie until today.  Your mother and I are cousins from Louisiana also - Iota, LA - which is between Lafayette and Lake Charles.
My prayers are with you and your family

I've used these pencil drawings of Jesus dozens of times in my overhead slideshows for church. But I never thought that they would be bringing me comfort in my time of need. I know that my baby girl is being well taken care of. She's safe and loved in our Father's arms.

My heart goes out to you. I remember when I was pregnant with Melody, I took such delight in communing with her .  She would always rap three tmes on my womb and the stop and wait for me to reply. She would also move to music that i heard.

I am sure that the two of you have your own special memories of the prebirth connection as well as the few precious hours she was with you after birth.

I also remember the devistation I had after I suffered a miscarriage. There were some people who couldn't understand how devistated I was over a child That had never been born, but I hurt for every hope and dream I had for my chld.  You never completely get over these losses, and you don't want to, because you don't ever want to forget the child who blessed you for such a short time.

I think it's a God thing that I was reading James Van Praagh's book "Healing Grief" when I got word of your loss. It has some very supportive and helpful messages for those who have lost a loved one, and a whole chapter especially for those who have lost a child. It's full of ways to help you cope while you try to continue life with such a great hole in it where your aby would be.

Know that the soul never ends. You will find her in dreams. The sound of a child's laughter will remind you that your little angel is still nearby, blessing mommy and Daddy in her own special way. Close

 Maddie wasn't ready for this world, but she was created in God's image, with a spirit that was born ready for heaven.  Psalms 139 says :

1 O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. 3 You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. 4 Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. 5 You hem me in--behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.   

13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 

Even though we don't understand why Maddie was born premature, we do know that God was with her, and that now she is with Him.  There is no doubt in my mind that on that very night, she was being cradled in the arms of Jesus.  As we wept, she rejoiced in the prescence of God.  We can only imagine the joy that she's experiencing right now.  
Ashley and Robert, we love you, and our prayers are with you.
Keith

I wonder  / Ashley Douglas (Mama)
  I wonder all the time do you think of me? Do you miss me? I think of you all the time. Everytime I see a pregnant woman, I think of how far along I would be now. Everytime I see a baby, you come to my mind. Each time I hear a lullaby or see a butterfly or watch the sunset, I think of you. I know that you are so happy now, and as much as I miss you I wouldn't take away your wings. I will live my life trying to be the best person I can be so that I can one day experience the joy of being an angel in heaven with you.

I didn't get to met Maddie and for that I will always be sad. I listened to her father talk about her from the moment that he knew she was going to be coming into his life.  There is only the comfort of faith and the living to guide us through this grief, but Madison please believe that we love you and will never forget you. 

Aunt to an Angel

You lived strong,
You died well,
May the angels guide you on your path Close
