Thank you Aidan

I went to a garage sale for a friend of mine this morning. We became friends after she was Aidan's NICU nurse and she was in the OR when Lucas was born. Ah-mazing to have that support and someone who knew our story closely. The NICU had donated a lot of preemie clothes to the sale (which is being held to raise money so my friend can adopt two children) and I was looking through the boy clothes trying to find the bigger sizes. Tucked in the middle of the pile was something that made my heart jump and sink all at the same time. I found the outfit that we put Aidan in after he passed. We were able to bathe him and then we put the outfit on. I have thought about this outfit ever since. Sadly when I see the outfit I see how Aidan looked when he was in it, but I have another piece of him. Another thing that touched my baby is now in my hands. I didn't cry while I was there, but I sure did let loose when I got home this afternoon.
Thank you Aidan for having this outfit be brought back into my life. I miss you baby boy and I love you so much. I wish you were here with us helping to take care of Lucas, but I know you are watching over us every day.

I love you Aidan Christopher



  1. Oh Maggie. I know how you feel. Every time I see blankets like Katie and Matthew's my heart sinks. I guarantee you that Aidan is, as always, proud of the Mommy you are to both him and Lucas.

  2. What a beautiful little sign that he is still watching out for you!

  3. That's so sweet! It made my heart swell to read it, so glad it was brought back into your life.
