October is National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month. This contest is for all the beautiful and cherished LO's who have left this Earth too soon but remain always and forever in our hearts.

Submit (use the "Submit Entry" button) up to 3 photos of your Angel Baby. U/S photos are also welcome.



If you have more than one Angel, please enter them separately.



Please include their name & D.O.B., as well as their story... share as much as your heart desires.



I will TRY to have siggies made for our top 3 winners AND all other participants. I usually make my own and lately any free time I have is spent catching up on sleep (DH is still recovering from hip surgery).. I will ask around and if no one volunteers I will eventually get around to making the siggies myself, so please be patient.



I understand how painful this can be for everyone, but healing is remembering.

Coda Josiah Wakefield 5/29/11-6/4/11
May 29th at 5:00 a.m. I ended up going in preterm labor at 23 weeks and 3 days. They gave me medicine to hold it off for 12 hours. They wanted to hold me off till 25 weeks. At 5:46 p.m. I ended up having a 1 lb 7 oz 12 1/4 inch baby boy named Coda Josiah Wakefield. He went straight to NICU. I was able to see him just not hold him. He had problems like his skin wasn't developed yet and his lungs were very premature. His platelet count was very low and he received blood transfusions regularly. We found out there was blood in his lungs that Monday night. That ended up going away but coming back.Thursday we found out there was blood in his brain. It was labeled a stage 3 almost 4 out of 4. That wasn't life threatening. He would have had Cerebryl Parlsy, a learning disorder, or nothing. We also found out the valve in his heart was still opened but that would close and cause no problems. Friday we found out there was a hole in his intestines. We had to make the decision to do surgery or not. If we didn't he would have no chance. They did the surgery that night and came back great from it. During the night he took a turn for the worse. He started bleeding from the incision and all his vitals dropped. The nurses tried calling me around 2:00 a.m. but I guess I was exhausted from everything. He passed at 3:10 a.m. on June 4th. I was able to hold him for the 1st time when we got up there at 4:00 a.m. and I held him for hours. We had a memorial service for him that Sunday. Now, I am waiting for July 14th for my 6 week appointment to figure out what caused it, if I'll be able to get pregnant again, and what to do for the next pregnancy. I felt so bad because the whole time all I wanted was a girl even after I found out we were expecting a boy. We had our ultrasound at 22 weeks. A few days later I grew okay with having a boy after we started getting stuff for him. His name means "to return to the spirit of the Lord". Now, the next time I am expecting I dont care rather it is a boy or girl. One thing I know is if we end up only having girls, Coda will only mean that much more to us.

Deagan Kieran.
Born at 23 weeks 2 days on 10/11/11 @ 1:05pm
Weighed 1lb 6.3oz and measured 11.5 inches.
He lived approximately one hour after birth.



A few minutes after birth being held against his Daddy's chest in one hand with Daddy's ring around his arm---it could go all the way up his bicep. He was so teeny.

at 23 weeks even I went into sudden preterm labor. I had a bloody show at 11pm and went in immediately. I live 2 blocks from the hosptal and was there literally 5 minutes later. I was 6cm dilated with bulging waters. They didn't help me at all. didn't stop contractions, didn't do anything. I asked to have my bed inverted (feet in the air) and that helped keep him in 2 more days while I lay there and the doctors just waited for it to end. They refused to send me to another hospital because I wasnt 24 weeks and NO hospitals nearby help babies under 24 weeks. So I was SOL. They made NO attempts to stop my labor other than an IV and some antibiotics to prevent me from getting an infection (it didn't work) and made no attempts to save him when he was born.



IF it weren't a military hospital, I'd have a lot of medical licenses to use for target practices, but I can't do anything since its military.



I will never see another military doctor. Ever.

He is beautiful!



And it angers me how they made zero effort to save him. I am so very sorry.
