Do you remember 12?

I had a crush on a boy named Walker. I hated Amy, a girl in my class. I used to fake asthma attacks to get out of gym.

I would run with my dog Brandy all around our farm property. I did the Thirty Minute Workout in the summer to an aerobics show. I hated my hair, and wished it was wavy like Farrah Fawcett's.

I loved The Love Boat, especially when they had young people on. I wanted to grow up.

My son would have been 12 today. And I'm just feeling a little blue. I'm visiting some friends right now, which is why I haven't posted in a bit. We're going home tonight. If I were home I'd post a picture, but I'm on my friend's computer, and it's only dial up at that. But I just felt like remembering his birthday.

The holes in his heart meant he never even made it to one birthday. Instead, on the day he would have turned one we had a new baby, who is now 11, and I love her very much. But I always think of my little boy on August 6, and I look forward to seeing him again.

I miscarried three days before my Sept 4th is a day I remember even though the baby would have been born later. I'm sorry that you have to wait until you can meet him on the other side.

God was gracious too and we now have a almost one year old daughter. I like to think that she has a sister in Heaven (didn't know the gender of the baby..too early on in pregnancy to tell)...we named her Alegria Corazon..Spanish for joyful heart.

I mean we named the baby Alegria..our daughter has a different name. :)

I have surviving triplets from a quadruplet pregnancy. Our son lived for about 12 hours, but was too sick to live. His siblings will be 7 on the 25th of August. It's a day of joy and of mourning every year.
