Sadie Quinn Baker from Every Life Has A Story

Becky & Zak lost their first born child, Sadie Quinn, on July 10th, 2010 due to pre-eclampsia & HELLP syndrome at 24 weeks pregnant.

Hummingbirds remind me of my Sadie~tiny, gorgeous, and perfect! I was nearly kissed on my cheek by one my first week home from the hospital as I sat on my proch, there began my love for humming birds! I particularly love the ones with green on them as I imagine Sadie would have had green eyes like her daddy and myself!!

The way it goes

Yesterday I went to the local book store to buy a pregnancy journal for a friend, I loved mine so I wanted her to have one too. I mustered up the courage to go in the baby section (with the help of my dear friend margarita) and I picked the finest one I could find. Walked up to the unsuspecting cashier who proceeded to congratulate me on my pregnancy!!!!! The horror of horrors! The poor cashier had no idea what he said but as the tears streamed down, I think he understood the journal was not for me :-(
I was told while in The hospital that the world is not kind to grieving parents and while my poor husband reminds me that quite frequently, I am starting to get it!! OUR world stops and changes, but the rest of the world does not, it can't.
So to all my fellow grieving parents, I am so sorry!! I am sorry for our losses! I am sorry for the unkind world! I am sorry, so very sorry for each one of us!

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful little Sadie. We lost our daughter on November 19th at 22wks. A few days later we took her big sister to the mall to buy tights for her to wear to Kristens service. Santa was there, so we went to visit him as well (wanted to keep things as normal as possible for Jenna) This was the conversation:
Santa- Hello little girl what would you like for Christmas?
Jenna- A baby (by that she meant a dolly)
Santa- Maybe your Mommy and Daddy could get you a baby sister. You'd like that wouldn't you?!!
Jenna is only two, so I don't know if she caught on to how terrible that moment was for me and her Daddy!
So I'm very sympathetic to how unknowingly people can hurt you!!

I'm so very sorry for your loss too. None of us should have to go through this.
