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!!

3 years

My baby girl would be 3 years old today! Three years!!! Three years!!!! So sad that I can only imagine what it would be like with her here! So sad our son does not have his big sister making him laugh, teaching him all the things she has come to know! So sad our family photos are not complete, are missing our firstborn, our daughter! Not a day goes by that our hearts don't ache for our baby girl!! I was recently asked how my life has been effected by the loss of my daughter! How do you answer such a question?? How has my life NOT been effected!?!?!? EVERY single aspect of my, of our lives has been "effected" by my daughters loss!! What a foolish question! (I'll save this rant for a later post) To my baby girl, I long til the time our family will be complete, til you are in our arms!!! Three years have passed but that means we are three years closer to being a complete family!!!

My baby would have been 3 years old on July 5th. I think Year Three has been the hardest. Much harder than the first birthday or second for me. I'm not sure why.

I also had preeclampsia with my son. It culminated in a placental abruption and I almost hemhorraged to death. He actually lived through the birth and came out okay. We thought it was a miracle. Then he died in his sleep 7 weeks later to SIDS.

I am so sorry about your daughter.
