Packing, packing, packing. A lot of throwing out and some more packing. Tape, boxes and a nikko marker. A room half full of boxes, neatly stacked almost to the roof.
A day of love. It was for Sebastian's baby shower, August 13, 2011.
I picked each one up and read through the messages inside.
"Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby boy, Sebby! He is such a precious gift from God, and we are so sorry you had to give him back to the Lord so soon..." (thankyou Becs)
A thankful smile reaches my lips as I think on the words 'congratulations'. They make me happy. Yes we had a great loss, but we still welcomed him into our family and we also felt the same joy that any new parent feels, only we could not keep him. Many of the cards only recognised our loss, not our joy.
