That silver necklace

That silver necklace you see

hanging from my neck,

is not just any regular piece of jewelry.

It tells a story,

of a precious little girl.

A little girl who had life,

and a battle to fight

since the day she entered this world.

A story of a girl with a terminal diagnosis,

and lived for two months and 1 day.

A story of a daughter, sister, and friend to many.

This silver necklace, is a bond that connects many parents,

who have lost a child of their own.

This silver necklace has life, a meaning,

and a story to be told,

and will never be just an ordinary piece of jewelry.

    This is so sweet. Praying for you!

    My mom had my brother and then had a little girl who only lived for two weeks. She was so devastated. She didn’t know where to turn and knew that she didn’t want to be put on any medication. A Christian counselor suggested that perhaps she should adopt. After being on a waiting list for two years, she brought me home as a two month old baby. I can’t wait to meet my sister in heaven one day! 🙂
