True knots were once a “rare” occurrence but becoming more common, and I am hoping to help fight awareness on umbilical cord accidents and make in-depth scans part of prenatal check-ups. If an umbilical cord accident can be detected, then why should someone else have to go through what I, and many women have gone through?
The moment the nurse placed Jack in my arms, was the very moment he claimed his spot in my heart, and he will own this spot forever. He is the first thing I think about when I wake up, and the last thing when I go to sleep. I find peace and comfort looking at his pictures, working on his baby book, and knowing that (even if he is not here physically) he is always with me in spirit. Always.
Mommy, Daddy and your big brother Billy love you so much Jack. We are all still a family, we will always be a family. When my day comes, you will be the first person I run to. I can’t wait to hold you again, sweet Angel, and I won’t ever forget you. I am proud to be your Mother, Jack. You are my first born, my baby….you’ll always be my baby. See you soon.
