Goodbye, Baby Sprout…

one of the names that i’d liked a long time ago for a girl is janoah. since i really like michael w smith’s song “hello, goodbye” about a baby named noah, i thought it was appropriate to name this baby janoah…

Where’s the Navigator of your destiny?
Where is the Dealer of this hand?
Who can explain life and its brevity
‘Cause there is nothing here that I can understand

You and I have barely met
And I just don’t want to let go of you yet


Janoah, hello, goodbye
I will see you on the other side
Janoah, sweet child of mine
I will see you on the other side

And so I hold your tiny hand in mine
For the hardest thing I’ve ever had to face
Heaven calls for you before it calls for me
When you get there, save me a place

A place where I can share your smile
And I can hold you for more than just a while



i have felt sympathy for my friends who have lost babies. but i don’t think i ever truly understood. the pain is excruciating. if it weren’t for the precious boys i have here who need me, i would want to just curl up in a ball and die, to go be with janoah and Jesus. there are no real words to explain how i feel.

the cramping is much worse, though still not to the pain level of a normal menstrual cycle. the bleeding is the same as a menstrual cycle, with some clots. the HCG levels did not rise like they should have. the first was 1, 880 and the second was only 1, 968.

good bye, sweet janoah. but how can it be a good bye, when i never even got to meet you? to see your sweet face? to hold you and kiss you?

at first i wasn’t sure…

i didn’t think i was ready for another baby

but then i was so excited to meet you

to hold you, kiss you, hug you

i loved you already…

then i thought i might lose you

and i was devestated and crushed

but i still held out hope

well now i know you’re leaving

you may already be gone…

and i miss you so much,

my sweet baby girl

i will always hold a place for you

in my heart, my child

i love you, janoah.
