I've never met you, but I still mourn your loss. I've never been able to hold you in my arms, whisper lullabies to you, and rock you to sleep. But I still love you with a mother's love so fierce it leaves me bewildered and out of breath.
I felt you kicking deep inside me yesterday, and I smiled to myself, and rubbed my tummy.
And today, well today, you are gone. I told Cade that you were in Heaven with Jesus and that you are very, very happy. And I believe it.
I loved you from the moment I knew you were inside me. And even though you are not anymore, I will love you and think of you every day for the rest of my life. Because you are my daughter. And I know you. And I love you.
And I believe that when I leave this life, I will join you in the next. And I will finally be able to hold you and marvel at your beautiful fingers and toes and kiss your nose and your eyelids and call you mine.
I will miss you, my darling Kendall Penny Breivik. Til we meet again, Baby Girl. Til we meet again.
