In Memory of Kelsey Patricia

27 years ago today, I gave birth to my only daughter - Kelsey Patricia.  She was born at 4:32 p.m.  and she died at 7:40 p.m. 

I never think about this day as being a sad day as the sadness and grief has long since passed.  I instead sit sometimes and wonder what she would have become had she lived.  Would she be married with children?  I never feel sad about it.  After Kelsey I was able to have two wonderful sons that have given me great joy.

I have several reasons to look forward to going to heaven some day and Kelsey is one of those special reasons.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I just read this today...though you had mentioned previously that you had lost a daughter soon after birth. I am glad that you do not feel sad on this day...after all...a birthday is to celebrate! Even though your daughter was there just a few short hours after birth I bet that she changed your lives within those few short hours. Blessings to you.
