A Sad Birthday

6 years ago, I gave birth to a stillborn son, we named him Joel.

I guess this day will always be a sad day, when our little treasure is missed more deeply. A day to walk that next step on the journey through grief.

This time last year I managed to start scrapping a memorial album. I might try to add another page or two over the next few weeks.


  1. Oh Angela ... I just came from your link at RAKScraps to congratulate you on your new blog and read this personal post. My oldest sister also lost a baby at birth. She had nine children, alive and well, when she died at 91 but I remember her speaking of Maxine only months before her death. This dead child had life in her memories - so it will be with you. Hugs ...

  2. Hi Angela,
    Followed your link from RAKscraps. Congrats on your new blog and thanks for being generous enough to share your talents with the rest of us.
    I'm so sorry to hear about your little Joel - I can't even imagine the terrible loss you must feel. Hopefully time has eased the sharpest of the pain, and you can look forward with hope to the day you will meet him in heaven.

  3. My heart aches for you. I shed some tears looking at your Memory Album. Joel is a precious angel.

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss Angela and I'll be thinking about you.

  5. Oh, Angela. My heart is with you in this.

  6. Hey Angela!

    Congrats on your new blog!!! I see you all the time at RAKs and just came over to check ya out.

    I will have you in my prayers at this hard time. We lost a child a year ago last Sept 27th... so I know almost how you feel. This was my 3rd loss in my life of children and all I can say is eventually time will start to soften the wounds and heal them but you will always remember if you are a loving person. You can't help it. I lost my first son almost 19 years ago and I still think of him as my little one. and another in 1992 and then the recent one and no living children to date... but GOD has given me the challenge to strengthen me.

    See You around and if you ever need anything, you can always hollar for me on the boards.

    Love and Huggs sent to you!
