This is a big step for me to add a page on the subject of infant loss.
I suffered the loss of three pregnancies in a row over six years before
the wonderful gift of the birth of my second child. As a Neonatal Nurse
I work hard to help parents take home a healthy child, but dealing with
the loss of one of my little patients is a hard task. I feel that both
nurses and parents will benefit from the information here.
Thank you to Rebekah Mitchell, from MEND for getting me started.

I May Never See Tomorrow|
There's No Written Guarantee
And Things That Happened Yesterday
Belong To History,
I Cannot Predict The Future,
I Cannot Change The Past,
I Have Just The Present Moment,
I Must Treat It As My Last,
I Must Use This Moment Wisely
For It Soon Will Pass Away,
And Be Lost To Me Forever
As Part Of Yesterday,
I Must Exercise Compassion,
Help The Fallen To Their Feet,
Be A Friend Unto The Friendless,
Make An Empty Life Complete,
The Unkind Things I Do Today
May Never Be Undone,
And Friendships That I Fail To Win
May Nevermore Be Won,
I May Not Have Another Chance
On Bended Knee To Pray,
And Thank God With Humble Heart
For Giving Me This Day.
