this is pure heart poured into the page!
Oh Kerry. My heart aches for you after reading this. Big hugs and lots of love your way.
I'm sure that pain never goes away. Beautifully expressed here. Your words are so simple and sad and true. So sorry for your loss Kerry.
This layout is beautiful. Your words convey the feelings that they are meant to - pain, grief and heartache.
2 things I really liked about this layout, the first is the open space at the right, just looking at it I saw something was void, then when I read your journaling, your words were so simple but I completely understood your pain, and the void you created with your layout. Really nice, thank you for sharing.
so beautiful sweetie. im so sorry about your baby .. hugs

For the Scrap Therapy Challenge on Lauren Reid's Blog. The journaling turned out to be much harder than I anticipated. Even after all these years it gets me.
15 years ago I gave birth to a beautiful little boy that we named Joshua Patrick. 24 hours after he was born the nursing staff were concerned by some symptoms that Joshua was exhibiting. He was whisked away for testing. The Doctor diagnosed him quickly with meningitis and began aggressively treating him with antibiotics. Alas despite the valiant efforts of the doctors and nurses Josh didn’t make it and exactly 1 week after his birth he died. It was the hardest thing I had ever had to face. I was still so young. Although the crushing grief eased a little bit with each passing day I still even 15 years after losing my baby can recall every tiny detail of that week. My grandma once said that although the world will move on after a child dies a Mother never forgets. It is very true. I find now that when I look at this picture that not only do I feel sadness for the baby I lost but I feel a deep sense of grief for the young woman I was at the time. I lost my innocence that day. Now so many years later I am lucky to have 3 wonderful children but I can’t help but wonder what might have been….
