What a beautiful, terribly sad poem.

I am so sorry you don't have your lovely daughter with her. I totally get why that loss will never fully heal.


I'm so sorry. I wish you could hold her tight.


A beautiful poem. Know that your love for her is knitted into those gloves. I wish the best for your future with E.


My heart is breaking for you today. Beautiful poem.


Lord what a poem! You have me in tears. Those gloves will fit her.


It's so lovely and sad and personal, all at the same time, that I almost feel I shouldn't comment.

I'm sorry.

I want to say that this, you, what you're feeling, is the hardest part for me of being a waiting adoptive family. How can I reconcile MY hopes and MY dreams with the pain and loss? I can't stand to read blogs like yours, but yet I want to so badly, it reminds me about the other side, it helps me remember the relationship I'm starting with another person, another family, the ones that feel loss, not joy in this.

I pray that your blog will make me a better friend to my future children's families. A better mother to my children. I want to thank you for being so real and open. It means a lot to me. It really does.

I know what you mean about wanting to be able to write poetry, to know how. That said, I think your poem is wonderful and incredibly evocative.

Thanks for sharing your pain, I just wish you didn't have to experience it at all.



Your words are so haunting.
