Uploaded on Jan 10, 2008 A tribute to mothers everywhere who do not have their babies with them. My DH and I have four babies in heaven now, including a set of twins. My husband's sister and her husband lost their three month old daughter to SIDS on Christmas Day 2006. Their pictures are also in this video.
I have learned that this poem was written by Jennifer Wasik for a couple who lost their son, Zachery. Thank you Jennifer Wasik for your beautiful gift... so many people have been touched by this beautiful poem. I cry every time I read it.
