Four Years Later

We have a little girl in our ward that was born the week that our Destiny was stillborn. We sang happy birthday to her in primary today at church. I often look at her and wonder what it would be like to have a little girl that age running around our house. Our life sure would have been different than it is right now. Time does heal wounds though. My time with Destiny changed my life for the better. Today is the day she was delivered (I never know if I should say it was the day she was born - or the day she died)

All I know is it is possible to love someone you haven't spent time with. She is a gentle soul whose presence I often feel.

Thank you for all you have done for me, my little Destiny Dawn Ackroyd.

I have have grown and changed through all this. I contemplated whether I should post anything. Sometimes I think people think I should move on. I know some people are uncomfortable with the topic. I guess the big reason for me is that I never want her to be forgotten.

Hugs! You do what you must do for yourself, and don't give a second thought to what other people think you should do! They have not walked in your shoes! I think you are doing just what you are supposed to be doing!! Vicki

Dawn, I think this was a lovely post. There is nothing wrong with loving your daughter. My heart goes out to you and I am glad you feel her presence.

Thanks for letting me know Destiny a little. I'm glad you posted on her birthday. Of course you should post all you want about her. She's your child!
