I don’t have any words left.

My Zoë died this afternoon.

We don’t know why yet.

My Zoë is gone and my Lennox is gone and I don’t know if anything will ever fill this hole.

  del.icio.us this!

    “. . . sometimes the unfinished symphonies are the most beautiful . . .”

    Heartfelt sorrow.

    There are no words to express my sorrow for your family during this time. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your husband and your beautiful babies.

    I am so sorry. I came over from your other blog to leave a comment here too. I just had to.

    There are so many people grieving with you around the world. I have read the comments here and I see how devastated everyone is. I know that knowledge cannot really give you any comfort, right now. Sadly, there are a lot of us, who have lost twins and who just know and understand. At least as much as we can.

    What a beautiful little girl. I just wanted to tell you that too. And that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I found you through the Twinkies about 3 months ago, and I have been cheering your pregnancy on. I’m so sorry for both of your losses. I wish that I could give you a hug right now, and let you cry on my shoulder, vent to me, or scream. Life sucks. I’m so sorry.

    No, no, no, not sweet little Zoe – she was such a fighter, and so loved.

    Little babies have so much future and so much promise, and losing them hurts more in some ways than losing someone who has had the opportunity to fulfil that promise.

    I wish you enough strength to get through this. You have created a beautiful memorial to your lovely babies and they have touched people all over the world. Thank you for sharing Zoe’s and Lennox’s too-short lives with us.

    As I try to see the screen through my tears, my face is wet, my chest is hollow, and I know your sorrow is so very much bigger than the piece I feel for you and your family. You fought hard for her because that’s what parents do. The intense love, fear, hope, sadness, and all the other emotions that moms and dads feel, you have squeezed into just a few weeks. It will always be a part of you as will Zoe and Lennox.

    I have a picture of you dressed for a dance wearing a beautiful white dress. You are looking into your Dad’s camera…. smiling, brown eyes bright with anticipation and innocence. You will smile again but never with the innocence of youth. That’s not a bad thing because your next smile will reflect all that you have become…and include Zoe and Lennox, too.

    You have loved and your pain shared if not lifted from your heart and shoulders.
    Mrs. S
