You did do the best thing for you both Miriam, no one should be forced into anything especially motherhood. Beautifuly written and bought a tear to my eye. I had a miscarriage and know I will meet my daughter again one day. We built a small memorial for her in the yard, that helps. Perhaps it may help for you too?

#############################

Now I want to be rude and digress..
A quick note to Julie...
Julie I was adopted as was my husband,
you still may meet your child one day. Don't lose hope or feel guilty. I found my mother.
If you'd like to talk email me, I had your email address and didn't feel right about imposing. Give it some thought.

Miriam,
A Beautiful tribute. You did the right thing only you can know if you are ready to be a Mom. You did the best you can do, that is enough. I had a miscarriage and have a small memorial plaque in the back yard in the garden (unobtrusively) and that helps.
Perhaps you could do the same?
I'm sending you a big hug and if you wanna talk please email me anytime.
##########################

I wish to digress and post a quick message to Julie.

Julie both my husband and I are adopted.
I found my mother. I know both sides of the coin mother/daughter now. I wanted to email you about it but didn't want to intrude. Perhaps you could email me if you want to talk.

I tried printing this response earlier and it didn't go through, hope this does.

Beautiful tribute. I admit I got teary eyed.
I lost a daughter to miscarriage and have a small memorial for her in the garden unobtrusively. Perhaps that would help you a bit too.
May I digress and say to Julie I am adopted and found my mum, my husband is adopted too. I found my mother, so know all the feelings for her and myself that were involved. I wanted to email you but didn't want to be obtrusive. If you want to talk or an opinion from an adoptee PLEASE email me.

Miriam,
A Beautiful Tribute. Moved me to tears.
I lost a daughter to miscarriage. I have a small unobtrusive memorial for her in my garden, it may help to do that.
You'll see her again and the reunion will be joyous. I send heartfelt hugs.....:

One last thank you to each and everyone of you. your hearts are all so warm. your hugs and blessings have worked wonders in me. i have found a great group of friends, friends which i can turn to for smiles laughs and tears. i love you all. for many years i've carried so much of this on my shoulders. thank you for taking some off. i wrote a poem titled "to YOU the reader" (it's already on one of the last pages) it's all i can do to thank you guys. i am here for each and everyone of you. tears are strolling down my cheeks right now. the only difference is that these tears are of joy, of belonging. thank you all, you've made me a happy person once again. thank you PFF. i love you for your kind and sweet heart. none of this could've been done without you. know someone out there cares and considers you a great person. thanks once again.

That is a beautiful loving poem!! I understand how you feel!!

I often sense you in the blue of the sky
When the darkness draws close
As the sun sets down to sleep
At the time of twilight
That time of day I so often love
You comfort me and love me when I cry
I love you always my little Starshine

Thank You so much for the courage to write such a piece!!

justbleu...thank you for the sweet piece. I hope you don't mind but I printed it out and have it in my organizer.
Juanita...If this poem hurt you I'm sorry. God knows I've hurt enough people in my life. Thank you for the sweet words of encouragement. And yes, I'm sure my baby has forgiven me...But what about my God? That's the one I need forgiveness from the most.

Miriam God was the first one to forgive you
the moment that you ask for His forgiveness.
God is love, understanding, compassion.
He knows your heart better than anybody.
He has forgiven you! now is time for you
to forgive yourself!!!

when i feel His forgiveness i know i'll be able to move on. He needs to forgive me for a lot of things actually. But how can He when I don't really ask Him for it. Sometimes my crime is so bad that i'm scared to kneel and talk to Him.

Oh Miriam! I wish I could give you a big
hug, I think you need a lot of hugging as
a matter of fact. You need to be told that
you're loved and that there is no sin that
cannot be forgiven. What was done was done,
we have to deal with today, today is important. you can forgive yourself, by
understanding that you had to make a decision at the time and you made the one
that you believed, at that particular time, to be the best for everybody concerned.
Now is time for you to go on, start anew.

Miriam.. You have inspired me to write my unborn child a letter. He would be 5years old last August. When i was 16 i was givin a choice: I could either have an abortion or be sent to live in some home for pregnant teens. I was a coward and i choice the abortion. How i wish i could've been strong. How i miss him and think of him everyday. With all the awe of a mother...i miss him. He has had such an impact on everything in my life (like he's been here). He gave me all this strength and what did i do...i turned him away. And i know he would bring so much happiness to me. I know now that i would take care of him and give him all the love he needs. At 16 i would have gave him all the love a babydoll needs...or would i? See, I still try to make excuses. I love my baby...not a day goes by that i don't wish i could correct that one monumental mistake that will forever be etched in my heart, mind, soul, and womb. Sleep little baby don't you cry...Momma's gonna find her strength sometime..and when she finds her strength down deep..Momma's gonna find you and will forever keep

I should be happy to know that so many people are responding to my poems but I'm not. I don't wish this paind upon anyone and to know that so many people have gone through it hurts me so much. Carman my heart goes out to you as well as to anyone who has responded to this poem. Togethera and with out compassionate words we will make it through, I know we will.

The hardest thing to do in our lifetime, is to make a decision based on circumstances and then forgive ourselves at a later time..but the beauty of life is that we grow and we learn and hopefully we understand the priorities in life, just as our finances do and our ability to take care of a little one does and these are constantly changing as we become older...to look back on yesterday with today's head is great but we can't go back, we can only go forward based on experience...

No-one here judges, and I think I can safely say, that all anyone here wants is for all of us to know peace and contentment and I hope we all do!

HUGS

Miriam...be proud of your work. This doesn't add to any pain..but helps the pain work itself out of the heart.

Miriam,

I have found out recently it is not only God's forgiveness but also our own forgiveness we need!!  I have to find a way to forgive myself!!  I hope you already have!!  
Take Care and God Bless,

I try my hardest not to bump into this poem to often...that's why I haven't replied.  Justbleu...I know that if you ask for forgiveness from your heart the Lord will hear your prayer.  This poem and the replies I got make me the strong person that I am now.  Thank you for your sweet words...I'll keep you in my prayers.
