Stella's Story: Part 1

Here is the beginning of Stella's Story: Stella's Story: Part 1
The rest is coming soon!


Fabulous faint magenta pink
so excited I could hardly speak
Two little lines, four beaming faces
over two long years of anxious waiting

Sweet baby girly frilly pink
filling the closest with special things
A heart sleeper picked by her big brother
He could hardly wait to keep buying others

Mountains of thin dull carnation pink
perinatologist receipts
Sixteen weeks of ultrasounds
barely surpassing four tiny pounds

Cotton candy bubblegum pink
Polka dots and ladybug trinkets
There for her when she comes home
an awful suspicion we'd arrive alone

The most beautiful shade of puffy fresh pink
the pink of her hands and the pink of her feet
Ten perfect fingers and ten perfect toes
golden blonde hair, small mommy-shaped nose

Curly feminine letters of bright hot pink
spelling out her name in permanent ink
Written on our hearts for all of our lives
a few more precious hours until she loses her fight

Gloomy pale serious satiny pink
lining her casket for no one to see
Mementos and memories are all that remain
of my sweet miracle girl with the most perfect name

This is the story of our daughter, Stella Rose, who went to be with Jesus after five days here on this earth. Stella was born with multiple birth defects due to a severe case of Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome. Although Stella is no longer with us in person, she has changed us forever. Stella's legacy is my journey on a new road without my daughter, and how God is working in our hearts.
