IN MEMORY OF
ELIJAH JAMES BARKER
stillborn December 22, 2011.
by Mommy, Daddy, Big Brother Quentin, and the rest of the family:
We miss our baby! Went in on the night of 21 Dec due to decreased movement, there was no heartbeat. Elijah James Barker due date was 25 Dec 2011 but he came into the world sleeping on 22 Dec @735pm. 6 pounds 2 ounces, 19 inches. Looked just like his daddy with a subtle mixture of mommy. I kept him with me holding him, sleeping with him, crying, telling him to wake up, wanting him to grasp my finger, until I was discharged even when he started to get cold. It hurts when saying hello, means goodbye!! Mommy and Daddy love you so, so, so much!! Mommy and Daddy hearts will beat for yours!!! Daddy is being so strong for both of us. I break down a lot but he is always there to bring me back. I just wonder if I will have the strength to hold us up when he needs me. And your older brother misses you too. He was expecting you to be here so he could play with you. Elijah please hold my hand through this, I need you now more than you need me. My little angel, Merry Christmas to you! Mommy and Daddy
