Averie’s due date 

March 31st. Averie’s due date. 

I remember posting the announcement I made on Facebook and all the comments that followed. People saying they couldn’t wait to meet her, to hold her, to give her loves.

But nobody got to do that. They never got the chance. They were robbed of meeting our sweet girl. 

When I realized the 31st was coming up a few days ago my heart sunk. Year after year I’ll remember this day. A day that will come and go offering no special significance to most, but to me it will forever hold a special place in my heart. 

Some may wonder why it’s such a hard day because most babies are not born on their due dates. That’s not the point though. It’s that there is one more day reminding me she is gone, one more day a year she isn’t here for us to hold and love on, one more day my sweet girl doesn’t get older we just get further away from the last time we held her. 

A brutal reminder that she never made it to her due date. That alone makes the 31st such a cruel day. 

We miss you sweet girl. So so so very much ❤❤

    These dates are hard, but they are special. They remind us of the love we have for our little ones. They remind us of who they were and the people they have made us into. And Averie has made you strong. xxx

      Thank you so much! I agree they are special in their own way. It is a reminder that she was with us and always will be no matter what. I sometimes I have to remember these things so thank you for helping me see that xxx

    I always tell friends when they share with me that somebody they love lost a baby to remember and acknowledge the due date. It’s a big day and us momma’s remember and need love. Gabriel’s due date is in April. It’s a reminder of what should have been but wasn’t. Thinking about you.

      Thank you so much. I agree these dates are so sacred for us and usually when they come up nobody but us remembers them so we kind of suffer in silence. I would love to think of Gabriel on his due date. I hope I didn’t miss it already which day in April is it?
