#misCOURAGE story by Martina,

My mum told me that babies are little angels. But my angel was not meant to be mine... I am still questioning why...I still hear those phrases doctor told us and see those pictures on the screen when I close my eyes.

It's been a week, for me it feels like ages...My husband is very supportive, he tries to make me feel better. But I cannot stop crying. He says we need to look to the future, but if I did, I would have to say goodbye to my baby and it hurts so much.

I will never have a chance to see your face, to know you, but I will always remember you. You will always live in my heart...
