“What We Wish For You To Know,” by Bridget High

We one day want a baby, one to call our own
We never dreamed this journey would make us so alone

We’ve felt the joys of pregnancy, the excitement of two lines
We’ve seen our babies’ heartbeat and even little spine.

But for us the magical moments always quickly fade away
our baby never makes it past that long awaited day

We leave the doctor’s office with tears and empty hands
trying to believe this was part of God’s plans

We have to be strong and pray for the best
hoping one day it will be our turn to be blessed

So when you see us cry or we have to walk away
please remember this disease affects us everyday


About this poem: I wrote this poem in honor of my son who passed January 3, 2012 from trisomies 8 and 18.  We delivered healthy triplets on September 30, 2012 at 30 weeks, a true miracle.

  1. Very nicely written! I’m moved by reading that this poem was written for your son who passed January 3, 2012 from trisomies 8 and 18… as I also lost my miracle daughter from trisomy 18 on January 7, 2012… but haven’t been able to get pregnant again since then…
    May you be blessed with your triplets…wow! what a gift from your angel baby!

    • Hi Julie,
      Thank you for your kind words! I’m so sorry for the loss of your daughter!
      Our triplets are definitely a blessing!!! How are you doing now?
