I can't believe (child ment)

I can't believe that I was actually able to hold a little baby yesterday. A girl that was due two weeks after me came in with her son. He is nearly one month. I felt like a hand was patting my face (it had to be Damien) and had this overwhelming sense of peace. I asked if I could hold him as he was being fussy. She said yes as she couldn't get him to calm down all day. I cried, but it wasn't a bad cry. It just felt right. I just kept smelling his little head. He snuggled into my neck and quited right down and went to sleep. I don't know what others feel about signs and communications from our angels but I truly believe that Damien was sending me a message. I felt his love surround me letting me know that it is okay to feel everything that I have been feeling and it is also okay to be happy around other babies and give them the love that swells my heart. I almost feel a little guilty for being so happy with a baby in my arms when it has only been a couple of months since Damien flew to heaven. I know that I couldn't have made it through that without my angel boy's blessing. It really did great things for my healing.

That is so sweet. I am sure that Damien was right there with you.

You totally have me half on the bawl here!

I completely get what you're saying though about your son being there with you, touching you. I haven't felt that with my loss (my m/c, I mean), but I felt something very similar at my godchild's baptism 10 years ago. My godchild (who is also my cousin) was born just 9 days after my grandmother died. At the baptism, as the water was being poured over Erin's forehead, my mother, my aunt and I all turned to each other and said "She's here." You could just *feel* it, you know? It's like there wasn't even any question. We just KNEW. I completely believe that happens, but I think you also have to be open to feeling it too, as you were when you were holding that baby.

Congratulations! I have not held many babies on a few and it did feel good when I got up the courage to do so!
