To my baby Benjamin William Fortner

To my baby Benjamin William Fortner, it is almost a year and it sure feels like decades, time is going so slow. I know at first I was very shocked and scared to know you existed but after your father and grandparents found out and I saw how happy they were I realized everything was going to be okay but it did not. I lost you my little Angel and I MISS you terribly, I would give up everything in this world to be able to hold you in my arms and tell you how much I love you. The other day I found the book I got you My first NASCAR book so Daddy could read to you at night it was so hard to put away so I placed it under my pillow and there it has been. I have been told time heals the pain but I am still waiting. I try to keep myself busy but it is those quiet times that get to me. I am still not ready to hold a newborn in my arms I get very sad. I wonder why so many times but then I stop and realized that you were an Angel sent by God to save my life that night because I would have not gone to the hospital if I did not know I was pregnant. I only went because I was afraid you were hurting and it turned out that I was the one that sick and did not know about it, so you see my Angel you saved your mommy that night not only physically but emotionally too. You helped open my eyes to what I want in life and what and who I did not need to be in it, including your Daddy. Thank you my sweet Angel. My love for you will never stop for you.

Love you FOREVER,
Your Mommy Gina Moran

To our dear little Angels,
You were with us for such a short but wonderful time. We felt hope, excitement and tremendous joy. Thank you for the joyful days you gave us. Many people do not know this kind of happiness, and we thank you for the superb experience.

When you died, the sadness was just as immense. But we are supporting each other and passing through the grief, each in our own way. We know that you would not want us to be forever sad about losing you. So we accept that this is Gods will, and know that it is not for us to understand why.

We take comfort knowing that the four of you are together in Heaven, with Great Grandma Luisa watching over you. She must be very busy!

We love you and will never, ever forget you.
Mummy, Daddy, and big sisters Mirei and Emma

Lost but never forgotten. I regret that I will never be able to hold you in my arms and show you how much you really mean to me. I know you are in good hands now. Even though I only got to feel you move once, I will never forget the way I felt when You did. It has been really hard for your Daddy and I to go on knowing that we will never get to care for you the way we wanted. But we will never forget and you will always be in our Hearts.
