I Am a Mom of Two

I have an eight year old son, but I also had a miscarriage of a child in 2004. People always ask how many children I have. I tell them that I have two. One is living and the other is my angel baby. I will not pretend that my baby did not exist. He or she did and they are as much my child as my eight year old son is.

I am a mommy of two,grown children. I also have 3 angel babies, in which take care of one another up in heaven. I miscarried the first, third and forth babies. Although they are up in heaven I know they take care of one another guiding my paths in life. I am a very blessed person given all my life circumstance and have often said that my angels are guiding my path. I absolutely can relate to you saying you have an angel baby.

No apologies my dear friend, and am also sorry you too have an angel baby. I am sure our babies are in heaven right now with giant smiles as they see you, me and linda discussing our sweet they are.

You are a mom of two. You were pregnant the first time around and it resulted in you getting your son that is now eight years old. So that is lovely. Then you had a miscarriage in 2004. It was ever so sad that you lost your baby in that pregnancy. So you have one living child and one angel baby so that makes two children. You are never going to stop loving your dear little angel.

You are a mom of two even though one is living and the other is your angel baby. That baby will always be your baby. I think it's sweet that you tell people you have two children.

I always said the loss of a child must be the hardest pain to bear. I can't imagine losing a child. I think it is awesome that you call your unborn baby your angel. I believe life begins at conception so your angel baby was a person and I believe one day you will meet. God Bless.

Of course the time when you lost your children be very hard for you, but its a part of life. You should be happy that still you don't face having another child, of course you can't forget this incidence at the entire of your whole life.

I'm sorry for your loss. I know your angel baby is looking after you now . I'm not sure if it's applicable to all moms but my mom is the same. Everytime she's asked how many kids she has, her answer would be like 9 but only 6 are alive. Out of my 3 siblings that's not with us anymore, one was even a miscarraige of a few weeks old baby...so I think moms will never forget about all of their children.

Hi Linda, That is great that you do that. I have an angel baby too but for me I have found it painful to talk about her too much. She was stillborn and I carried her full term this was 12 years a go. They told me I wouldn't have anymore babies they were way wrong and I had three healthy babies afterward. =) My parents did talk about their angel baby often, and my sister lost a teenage son five years a go. When talking about her children she still says she has 3 =) You are so right about this you do have two one living and my angel baby and that angel baby is just as much your child as your eight your old. I will always love my baby that didn't make it, as much as I love the ones that did.

I went through this and also was told to terminate another or I would die. I never thought like this before. I worked so hard to forget the pain it would just about ruin me to think other wise Your very special to be able to be this strong. I like that a lot.

I think it's fine not to pretend that he or she ever existed, the angel baby or any child borne by us will always be part of our lives and it does not mater whether living or not. I know of a friend that is into a similar situation and she just says I have this number of kids but so and so is gone now,,, and just explain circumstances when people ask, think it's very natural, good luck and God bless you.
